When leading media consultant Aradhna Tayal is feeling that ever-present voice of imposter syndrome (oh yes, it affects her too despite having 12 years at the BBC under her belt), you know what she does? She gets out her CV, looks at her achievements and says to herself, "I am AWESOME!". What a tactic! In this episode, Aradhna and I talk about diversifying the skill set of tech teams, the way that networking should work, and of course, what feminism has got wrong over the years right. Aradhna also delves into combating tokenism on industry panels, and how she rescued Radio TechCon, the UK’s leading radio technology conference. If you’re in production, or looking to switch careers into audio tech, Aradhna’s episode is a must-listen. She even tells me what makes a really good podcast!
