Welcome to Being a Woman… For Men. A show where a guy, me, Ethan Banville, talks to women about obstacles they’ve faced in their lives and careers just for being women.
Don’t worry, dudes and bros, this show isn’t a bunch of angry people screaming into a microphone. It’s a casual, funny and informative hour where I talk with women from all walks of life about their amazing journeys, what they go through as women in this world and how they’ve risen above it all to kick ass in what they do. Writers, creators, teachers, lawyers, lingerie makers, athletes… we’ve got a diverse guest list and all the conversations are filled with life experiences that women don’t normally share with men. That’s right, we’ve got the secrets! We’ve got the keys to understanding! The keys to forming stronger peer relationships with the opposite sex! And ladies, we’ve got amazing guests with relatable stories that you’ll love, too! You are not alone!
Now I know there are some confused people reading this, wondering why a guy is doing this podcast, so I’ll explain. I’m a television writer/producer by trade, and when I ran my first show there were some incidents on set with women as the victims. As the boss, I was upset when these incidents happened on my set. I loved my crew and I didn’t want anyone to feel anything but happy at work. When the other women on set saw I had their back, they began sharing their own stories with me and I was shocked. How the heck had I never heard these stories from women in my life? Now that I had, I wanted to hear more of what it’s like being a woman in a man’s world, so I started this podcast.
So, subscribe, download and join me every week for more inspiring conversations with women about their lives, their journeys and what they go through every day just for Being A Woman… For Men.
