  5. Pro-Voice

    Arabella Watkiss and Lauren Topping

    This show will predominantly focus on feminism/equal rights and deal with a different women's issue/equal rights issue every week. For example, one week we may discuss the crazy cat lady phenomenon and another might discuss the "feminism is extreme" assumption. We are hoping to incorporate issues that women face around the world also. All kinds of genres of music will be played, not necessarily relating to the topic for the week but just music that we want to share with listeners.

    I'm a huge fan of all telly, but I am a conoisseur of reality television - X Factor, I'm a Celeb, the Apprentice; I love it all! From Honey G to that guy who called himself a shark on The Apprentice, reality telly is a key part of pop culture in 2017. So like it or not, I thought I'd devote an hour to chatting the best telly of the week with special guests, and of course playing all the best pop music of the moment!
