Women Across Frontiers is proud to introduce its new podcast, Listen, Ladies, premiering in April 2017.
Listen, Ladies will be co-hosted by friends and fellow journalists Maryalice Aymong and Julia Moser. They aim to feature interviews with experts and innovators in a broad range of fields and plan to highlight stories involving pop culture, current events in the United States and abroad, as well as breakthroughs in the the arts and academic communities. In addition to journalism, Ms. Aymong and Ms. Moser have academic backgrounds in international relations and history, respectively.
The inaugural episode of Listen, Ladies will be focused on women in male-dominated spaces, and will shine a light on three industries in particular: film, restaurants, and trucking. Three inspiring women who ignored or confronted stereotypes head-on to pursue their passion will share their stories and advice. This includes director and producer Stacy Title whose film ‘The Bye Bye Man’ recently hit theatres. Women make up 49% of Horror audiences (compared to 47% of all movies), yet the the number of women horror filmmakers is far from representative of that audience. Ms. Title will take us through her journey to the director’s chair, and share what it’s like to be part of her small but powerful minority.
The Women Across Frontiers team is proud to add this new edition to its illuminating coverage and looks forward to welcoming new readers and lis teners when Listen, Ladies hits the airwaves. Episodes will be available on iTunes.
