Island of Discarded Women

A LIVE Show & Podcast created by veteran radio actor Sue Scott.

The show is recorded in a cool dinner club setting and then released a few weeks later as a podcast episode!

On the Island of Discarded Women, we’re all about speaking up, speaking out and amplifying women’s voices through personal storytelling, social commentary, original music, and inspiring guest conversations.  

Each show, Sue is joined by a diverse, all-female cast of talented actor/storytellers, passionate singer/songwriters and empowering special guests for “the conversation.” Past special guests have included Civil Rights leaders, Transgender trailblazers, Women’s Rights activists, Award-winning Authors, veteran Journalists and many more!

An Evening of Powerful Stories & Passionate Conversation + Dinner & Drinks!

Read the feature on Sue Scott’s “Island of Discarded Women” at the Star Tribune.


"...I left that show charged to embrace my own challenges like those islander performers did! To advocate for greater sisterhood and promote change as a collective voice ...To survive those waves that knock us down and to do better then tread in the waters of tolerance. To make effective big splashes in our world, ...now!"
