PSNEurope introduces Women in Audio podcast
The Women in Audio series, interviewing prominent women in the industry, launches on Tuesday March 6
PSNEurope is launching its first podcast series on March 6.
The Women in Audio podcast is a series of interviews with women in a variety of roles across the industry, discussing their path to get to the prominent positions they’re in today and the ways in which the pro audio sector can become – or is becoming – a more inclusive space.
In recent years, the audio industry has launched a range of events and initiatives aimed at redressing the gender imbalance.
AIM’s recent Women in Music event had a studio-focused panel, Red Bull’s Normal Not Novelty sessions are bringing masterclasses and workshops to each and every corner of the UK, and the Audio Engineering Society is holding panel nights and debates to further the conversation around gender equality in the audio industry, in partnership with the United Nation’s HeforShe campaign.
PSNEurope editor Daniel Gumble and staff writer Tara Lepore, the series looks to highlight the experiences of some of the most prominent women in the industry while also looking at the opportunities available to those at the start of their career.
Laura Lewis Paul is the creative director behind the Bristol-based record label Saffron Records, which aims to get more women working in the music industry by running six-week, all-female, sound engineering and production ‘Saffron for Sound’ classes.
