52. A little update…
Hello hello hello! I realise it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, so I thought I’d slide into your ears with a little update.
First things first. If you’re from the vet world and you’ve been listening to Borborygmi here – good news! It turns out mixing your genres isn’t a smart idea, so Borborygmi has now moved to its very own channel and we’ve got a new season starting next week. Just search Borborygmi: Noises From The Veterinary World wherever you get your podcasts, and you’ll find us.
And what of Smashing The Ceiling I hear you ask? When do we get to hear the stories of more amazing women with inspiring and unusual careers? Well, Season 3 will be back in 2021 – yes, I know that’s aaaaages since Season 2 finished but despite the global circumstances, it’s been a busy year with exciting consequences. Drumroll please… I’m on the verge of launching a new venture for women in podcasting, which is called The Skylark Collective. The Collective will be a membership organisation for all women in the podcasting industry, whether you’re a host, producer, editor, writer or anything in between. We’re aiming to lift the voices of our members through connection, collaboration and celebration. We’ll have monthly events based around the themes of Success, featuring conversations with women who’ve been there, done it and got the millions of downloads, Skills, allowing your to uplevel your offering and take your podcast to the next level, and Social, because if there’s one thing we’ve realised in 2020, it’s that we all need each other more than we thought. Community is queen. There’ll also be a bursary fund offered to women with great ideas that need a hand to get going, and an annual awards ceremony kicking off in September 2021 to celebrate the achievements of women in podcasting worldwide. Our website is in progress, but the socials are up and running on Insta and Twitter so do give us a follow and look out for content there!
Smashing The Ceiling will now become the official podcast of The Skylark Collective, and we’ll be showcasing more amazing women with fabulous careers…and a podcast too. So watch this space – we’ll let you know when we’re ready to roll!
