The Other Woman (Radio, Podcast)


The Other Woman is a radio show that has a home on the UK's Amazing Radio as an all-female new music playlist. Ruth Barnes presents the show and has enlisted music journalist Jude Rogers over the years to come on and wax lyrical about her favourite musical femmes. Piney Gir is a musician who has played many a session for The Other Woman and after the last one she said, 'Hey! Why don't we do a podcast?!' So this is the result. Sick of being patronised by shows 'for women' that really don't speak to any of us, we thought we'd do our own. PG enlisted her showbiz buddy Stef Schadenfreude and the rest is history. Music, culture, what's on, guests and general chit chat for discerning women (and men too)...

The Other Woman is about encouraging the girls to pick up those guitars, plug in those synths, tap that mic, and be heard. It’s the UK’s only all female playlist and that definitely gives the show a certain something.
