Mamamia launches podcast for Indigenous women

Women’s media network Mamamia has launched its latest podcast, Tiddas 4 Tiddas, aimed at Indigenous women and hosted by Marlee Silva.

The announcement:

Mamamia is proud to announce the launch of its newest podcast, Tiddas 4 Tiddas, an initiative founded by Marlee Silva to empower young black women to know their worth and what they’re capable of.

Tidda means sister and the new podcast series, launched in synch with NAIDOC week and in brand partnership with Belong, will bring to life the stories of Indigenous women who are working to change the world, one day at a time. Actress Leah Purcell, activist Dr June Oscar, and author Tara June Winch are some of the inspiring women who will be interviewed by Marlee, who hosts the show.

Mia Freedman, Co-Founder and Creative Chief at Mamamia, said: “We are honoured to be able to support and collaborate with Marlee, and with Tiddas4Tiddas’ outstanding work with Indigenous women. Our purpose is about making the world a better place for women and girls, and this podcast is a crucial part of that, helping to amplify the voices of our first nation’s people.”

Marlee Silva said: “It is an incredible honour to be able to capture these stories and share them with such a broad audience. For me, the path toward reconciliation and a brighter Australia for all requires the other 97% of the population who aren’t Indigenous, to get behind us, celebrate our stories and care about our issues as their own. This is a chance to learn, to grow and to walk together.”

Tiddas 4 Tiddas drops every Sunday, and it will be a returning series for Mamamia.

The Mamamia team collaborating with Marlee to make the show consists of Head of Podcasts, Rachel Corbett, Managing Producer of Podcasts, Elissa Ratliff and Podcast Producer Amelia Navascues.

Mamamia Media Group is home to the world’s largest women’s podcast network, with more than 64 million downloads to date and 24 female hosts.
