About


 

The Broad Experience is brought to you by Ashley Milne-Tyte, a British-born writer and public radio reporter based in New York. I'm also a teacher and podcast consultant.

I started The Broad Experience a few years ago while studying on CUNY's Entrepreneurial Journalism Program.

Here's what people are saying about the show:

Unsentimental and honest, it somehow leaves listeners, male or female, bolstered and positive.
— Miranda Sawyer, The Guardian
The Broad Experience provides a great wealth of women’s successes, failures, and advice on how to navigate the workplace and its constraints.
— Dayna Evans, Gawker
Caught Ashley on Planet Money and sought out this terrific show. Have been binging on past episodes for several days and gotta say this is one of the most interesting and insightful podcasts out there.
— iTunes review
It’s not often that a podcast will want to make you change your own behavior and the behavior of those around you. The Broad Experience does just that. Ashley reports...with humor, intelligence and thoughtfulness.

The Broad Experience is available on iTunes, AcastSoundCloud, Stitcher and TuneIn. It has aired on WLRN, Miami's public radio station, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Wisconsin Public Radio and the Women's International News Gathering Service.

Here's why I started the show: We all define success differently, and having a sane, balanced existence is important to a lot of us. But many women are ambitious, yet we don't quite reach our full potential. There are many reasons why. Often they are boiled down to one thing: babies. It's more complicated - and interesting - than that. I wanted to bring some nuance to this topic.

About the name: non-Americans may not know that 'broad' is decades-old slang for 'woman' in US English. I wanted the name to be fun and distinctive. We discuss important topics here, but I don't take myself too seriously.

If you have feedback about the show, questions, story ideas, etc., please get in touch with me.
