Wonderful podcast!

I am so happy that this podcast exists. After listening to the first episode, I found myself quickly binging the entire catalog. Even if you aren't a composer, I think you can still find a lot that is fascinating to hear and learn. The personalities and voices — both musical and literal — are so varied, and I love the diversity of the women interviewed. This is a very well-produced podcast, and I appreciate how much time and effort putting these interviews together must take the host. Please have a listen, it's really an important subject!

Educational and Engaging

Thank you for creating this educational and engaging podcast. Since I started listening to Listening to Ladies, I have learned so much about the music of composers I did not know much about. I am glad that Elisabeth Blair took the initiative to create this podcast to let the world know about the music created by these diverse group of women composers.
