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
An impeccably edited and enlightening creation.
— The Economist
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. They've often been boiled down to one thing: babies. It's more complicated - and interesting - than that. I wanted to bring some nuance to this topic.

Five years after starting the show, women and the workplace has become an international topic of conversation. What differentiates my show from everything else out there is its focus on women of different ages from all sorts of different backgrounds, who can speak to the theme of each show. As a lifetime curious person and professional journalist since 2003, I also pride myself on my interviewing skills and my audio and production capabilities. 

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.
