After 5 glorious years, the legendary Sound Women organisation has come to an end. In this finale episode presented by patron Angie Greaves, we hear from some of the women that have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it all happen. Tune in to find out how Sound Women chair Chris Burns (Head of Group Operations for Audio & Music at BBC) got her start; why Jane Garvey (BBC Radio 4 Women's Hour) believes it is vital to have diversity across all areas of radio; and why Sue Bowerman (Blanket) and Nicky Birch (Rosina Sound), are excited about the future for women in audio. You can also expect a heartfelt interview with founder, Maria Williams, as she recounts the challenges that led her to taking action, and why she feels positive about the legacy Sound Women is leaving behind.
