Welcome back to Gigs, Guitars and Gender, a podcast series about gender and the local music scenes in five cities. This is the final episode, and it’s set in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, a city that is very dear to me but also has plenty of work to do in the areas of inclusion and diversity in the music scene.
This episode is the fifth 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. The final episode will be published next Saturday, March 30, and it’ll be a summary and debriefing of the rest of the series and will coincide with the end of National Women’s History Month.
