    025: Elaine Welteroth. Harnessing Ambition. Navigating Office Politics.

    As the youngest ever person to be appointed editor-in-chief of a Condé Nast title – and only the second ever African American person to hold that position – former Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth was the driving force behind the magazine’s pivot to a more political, more socially conscious editorial stance that earned it an army of new readers and admirers.
    An award-winning writer and New York Times bestselling author (on account of her memoir More Than Enough), Elaine has charted a pretty unprecedented course through the media industry – and she’s only just getting started.
    We managed to cover so much on this episode, from existential careers crises and navigating toxic working environments, to how to approach your career role models for advice, and the salary negotiation lessons Elaine had to learn the hard way. Her story is a lesson in harnessing ambition whilst staying true to yourself, and Elaine speaks with refreshing candour about the ups and downs of being at the forefront of one of the most prestigious media brands in the world.

    024: Funmi Fetto. Racism In Beauty. From Print To Digital.

    024: Funmi Fetto. Racism In Beauty. From Print To Digital.

    Seasoned fashion and beauty editor Funmi Fetto is something of an anomaly within the magazine world – a black journalist who’s risen to the heady heights of executive editor and beauty director of Glamour magazine, by way of a stint as beauty editor at British Vogue, and an on-going column for the Observer. She’s recently published Palette, a carefully curated beauty guide aimed specifically at women of colour that British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful has described as “ground-breaking and essential reading”.
    We get deep on the subject of racism within the beauty industry, with Funmi sharing her experiences navigating the predominantly white spaces of fashion, and the wider issues that still persist when it comes to how brands interact with black consumers, from colourism and discriminatory marketing tactics to microaggressions and outright racism. Plus – Funmi gives her opinion on the so-called death of print media and how media outlets should adapt to our new digital reality, as well as a few pointers for aspiring magazine journalists hoping to break into an endlessly competitive industry.

    Consider this episode a masterclass in brand storytelling, courtesy of Kate Hamilton and Emily Ames, co-founders of content and communications agency Sonder & Tell, which specialises in helping brands craft their messaging and figure out how best to communicate with their customers.

    On this episode they share vital tips for brands trying to figure out how to do ‘content’ properly, addressing everything from the importance of creating a strong brand narrative (and how to do that), to why so many brands seem to keep getting it wrong. Plus, find out what to expect when it comes to getting a service-based business off the ground, as Kate and Emily share what they’ve learned about business development, setting their rates, and figuring out which clients and projects are going to be more trouble than they’re worth…

    022: Alison Roman. Writing Accessibly. Freelance Money Lessons.

    Food writer and chef Alison Roman look set to be the millennial inheritor to Nigella’s domestic goddess crown – funny, sharp, and (cliché though it might sound) effortlessly cool, it’s no wonder she’s developed a cult following in the US (and racked up over 200,000 followers on Instagram). A columnist for the New York Times and contributor to food magazine Bon Appetit, Alison’s also the author of two cookbooks – Dining In, a best-selling collection of recipes published in 2017, and the forthcoming Nothing Fancy (out October 31st).
    On today’s episode we talk about how she navigated the hyper-masculine world of restaurant kitchens as a young woman, the money lessons she’s learned since becoming self-employed four years ago, and the effect having a huge Instagram following has had on her career, both good and bad. 
    Nothing Fancy (Hardie Grant) is out on October 31st.
