Episode 9: Her Name Is - The Muff Society

The MUFF Society is a group of really rad women who hold screenings of what they call 'feminist movies', which feature and include talented women onscreen and offscreen (directors, editors, producers, cinematographers, writers, production designers, and so on). The last few movies they've screened? Legally Blonde! 9 to 5! Now and Then! Learn more about them at www.muffsociety.com/about-us At the screening of 9 to 5, which is part of a new MUFF series called Reel Girl Talk, we talked to a few MUFFS, and also participated in our first panel discussion as Her Name Is. (Very exciting, and thank you again for the invitation!) Have a listen to hear about the film industry, why it's so important to champion women onscreen and offscreen, and how it's never too late to get started on a project you're super passionate about. -Emily and Jenny Find us at www.hernameispodcast.com, on Twitter at @_hernameis and on Facebook.

Episode 7: Her Name Is Jenn Woodall

It all started with Twin Peaks. Jenn Woodall was working in film as a costume designer when she decided to submit art to Damn Fine Coffee! A Twin Peaks Fan Zine in 2012. Seeing the end product was all she needed to keep going. Jenn went on to pursue her passion for illustrating and making comic books and she hasn’t looked back since. In this episode, Jenn talks to us about her Sailor Moon obsession, how a Twin Peaks zine changed her career path, and what was going through her mind when she was contemplating a second round of university. We hope you enjoy Jenn’s story! -Emily and Jenny Check out Jenn's work at jwoodall.tumblr.com! Psst: Don’t forget to rate us on iTunes! <3

Episode 6: Her Name Is Tiana Feng

Tiana Feng’s life is surrounded by music. She’s the owner, editor and photographer for Canadian music website Ride the Tempo. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Music in Performance. She works in the marketing and communications department for SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada). And finally, she’s a juror for Polaris Prize, Prism Prize, JUNO Awards and FACTOR. On top of all that, Ride the Tempo hosts live shows and she teaches piano. Phew. In this episode, Tiana talks about getting a post-post-secondary education, experiencing the all-too-familiar job-hunting nightmare that most 20-somethings currently face, taking on not-so-glamourous internships, and the feeling she gets when music brings people together. We hope you enjoy Tiana’s story! -Emily and Jenny Psst: Ride the Tempo and NeXT will be presenting a killer lineup featuring Partner, PONY, Eyeballs, Pale Lips, and Pins and Needles at the Silver Dollar for Canadi...
