[Podcast] Ep25: Sexism In Post, pt2

In part 2 of this episode I continue my conversation with Kylee Wall and Siân Fever about work environments for women in post-production. This episode was inspired by a recent article by Kylee Wall on Creative Cow titled Sexism In Post. We talk about why Kylee wrote the article in the first place, lots of different studies about the gender gap in post-production, wage differences for the same jobs, and we even go as far to discuss sexual harassment and other not-so-pleasant topics.
