talkRADIO is launching its own version of the popular Radio 4 show Woman’s Hour, but calling it Badass Women’s Hour, every Saturday at 8pm.
Presented by journalist Harriet Minter and co-hosted by entrepreneurs Natalie Campbell and Emma Sexton, Badass Women’s Hour will feature women from fashion, music, design & business, reacting to the talking points, the station says, in a funny and entertaining way.
Harriet Minter is a journalist and broadcaster specialising in women and work. She founded and edited the Guardian’s Women in Leadership section and is now a columnist for the newspaper on women in technology. Natalie Campbell is the co-founder of A Very Good Company (AVGC), a global social innovation agency and Emma Sexton is the founder and creative director of design business Make Your Words Work and also the co-founder of Flock Global, a collaborative network for entrepreneurs.
Minter, Campbell and Sexton said: “We’re all firm friends, and feel it’s important to bring those real conversations that women have over dinner, drinks and in private out into the open in a more honest and badass way. The show will be funny, frank and fearless – just like we are, and we can’t wait to get started.”
Dennie Morris, Managing Editor for talkRADIO, said: “This show is a really exciting development for us and we’re really pleased to have Harriet, Natalie and Emma on board to bring their ideas and contacts to the station. In true talkRADIO style, the show will cover the topics that everyone’s talking about and will be a fantastic listen.”
The show starts this Saturday night.
