BroadcastHER LIVE! is our monthly podcast on the 1,000 Dreams Fund Twitch Channel. Each month, the topics and guests change, but one thing remains the same — all shows aim to empower and help the women and folks we serve achieve their goals and dreams in gaming. Our BroadcastHER Initiative was created to support women including cis women, trans women, trans feminine, and those who face disparities and discrimination in correlation to misogyny and identity.
Each year, we seek a new host for the podcast, allowing a member within our BroadcastHER Community to take the role. We had such fun with our 2019 host @MiladyConfetti, a BroadcastHER Academy recipient, and our 2020 host @LuxieGames! However, we congratulate @breadwitchery and @CallMeAzia on their position as our first ever co-hosts for 2021.
With the new year, @breadwitchery and @CallMeAzia are both accomplished women aligned folks in gaming and broadcasting — and they’ll be helping streamers reach their dreams in streaming through advice and interviews they will conduct as our hosts.
In 2021, @breadwitchery and @CallMeAzia will host a variety of shows that we will continue to update here:
