Behind the Mic: Celebrating the Women of Evergreen and Their Impact

Throughout the year, we work hard to lift up a myriad of individuals who contribute to our network and content—be they hosts, guests, producers, or more. As our network grows, so does that group of individuals to honor. Evergreen's remarkable growth in recent years reflects our steadfast determination. Rooted in high production values and artistic integrity, our woman-owned enterprise remains poised for ongoing expansion. This impressive movement undoubtedly comes with hours and hearts poured into our work. While much of it is a labor of love, it's crucial to acknowledge that this effort, often unnoticed, is not unappreciated.

So for this year, for Women’s History Month, we would like to celebrate the women of Evergreen Podcasts. And as we do, we also acknowledge the broader team's efforts. Here's a glimpse into some of the faces behind our content:
