    Tori Allen as a freelancer is a lot like old Tori, just with more babies

    Tori Allen as a freelancer is a lot like old Tori, just with more babies

    Tori Allen is a freelance producer and journalist living in Thailand. We became friends during her eight years at CBC Radio working on Metro Morning, q and DNTO.
    Last year Tori and I sat in the bunkie of a cottage at our annual Lady Camp trip and talked about how living abroad as a 'trailing spouse' means she constantly reinvents herself for work, something she realizes she has always done.

    Originally from Missouri, Erica spent the last 10 years as a TV news reporter, working her way up to daily reporting with CBS Los Angeles.
    Less than a year ago, Erica quit her job to start The Newsworthy with Erica Mandy, a daily 10 minute news podcast. It has since been featured on various lists, including '12 essential current event podcasts' on Salon and the Itunes New and Notable front page.
    She explains how she got herself together before jumping ship.

Enjoyable and inspiring

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and found it inspiring even though I am not in media. I am in the policy world but I think many of the insights apply! I also like the segment at the end about would I have done something differently (Yes, especially as a women of colour and an immigrant professional in a largely white policy world).

The world needs #mediagirlfriends!

The world needs #mediagirlfriends! The podcast’s message of “by lifting her up I am lifted up too, as are we all” is a balm in this era of scarcity thinking that there isn’t enough success to go around. And the platform for many different perspectives and experiences ... it’s everything! I’m so glad and grateful Nana aba created it.

What's not to love about Media Girlfriends?

Nana aba is a stellar host and has created an really amazing podcast! Media Girlfriends is real talk about the workplace, careers, race, culture, the Canada we're living in, gender, and so much more!! The conversations between Nana aba and her accomplished and interesting guests offer so much to young women navigating careers, life, relationships, identity, and the media.
