About the podcast
Island of Discarded Women
Satire, Storytelling and Scintillating Conversation
What if there was a place inhabited by determined women who are working to reclaim their self-worth and celebrate their strengths after being dismissed or discounted by societal norms and gender biases?
There is such a place!
Mixing radio theater satire, original songs and inspiring conversations with women who share their personal stories, Island of Discarded Women delves into what it takes for us to reawaken our power after feeling tossed aside, swept under the rug or deleted.
Veteran radio actor Sue Scott, having been “put out to pasture,” has just washed up on the island. Dazed and confused, she sets out on a mission to discover what this island is all about, why all these amazing women are here and ultimately, what’s next.
Read the feature on Sue Scott’s “Island of Discarded Women” at the Star Tribune.
