The Pod Broads: A Podcast About Women in Podcasting

Are you obsessed with podcasts and uplifting women’s voices? If so, then this podcast is for you. The Pod Broads is a podcast about women in podcasting hosted by writer, educator, and podcast PR and social media content strategist Alexandra Cohl. Each episode, Alexandra interviews a woman in the podcast industry about her current work, her career path, and how her personal life intersects with all of that. As of 2021, women in the podcasting industry are still underrepresented and only make up 1/3rd of the hosts on major networks. Alexandra wants to change that. This podcast will give listeners an inside look into the lived experience of the women podcasters they already love and ones they are just meeting. Conversation topics will include but are not limited to mental health, imposter syndrome, the personal and the political, workplace culture, challenges and wins, and other reflections. This podcast is a part of Alexandra’s blog and online platform called POD.DRALAND, which is dedicated to women-hosted podcasts. She believes we all need to listen to women more and that podcasting is the perfect space to do so.
