The reporter behind the podcast, Ruby Jones, said RGT that even though she knew there were problems, barriers and illegal activity in the music industry, she didn’t realize how bad it would be.
âThe more I talked to people I spoke to, the more I realized that this stuff was pretty ingrained in the music industry. It was rampant. There were so many stories. I was surprised at how many stories there were. And I was also surprised at how much it seemed like an open secret in the industry – this kind of behavior, how it had been tolerated for a very long time, âshe said.
Jones said she also spent a lot of time thinking about who could and who should listen Everyone knows.
âI think what’s likely to happen is that a lot of women will listen to it, because I think a lot of what we’re talking about are experiences that women will feel incredibly familiar with and recognize a lotâ¦ He there is a spectrum of things that happen in the workplace that happen to Australian women, and I want to explore that. But I really hope men will listen to it too. That’s my goal. I think anyone cares about equality should really listen to it.

Schwartz Media’s audio manager Osman Faruqi noted that part of the frustration that comes with reporting about these issues is when they only reach people who already know what’s going on.
“I have no doubt that women who watch this series will have chills down their spines and identify with so many parts of it,” he said.
“But there’s a part of me that’s frustrated that these kinds of stories don’t seem to resonate with men so much, so obviously there’s a big part of us creating this in the sense that we wanted to go beyond it.” usual suspects. We want this to go as far as possible.
Faruqi noted that Jones had been working on the story for months, before many of the recent actions and changes we’ve seen unfold in the public domain were revealed.
This, he said, showed that his instinct and appetite for history was there, but also that the industry was ready and eager to change.
âI think sometimes people who are really close to something don’t understand how important it is until they talk to other people and realize that, ‘Oh, wow, there is actually dozens of us who have had those experiences. âAnd you don’t always know that, and I think the surprising element was maybe justâ¦ how many people have had similar experiences and couldn’t – never found the opportunity or the encouragement to talk about it.
