Women are intelligent beings... what interests you?
I know women are intelligent. And I know women are consuming so much content online these days. I know this not because I am the Oracle (pretty close to it, though), but because I also consume a lot of content. Whether it be reading the news and blogs online or listening to podcasts, predominantly about women's issues, but also about fashion and sustainability, real life stories, start-ups, female-led businesses, politics (sometimes) and fiction - oh, and we can't forget Instagram.
One of the great things about technology, and the internet, is that there's more content than ever being produced by women for women. Content we want to listen to and which I can't get enough of! Prior to now, content was largely featured on the TV, radio, newspapers and magazines only and these forms of media were predominantly created by men, for men and the small amount of content targeted at women was predominantly created by men for women. Because, you know, men know everything.
Anyway, I'm sharing some interesting podcasts (mostly podcasts) which I listen to... Podcasts are brilliant for exercise and cleaning. They are only thing that distract me from the painful task at hand...
This is some of what I'm listening to:
- Mamamia Out Loud (so good when I first moved to Byron and had no friends - just poured myself a wine and turned this on).
- Ear Hustle - produced about life in a men's prison in the USA. Fascinating. Can't wait for season 2.
- No Filter - Mia Freedman interviews so many interesting people and isn't afraid to ask the hard questions.
- Tell Me It's Going To Be Okay - Dissecting everything 'Trump'.
- Dirty John - just one of many crime podcasts I've listened to.
- Fighting For Fair (not being made anymore but good catalogue of past stories)
- Wardrobe Crisis with Clare Press.
- Ladies, We Need To Talk - made me blush (the one about menstruation). haha.
- Super Soul Conversations - Oprah's new podcast. So good.
- My Dad Wrote a Porno - Not safe for work, but hilarious if you're bored and have ear phones...
