Rosie Smith & Sarah Toporoff - "Radio has never been more Together"
"Radio has never been more Together. We support each other, we work together, we collaborate. [...] Everybody is just together broadcasting, trying to make good content for the listeners, trying to support their communities. It's an amazing industry to be in at any time, but especially right now."
For this special episode about the impact of COVID-19 on the Radio industry, Rosie Smith and Sarah Toporoff join me for a chat about how Tech has allowed people to stay On Air and safe, how structure and content of Radio shows and podcasts are evolving and how we'll learn from this experience, making great content from home.

"Just like the way we see color differently, we all hear differently, and unfortunately we design things for people who hear in a perfect way and we just need to be a bit more inclusive about it."

Sujata Sharma - "Don't take no for an answer"
"Don't take no for an answer anytime, as long as you have the confidence and the will to do it. It's very important that you seek out help in every way, because everybody is ready to help you, you just need to ask for it."

Charlie Azincot - "La persérvérance et le travail paient toujours " (French Episode)
"Si tu veux quelque chose, donne toi les moyens, et j'insiste parce que la persévérance et le travail paient toujours. [...] Mais finalement la vie est courte il faut tenter. Si j'étais capable de renter à Radio France alors je suis capable de faire des choses encore plus intéressantes, ou meme d'autres choses dans le monde de la Technique. Finalement si les autres y sont arrivés, pourquoi pas moi?"
Today's special French episode with Charlie Azincot, discussing her varied studies and career switch from the audio industry to Radio France, and how different industries face similar diversity challenges, to a different degree.
Mariana Lopez - "New voices bring progress to the audio industry"
"New voices bring progress to the audio industry, and to any industry. So I feel very strongly in making sure there is equal representation because ultimately it does make the field better when we listen to what other people say and we allow other people to challenge the way we work."
Today's discussion with Mariana Lopez about her senior lecturer role in sound production and post production at the University of York, her research on acoustics and heritage, and sound design and accessibility, and her experience with diversity in the audio industry.
