MP Jess Phillips to mark International Women’s Day with Audio Always podcast series

IWD Jess Phillips podcast

Labour MP Jess Phillips will be joined by a host of celebrities to mark International Women’s Day for a new special podcast series, produced by MediaCity’s Audio Always.

The Yours Sincerely podcast will be a daily mini-series, featuring a number of women who have “changed laws, challenged abuse and fought against prejudice”.

Phillips will be joined by guests including Love Island star and documentary presenter Zara McDermott, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi and broadcaster Ayesha Hazarika on issues from revenge porn to outdated ideas of marriage.

From Monday 7th March, the MP will also be asking women to share open letters about issues that they’re passionate about and explore issues with her guests. 

On the importance of International Women’s Day and the series, Jess Phillips said: “Speaking to women while plotting how we can change the world is how I would spend every day if I could, so recording with women who have changed laws, challenged abuse and fought against prejudice was a gift. 

“IWD is a time to celebrate brilliant women of course but also a reminder of all that there is still to fight for. Let’s crack on.”

New episodes of the Yours Sincerely podcast will be available to listen to daily from 7th March.
