The Making of...

The Making of...

By The Female Lead

What are the moments that shape us? In this podcast from The Female Lead, brilliant women talk about the key moments that have made them who they are. From massive landmarks to simple everyday inspiration - these are the plot points that have steered their stories. We talk about life-changing opportunities, pivotal relationships, crushing disappointments, turning points and words of wisdom that have stuck with them. Each woman has chosen a list of moments herself. Some decisive, some accidental, some lucky, but all show us just how rambling our routes in life can be and all helped make the woman who she is today. This is the first podcast from The Female Lead, a charity founded by Edwina Dunn exploring the factors that limit women’s success and fulfilment. By listening to women and understanding them through research and data we aim to influence businesses and governments in order to drive real change. The Female Lead is passionate about telling women’s stories and that’s what this podcast is all about! The show is hosted by Bea Appleby, Editor of The Female Lead and author of What Is Feminism? Why Do we need it? On radio Bea has been a regular contributor to The Emma Barnett Show on BBC5 Live and BBC Late Night Woman’s Hour.

S2 Ep7: The Making of Ruby Bridges - The Civil Rights Movement and The Moment A 6-year-old changed the world

Our very special guest this week is Ruby Bridges who changed the world forever at just six years old. In 1960 Ruby was the first black child to go to an integrated school in the American South. This moment has become an iconic symbol of the civil rights movement and changed her life forever. Books have been written about her, movies made about her and the artist Norman Rockwell painted the moment of her first day at school - a work of art that Barack Obama moved into the White House during his precedency. Ruby and I talked about her story, how she became an activist, the horrific racism she faced and how she feels about her place in history. We were so lucky to have this conversation and I hope it means as much to you as it did to us. Ruby’s memoir This Is Your Time is released in the UK this month.  *** Born on September 8, 1954, Ruby Bridges was the oldest of five children and at two years old, her parents moved their family to New Orleans, Louisiana in search of better work opportunities. Ruby’s birth year coincided with the US Supreme Court’s landmark ruling, which ended racial segregation in public schools. But southern states continued to resist integration, and in 1959, Ruby attended a segregated New Orleans kindergarten.  A year later Louisiana was forced to desegregate. The school district created entrance exams for African American students to see whether they could compete academically at the all-white school. Ruby and five other students passed the exam. On November 14 1960 Ruby and her mother were escorted by four federal marshals to the school and they escorted her every day that year. She walked past crowds screaming slurs at her - someone even held a black baby doll in a coffin. She spent her first day in the principal’s office due to the chaos created as angry white parents pulled their children from school. Some parents withdrew their children permanently.  Over time, other African American students enrolled and Ruby graduated from a desegregated high school, became a travel agent, married and had four sons.  Ruby has been a lifelong activist for racial equality and in1999 she established The Ruby Bridges Foundation to promote tolerance and create change through education.  *** The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby.

S1 Ep8: The Making of Mel Giedroyc - The Great British Bake Off, Female Friendship and The Loneliness of Being a New Mum

Welcome to the final episode of this series of The Making Of... from The Female Lead.  Our guest this week is the comedian, actor, writer and national treasure Mel Giedroyc! This was our first ever conversation with Mel, but it feels like talking to an old friend because she is so relaxed and funny and loves a chat. She is also packed full of wisdom - just as a national treasure should be. Best known as part of the Mel and Sue double act, she started out doing live sketch comedy, then moved into acting and presenting, culminating in seven years hosting the phenomenal Great British Bake Off. Famous for their unique style of gentle but irreverent humour, Mel and Sue set the tone for what has become one of Britain's best-loved shows.  As well as presenting, acting and everything else, Mel has also written two books on motherhood and now her first novel The Best Things, which is out in the new year.  Mel shared a great list of moments that have made her, ranging from her first “road to Damascus moment” in the theatre and up to losing her house in her 40s. We also talked about the loneliness of being a new mum, female friendship and how she managed seven years of eating loads of cake. The interview was recorded over zoom, at the height of lockdown, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.  Although this is the last episode, we will be back soon with a new series of brilliant women in the new year.  * Mel Giedroyc grew up in Leatherhead as the youngest of four children,  she went to Cambridge University where she met Sue Perkins and they formed a double act which was shortlisted for the Best Newcomers Award at the Edinburgh Festival. They built a long-standing professional relationship including hosting Light Lunch and then Late Lunch on Channel Four. Mel & Sue are best known these days for presenting The Great British Bake Off. In September 2016, Love Productions switched the contract to televise The Great British Bake Off from the BBC to Channel Four. Both Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc stepped down as hosts of the show after seven years. In her career, Mel has worked on numerous TV shows and radio shows, as well as on stage - most recently in Steven Sondheim’s Company in the West End and Much Ado About Nothing at the Rose Theatre.  Mel has always loved writing and has published two books about motherhood  From Here to Maternity: One Mother of a Journey and Going Ga-Ga: Is there life after birth? In 2021 her first novel The Best Things will be released. * The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby and is edited by Lauren Lind.

We also covered how to deal with trolls, how to not be boring and cancel culture.   The interview was recorded over zoom, during lockdown, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.  * Mary Beard is one of Britain’s best-known classicists, Professor at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Newnham College.

S1 Ep6: The Making of Bobbi Brown - Makeup, Business & Motherhood

Welcome to the 6th episode of The Making Of... from The Female Lead.  Our guest this week is the legendary make-up artist, entrepreneur and founder of the iconic Bobbi Brown cosmetics. It’s the one and only Bobbi Brown herself! Bobbi started out as a make-up artist and then, through a chance conversation with a chemist, created a few simple lipsticks that evolved into a global beauty empire. Since leaving her billion-dollar company in 2016, she has launched Beauty Evolution and finished her 9th book, ‘Beauty from The Inside Out’.  But despite her incredible story of glamour and success, Bobbi could not be more down to earth, easy-going and funny. We talked about not feeling beautiful, how to start a business, and the stressful moments working mothers deal with every day (even big-time beauty moguls) like racing home to deal with your child’s fever - Bobbi has been there. We recorded the interview over zoom, during lockdown, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.  * Bobbi Brown grew up in Chicago and graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a self-created degree in theatrical makeup and photography. After that, she moved to New York to work as a professional make-up artist. During this time she became known for a totally new style which was all about natural tones, which was very different to the popular look at that time in the late 1980s. In 1991 she launched the brand Bobbi Brown Essentials, which was a phenomenal success resulting in Estée Lauder buying the company in 1995, and keeping Bobbi on until she stepped down in 2016. Since leaving Bobbi has started a new lifestyle brand, Beauty Evolution, and continued to write books, making her a New York Times bestselling author as well as all of her other accolades.  Bobbi’s style of make up has been hugely influential in the beauty industry - she genuinely revolutionised the world of make-up and her impact lives on forever. * The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby and is edited by Lauren Lind.

Welcome to the fourth episode of The Making Of... from The Female Lead.  Our guest this week is the Chief International Anchor of CNN, Christiane Amanpour. To say that Christiane is a powerhouse is an understatement - she has covered every major war zone, interviewed the world’s most powerful leaders and asked hundreds of difficult questions in the toughest situations. We asked Christiane to choose six key life moments that have made her who she is today and her list is as formidable as you might imagine with some great revelations including her work as a pub cleaner and the time a political leader slammed the phone down on her, live on TV.  Our conversation didn’t just cover Christiane’s incredible life. This episode was recorded in June 2020,  just after George Floyd’s death, and so we spent the first part talking about the BLM protests happening around the world and Christiane gave her candid view on how journalists should deal with the question of impartiality during these important times. We recorded the interview over zoom, at the height of lockdown, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.  * Christiane Amanpour is CNN's chief international anchor of the network's award-winning, flagship global affairs program "Amanpour," which also airs on PBS in the United States. Beginning in 1983 as an entry-level assistant on the international assignment desk at CNN's headquarters in Atlanta, Amanpour rose through the organisation becoming a reporter at the New York bureau, and later, the network's leading international correspondent. Amanpour's fearless and uncompromising approach made her popular with audiences, and a force to be reckoned with by global influencers -- in 1996, Newsweek said that her reporting from conflict hotspots in the Gulf and the Balkans had helped make CNN 'must-see TV for world leaders' Amanpour has earned every major television journalism award including eleven News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, nine honorary degrees, has been named a CBE,  is an honorary citizen of Sarajevo and a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Freedom of the Press and the Safety of Journalists. * The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby and is edited by Lauren Lind.

We love Yomi’s work and were so excited to interview her and capture her infectious energy, honesty and humour.  As always, she chose six key life moments that have made her who she is today. The list she came up with is a great story which starts with her deciding not to care about looks at the age of 15 and comes full circle to giving up on hair - listen and you’ll see what we mean! We also touched on the big subjects of race, class, and mental health, but somehow there’s a lot of laughs too. The episode was recorded during lockdown, over zoom, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.
