Macho ado about nothing

Many old-school stereotypes around masculinity have thankfully faded away, but there are some that linger on, like men shouldn’t express their emotions or are as good a parent as a woman, or they should earn more than their partner, for example. Colt puts these myths under the microscope and figures out how they can be torn down.

Discover the Macho ado about nothing podcast episode.


For someone with a disability or long term condition, the workplace can be a minefield of potential obstacles, frustrations and straight-up roadblocks to what they need to do or where they need to go. From accessibility ramps to subtitles on video content, there are a number of things that can be done to help disabled team members feel more at home.

What's in a name?

The workplace can be a difficult place to navigate for a trans person, deciding on which bathroom to use isn’t quite as straightforward as it is for cisgender colleagues, for example, not to mention fielding questions on appearance.

This episode questions the way employees can best support their trans coworkers, and their coworkers who are transitioning.

Class dismissed

In 2019, 56.5 per cent of disadvantaged young people in the UK left school without a GCSE equivalent. Compare that with the 75 per cent of employers who require a GCSE equivalent for entry level roles. And it’s not just education, nepotism is rife when it comes to internships and work experience for young people.

This episode of the podcast explores the ways to boost social mobility and break the deep-rooted cycles of class inequality.

So you want to be an ally?

A key theme that emerged from 2020’s Black Live Matter protest was the active involvement of non-Black people seeking to be allies.

"But what does being an ally really mean?", asks the episode.

This episode looks at the ways to be an ally and how to take constructive steps instead of being patronising or facetious.

Coming out at work

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, the question of whether or not to come out at work is complicated.

As of 2018, Stonewall reported that over a third of LGBTQ+ people don’t come out in their workplace for fear of discrimination.

This episode questions the ways to create a space where people can not only come out, but thrive in their environment.
