The Broad Experience comes to you via Ashley Milne-Tyte, a British-born writer and public radio reporter based in New York (the accent belies the fact that I'm actually half-American).

I became fascinated by the topic of women in the workplace while reporting for Marketplace, the public radio business show, and developed The Broad Experience while studying on CUNY's entrepreneurial journalism program. As well as gleaning a lot of interesting insights while researching those Marketplace stories, I have several decades' experience of being female and 20 years of experience in the workplace. I was raised to be a people pleaser and have undermined myself at work on numerous occasions.
As well as being available on iTunes and Stitcher SmartRadio, The Broad Experience airs regularly on WLRN, Miami's public radio station, and on the Women's International News Gathering Service.
About the name: non-Americans may not know that 'broad' is decades-old slang for 'woman' in US English. Looking around on the internet long after I chose it, I see it has also been associated with a certain ancient profession, and is viewed at least by some as insulting (a connotation the word has never held for me). I wanted the name to be fun and distinctive. We discuss important topics on the show, but I don't take myself too seriously.
