Unboxing Women

Unboxing Women

By Unboxing Women

We are Maika and Dana from Unboxing Women and this pod is about the gender gap and how women and LGBTQ+ are marginalised in the music and entertainment industry.

It all started after we were called a bitch just for knowing what we want and being assertive about it to the men around us, so if being a knowledgeable woman makes us a bitch, then we are #SUCHABITCH and we’ll show you just what a bitch can do.

Join us as we unbox the underlying truth, discuss taboo topics and bring on guests revealing the dirty little secrets of the music business and what is really going on behind the scenes.

UW #54: Shania Twain: The Unbelievable Story Behind the Legend

Link to an interview of ABC news with Shania: https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/shania-twain-opens-difficult-childhood-heart-wrenching-divorce/story?id=13529925 If there is anything you would like us to talk about send us a DM on our Instagram instagram.com/unboxingwomen or an email to suchabitch@unboxingwomen.com Use the hashtag #SUCHABITCH to let us know about your personal experiences.

UW #53: What you didn't know about Autotune
UW #53: What you didn't know about Autotune
Who uses Autotune? Why is it frowned upon in certain genres, while it is glorified in others?  We divulge a couple of secrets well-known in the industry, but that most music fans have no clue about. We mention our Episode 25: "Vibrato in Pop Music", Episode 32: "Exploring Imposter Syndrome" and Episode 23: "Women Supporting Women - Vocal & Communication Coach Angela Durrant". This is the link to the Full 2019 Eurovision Show on their official YouTube channel where Madonna sang 'Like a Prayer' with Autotune tuned to the wrong note: https://youtu.be/Dsx4pVjUth0?t=10575 (the link will make the video start just before she comes on) This is the link to the video on Madonna's YouTube channel where they corrected her performance as best they could.  You can clearly hear extra vocals were added on the parts that they couldn't re-tune due to too much audience noise: https://youtu.be/VG3WkiL0d_U If there is anything you would like us to talk about send us a DM on our Instagram instagram.com/unboxingwomen or an email to suchabitch@unboxingwomen.com Use the hashtag #SUCHABITCH to let us know about your personal experiences.

UW #50: What do we do now?
We chat about helpless female sidekicks in movies and how Reese Witherspoon made everyone aware of the problem back in 2016, but nothing has changed much.  Still this is a question we have to ask ourselves and our female community as to how we move the needle and make people realise their internalised misogyny that is perpetuated this vicious cycle. Spoiler alert: We chat about a couple of movies where the line "What do we do now?" is uttered by the female characters and we describe scenes from 'Toy Story 3' and 'San Andreas'.   Link to the clip we play with women saying "What do we do now?" with a part of Reese's speech. Link to the full speech transcript. We also mention UW ep34 "Will acting like a man get you ahead?" where we reviewed the movie 'Alien'.

UW #47: The Adele Controversy: the Grammys go Non-Binary
UW #47: The Adele Controversy: the Grammys go Non-Binary
Adele was accused by the media of being transphobic after saying she was proud to be a female artist when the Grammys had just announced they were pulling the plug on gendered categories.  We dive into a conversation about Adele's past touring and vocal issues as well how this whole Grammys discussion came to be. !!We realised after recording this that Adele said what she said after the Brits announced they were going non-binary.  Both the Brits and the Grammys went non-binary at the same time - hence our confusion.  This doesn't impact our opinion about both matters much so we decided to keep this episode as is. References: Adele's interview about new 2021 album '30' on BBC Radio 1. Rollingstone interview about touring. Info about Grammys category change. You can also listen to episode 26 about the Grammys being membership based and their #whysomale show lineup.
