Women in Vinyl have announced the launch of a groundbreaking new podcast which will have its premiere episode on Sunday, March 21st. Women in Vinyl is a blog that seeks to empower women working in the vinyl industry, support career development, and inspire girls and women to seek opportunities in the industry.
The website was launched in 2018 by Jenn D’Eugenio, the Sales and Customer Service Manager at Furnace Record Pressing, which is based in Alexandria, Virginia. Since its founding, the team has interviewed women across the globe, including record store and label owners, press operators, and radio hosts highlighting and supporting female voices in the industry.
The Women in Vinyl podcast is a discussion between D’Eugenio and her co-host Robyn Raymond, a Women in Vinyl contributor. Robyn is the owner of Red Spade Records based out of Toronto, and the only female record cutter in Canada. She cuts short run, lathe cut records and formerly worked in the QA department at Precision Record Pressing.
Together, Jenn and Robyn will share interviews from across the vinyl industry, as well as dig into all types of questions about vinyl in an effort to demystify the vinyl community. Their goal is to “support the overall knowledge base, encourage career development, and to share resources through collaboration, and diversity within the vinyl community.”
The premiere episode will feature Amanda Schutzman, Purchaser for Needle and Groove Records in Lynbrook, New York.
The Women in Vinyl podcast is produced by Black Circle Radio, and can be found on all major platforms, including Spotify, Apple, Deezer and at spreaker.com.
