Finally, a podcast that studies, analyzes and celebrates women in TV. Thousands of comedies, variety shows and dramas have aired, yet the presence of strong women – both in front of and behind the camera - is an experience we need to understand better and embrace.

With an eye to aligning the leadership lesson, time capsule observation or fascinating backstory of a show’s success or failure, my goal of Advanced TV Herstory is to connect the treasures of the past to the great potential of today’s TV and online platforms. Tomorrow’s success is rooted in understanding what has come before us. So gear up for a little sociology, economics, strategy, storytelling and fun.

The “Wow” factor

Who knew? All these shows I grew up watching - it’s fascinating to learn the back stories, and the impact on shows that came later. I find myself thinking “wow - I never knew that!” every time.

What Was And Will Be

Abrams does a beautiful job of creating comprehensive episodes on women's impact in TV. Not only does she do clear research, but she includes experts to offer a more nuanced view. Episodes range from single TV episodes to overall social change through the medium. Definitely worth high praise.

Fascinating, compelling, very high quality

I loooooooooooooove this podcast. There are so many media podcasts that are basically just "two dudes talk about shows they like" and this is a perfect antidote for the worst of those. The podcast feels like the best kind of media studies college class with the professor you want to hang around to talk to after class. Highly, highly recommended and can't wait for more episodes!
