The Consequence Podcast Network is very pleased to announce the newest addition to our roster of shows: Beyond the Boys Club, a biweekly interview series launching Tuesday, October 17th. Listen to the preview trailer above.
For nearly five years, journalist, radio host, and musician Anne Erickson has put the spotlight on women making their mark on the music industry with her “Beyond the Boys Club” column on Consequence. Now, Erickson is taking the series to the world of audio, bringing the same inspiring and enlightening conversations with some of music’s biggest names to podcast platforms everywhere.
Over the years, Erickson has spoken with the likes of Evanescence’s Amy Lee, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen, Willow Smith, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, and more, with discussions seeking to celebrate these talented artists while illuminating readers on their triumphs, obstacles, and lessons learned from years in the music industry. With the Beyond the Boys Club podcast, Erickson will continue to bust down the doors of traditionally male-dominated spaces in music by welcoming women and nonbinary artists from across all genres.
Launching October 17th, the initial episodes of the podcast will feature deep-diving conversations with artists such as Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation), Nita Strauss, Sophie Lloyd, and more, as Erickson gains insights into their creative journeys, the inside scoops on their latest projects, and their unique perspectives on the music industry at large.
“I’m thrilled to work with the Consequence staff to continue to highlight these incredible stories making waves in music today,” Erickson says. “Expect both an informative and entertaining show!”
In addition to her writing work with Consequence, Erickson is a Detroit-based radio host and journalist who serves as the lead vocalist and songwriter in Upon Wings, founder of Audio Ink Radio, and more.
“Anne Erickson launched her ‘Beyond the Boys Club’ column on Consequence in early 2019, and it has been an engaging and vital feature ever since,” says Spencer Kaufman, Managing Editor at Heavy Consequence. “Now, after roughly 50 thought-provoking interviews with prominent women in the music world, we’re excited for her to take BTBC from the written word to the microphone as part of the Consequence Podcast Network.”
Beyond the Boys Club joins The Spark Parade, The Opus, Kyle Meredith With…, The What Podcast, Stanning BTS, Going There with Dr. Mike, Modern Drummer, and The Story Behind the Song as the latest addition to the Consequence Podcast Network’s growing roster of podcasts. Find all our shows here.
