PODCAST: A Woman's Place episode one. 'Grace, Sara, and Stockholm's music tech scene'.
A Woman's Place is wherever she wants it to be. Meet twelve inspiring women who have found a place where they can fulfil their professional ambitions, where their voices are heard and where their gender is not a disadvantage.

In the first episode of this new podcast series, we meet Australian native Grace McCallum and Swede Sara Herrlin, two women working at the heart of Stockholm's music tech industry.

When Grace entered an online competition to join the ABBA Choir, she never imagined she would end up uprooting her entire life and relocating to Stockholm. She was soon taken under the wing of music industry veteran Sara, and they have gone on to form Stockholm Music City, a movement bringing together Sweden's two most dynamic industries: music and tech.

Host Samanda Ekman talks to Grace and Sara about how their extraordinary friendship started with a very, very long lunch, how to find the true value in a network and what it's like to be a woman in the traditionally male-dominated industry of music tech.
