In celebration of International Women's Day, this cis-gendered white Gen Xer dude has selected a few women in podcasting who you need to know more about.

Mur Lafferty was one of the first people I collaborated with in podcasting. She is the editor of Escape Pod, the long-running science fiction podcast magazine, and the also long-running podcast, I Should Be Writing.

Susan Schwartz was the first client my frim took on whom I didn’t personally know. She is the host of the drinks-industry podcast, Lush Life, which my firm helps produce.

Allie Press makes sure things run smoothly at Simpler Media and Podcast Pontifications. She’s an actor on screen and stage, and you should buy her a coffee today instead of me because she’s amazing and a big reason why this podcast exists.

Sam Walker is—and I’m not exaggerating in the slightest—evolving Simpler Media into a world-class production company. She produces a slate of award-winning podcasts, including her own Desert Diaries.

Steph Colbourn and I mentor each other for an hour every other week. She’s doing some truly inspiring work and providing loads of opportunities to the queer women and non-binary people at Edit Audio, a global, full-service podcast production company.

Mai Ling Chan and I are looking forward to re-starting the PHX Podcast Club, currently on a quasi-hiatus because COVID. She’s a Speech-Language Pathologist and the host of the podcast, Xceptional Leaders.

Leslie D Joyce is passionate about the fiction podcast space, with some great ideas I really want to see come to fruition. She’s publishing Fiction Podcast Share, a weekly newsletter currently comprised of a list of share-worthy fiction podcasts and audio dramas, and is the brains behind FictionCasters, an in-progress effort to make listening to fiction podcasts better.

Finally, thanks to Suzy Buttress and Betty Dannewitz, regular watchers of the live taping of Podcast Pontifications on LinkedIn Live. Suzy hosts The Casual Birder, and Betty hosts If You Ask Betty, covering development topics aimed at learning professionals.

And that’s just scratching the surface. There are many, many more amazing women in podcasting I’m truly grateful to have met over the years. Thank you all for your friendship, here’s to the next chapter in podcasting, and happy International Women’s Day!
