Are women in podcasting overlooked? In every industry, the disparity in representation for women only grows when you view the gender gap through a multicultural lens
I was invited to be part of the Clubhouse panel hosted by BBE London Podcast Agency – An agency that helps you to create, grow and monetize your podcast using their free podcast guides and tailored 1-to-1 support.
In this session wee discussed podcasting challenges, how to overcome imposter syndrome, monetization strategies and learned many things like there was a study that shows that lower-pitch voices are synonymous with power hence male podcasters are more popular.
