New podcast sharing Stories of Strength from women across Rochdale

Published date: 
Tuesday, 8th March 2022

Stories of Strength is a podcast sharing 100 stories told by women from across Rochdale Borough. These tales of overcoming adversity will include stories about friends and family, migration, motherhood, relationships, work and women’s health and wellbeing.

Each episode is designed around the important notion that ‘you are not alone’. Like sitting down for a brew with a friend, the aim is for listeners to feel more confident, inspired, empowered, and find strength after each listen.

The podcast will share relatable, experience-led guidance through the stories, signposting to support and including trigger warnings where necessary, while each episode ends on a positive note.

Stories of Strength is for women and nonbinary people from across the Rochdale region, especially those in our community who are looking for relatable and inspiring stories. Multi-language in parts, the stories and contributors will reflect our diverse region.

The podcast will launch with a trailer for International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March, with the full series to begin on Tuesday 22 March. Stories of Strength will be available on all podcast players like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, and can be heard on smart speakers too. Listen and subscribe at this link.

Stories of Strength is a podcast commissioned by Action Together. It’s being made with partners from across Rochdale including Cartwheel Arts, Soul Sisters, Ukeff, Rochdale Mind, Women’s Welfare Association, Rochdale Connection Trust and SPLW. It’s produced as a result of training delivered by MIC media.
