    Ep 8: 'Women in Radio' with Stephanie Hirst and Vicki Blight

    Ep 8: 'Women in Radio' with Stephanie Hirst and Vicki Blight

    Firstly, MEN are welcome, secondly, this is not a big feminist moan or outcry. This is an inspiring, stripped back, no-holds-barred conversation about 'women in radio' with two of my favourite female counterparts in the industry. We dip into Steph's transition from her sucessful broadcasting career on Capital Yorkshire as Simon and what the differences are after having the 'incredible priviledge' of being able to broadcast as a man and now as her true-self, Stephanie. What. A. Hero. Enjoy x

Polly James

10 things I love about you my decade in radio

If the next seven episodes are anything like the first 3, there is no doubt that people will be listening to this podcast series for decades to come.

To the novice anorak this is a dream come true as Polly explores the genres of British radio complete with outstanding guests like Pat Sharp and Steve Allen. Even if you’re not an anorak Polly’s trip through British radio is well worth the ride.

Why?

It is a concern that there exists narcissism so grotesquely high that a decade in a job earns some special award or advertise yourself.
Back when people in the media were of great talent I can see this having a place not to mention the content being of suitable standard.
This is celeb culture and social media generation with all its ugly side effects mixed together.
