We’re chuffed to bits to tell you about our latest podcast – ‘Strong Manchester Women.
The brand-new podcast tells the stories of fourteen women from across Manchester, who are making a positive difference and lasting impact in our communities. Scroll down to listen to the trailer.
Supported by Manchester City Council and The Pankhurst Trust, each episode is an inspiring conversation with the changemakers, activists and trailblazers who make Manchester and beyond a better place to live, work and play; including champion boxer Stacey Copeland, 90 year old Pride of Manchester winning Gardener Dena Murphy (left), the Deputy Leader of Bury Council Lynne Ridsdale, Manchester International Festival performing poet Nasima Begum and Trans Creative Artistic Director Kate O’Donnell.
One of the women profiled is Sarah Judge, a Councillor for Manchester City Council and Lead Member for Women. She says that the campaign and podcast are important to help celebrate everyday women,
“The women profiled in the campaign and podcast are normal women like you and me, women you may not have heard of before. With women’s rights and issues by no means solved, I hope the Strong Manchester Women campaign can inspire more women to rise up and make a difference, no matter who they are, or where they come from.”
Vic Turnbull, Top Cat at MIC Media is excited at the chance of the podcast influencing women and girls globally,
“It’s been a real pleasure to work on this, what a absolute joy to speak to these women. The power of podcasts is incredible, as audiences aren’t restricted by boundaries. The prospect of these inspiring women from Manchester influencing females across the world is amazing! ”
MIC Media fully produced this podcast- to find out exactly what that all involves, from recording to marketing – see our portfolio page here.
