Welcome back to Gigs, Guitars and Gender, a podcast series about gender and the local music scenes in five cities. This episode centers on Indianapolis, a city not far from my hometown of Columbus that has an underrated but well-developed music scene.
This episode is the second in a series of six, so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post to subscribe and stay up-to-date on the rest of the project. A new episode will be published every Saturday until the end of March, when I’ll post the sixth and final podcast – a summary and debriefing of the rest of the series – on the last Saturday to coincide with the end of National Women’s History Month.
Gigs, Guitars and Gender is a podcast that aims to explore the role gender plays in five music scenes across the United States Midwest. Host Abby Jeffers travels to Detroit, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Columbus to talk to musicians in each city about their experiences with gender.
This episode is set in the music scene in Indianapolis, Indiana, and this time, Abby met with Gwynn from There Are Ghosts to chat about aspects of performance, Addison from For the Fire to talk about the confidence and stereotypes of women in rock and Katrina and Jennasen of manners, please to hear about tokenization and female-focused events.
