This week on Eat Your Words, host Cathy Erway is discussing women in food media with two members of the Heritage Radio Network family, Leiti Hsu, host of WORD OF MOUTH and Mary Izett, co-host of Fuhmentaboudit!. The group chats about the lack of women in the food industry and the idea of the glass ceiling for women in the industry. Leiti shares her thoughts on the matter in the context of booking guests for her show, while Mary relates with her experiences in the beer world. After the break, Cathy, Leiti, and Mary comment on their pet peeves in the food industry, such as sexist beer labels, the Skinny Girl brand of products, and celebrity women coming out with cookbooks though they have no real connection with the food. Tune in to see what these ladies are looking forward to in the future and how they see the industry changing for the better. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
“I would like women to feel more welcomed in the home-brewing and beer community, period.”
—Mary Izett on Eat Your Words
“I am excited to see more women apologize less and seeing women cut the word ‘trying’ from their vocabulary.”
—Leiti Hsu on Eat Your Words
