At WMN, we produce original, partner, and white-labeled content. Our original content — “WMN Presents” — aims to lift up underrepresented voices, through artful, thoughtful audio. We partner with like-minded organizations to tell the stories we mostly missed in school, using politics and business as a framework for individual experience.
For Future Reference
Whether at work, class, or in our relationships, women are always faced with the challenges and pressures of doing it all and often having to be the first or only one in the room. But it’s just a little easier when you’ve got someone else who’s been there, has your back and can share advice on how to tackle things.
On For Future Reference, hosts Tori Taylor and Ambar Calvillo-Rivera bring a weekly dose of balance and real talk with women who are in the same boat. We’ll dig into topics like modern-day mentorship, building authentic relationships, doing it all… or not, and what it really means to survive and thrive in this world. It’s advice and food for thought - that you can use now or just keep around for future reference.
The 43 Percent
43 percent of women who have kids leave the workforce at some point. In this series of fireside chats with inspiring women, spanning a variety of industries and experiences, host Claudia Reuter aims to share more examples than what we typically see of what's possible for women thinking through work and family decisions. A former stay-at-home mom herself, Reuter went on to be a venture-backed CEO, an executive at a >$2B company, a board director, and a Managing Director at Techstars. Here, she profiles authors, tech executives, doctors, entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms and more who share their professional journeys and advice for women grappling with work-life balance.
Every weekday for a full year, listeners can explore the trials, tragedies, and triumphs of groundbreaking women throughout history who have dramatically shaped the world around us. In each 5 minute episode, we’ll dive into the story behind one woman listeners may or may not know -- but definitely should. These diverse women from across space and time are grouped into easily accessible and engaging monthly themes like Pioneers, Creators, Villainesses, STEMinists, Warriors & Social Justice Warriors, and many more. Encyclopedia Womannica is hosted by WMN co-founder and award-winning journalist Jenny Kaplan. The bite-sized episodes pack painstakingly researched content into fun, entertaining, and addictive daily adventures.
The Brown Girls Guide to Politics
This year was historic for running for — and being elected to — office. The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Podcast is all about amplifying the voices of women who are too often forgotten in most media coverage. Host A’shanti F. Gholar leads conversations with women changing the face of politics. Episodes include the stories of being the only brown girl in the room, profiles of politicians and candidates, roundtables analyzing the news, and more!
Web of WMN
Each of us is surrounded by a rich community of connections -- we have some combination of friends, family, partners, co-workers, mentors, and more. Then each of those connections has connections too. It all forms a bustling, complicated, interconnected web. Welcome to Web of WMN, Wonder Media Network's new show that dives into the identities and relationships that form who we are as individuals and communities.
Women belong in the House
Leading up to the 2018 Midterm Elections, WMN presented its first original show, which dug into the incredible stories of the record numbers of women who ran for Congress. In the show, Jenny Kaplan guided listeners through interviews with candidates — plus experts and thought leaders — to explain why there are so few women in office, what it would mean if there were more, and how Congress would change if it looked more like the people it represents.
