PINK PROTEST PODCAST NETWORK
Football and feminism are both huge parts of our culture and everyday lives, but rarely have they been brought together and forced to get along.
In this podcast, comedian and feminist activist Grace Campbell, and her father, that well-known guy from politics, Alastair Campbell, bring Grace’s obsession of feminism, and Alastair’s obsession of football together to create what they hope is a fun and thought provoking podcast.
Each week they’ll be joined by people from varying industries to chat football, feminism, and everything in between. The guests will vary from football (Burnley manager Sean Dyche) to feminism (countdown star Rachel Riley) to anything else in between (Ed Miliband, Kelly Holmes, and Josh Widdecombe).
*ABOUT THE HOSTS *
Grace Campbell is a comedian and activist who is fast making a name for herself as a feisty feminist stand-up. Grace is currently writing her debut solo-show to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. The show, Why I’m Never Going Into Politics, tells Grace’s story of growing up in politics and why she feels her life so far has meant she could never be a politician. As an activist, Grace co-founded the feminist, law-changing, activist collective, the Pink Protest.
Alastair Campbell is a writer, communicator and strategist best known for his role as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications. Alastair is a lifelong Burnley fan and sometimes even a pundit for Burnley FC. Alastair is still very active in politics, mainly focussing his energy on mental health causes, and trying to stop Brexit. He is very excited to be venturing into the podcast world with his daughter.
What does the F-word mean to you? Journalist and activist Scarlett Curtis interviews inspiring women about what feminism means to them, and why it matters.

Bringing Up Us is a podcast hosted by Matilda Sturridge. After falling pregnant at 21 and becoming a single mother soon after her son was born, Matilda experienced a non-traditional nosedive into being a parent. This podcast hopes to explore all the bold and beautiful ways that people's journeys evolve as they raise their families. We all know that life is never simple or straight forward so why do we put so much pressure on ourselves to be perfect parents? How do you bring up a child when you're still growing up yourself? With a host of incredible guests, Bringing Up Us hopes that by delving into peoples narratives we realise that there is no set path.
Join us every Wednesday for new episodes featuring intimate interviews with a line up of amazing women including Jessie Cave, Bryony Gordon, Natalie Lee, Emma Freud & many more!
