As broadcaster Jamz Supernova celebrates 10 years working in radio, she’s also launched a successful podcast that digs deep into the experiences that have shaped her personally and professionally.
Each week in the podcast DIY Handbook, the 6 Music and 1Xtra host talks to a guest who has inspired her, gone through similar situations, or has reached an end goal.
Topics covered include diversity, personal trauma, owning your ideas, building a team, positive work relationships and more.
Guests so far include Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson, DJ and producer Toddla T, fitness entrepreneur Ciara Madden, Jorja Smith’s manager Zubin Irani and journalist, broadcaster and AI pioneer Georgia Lewis Anderson.
Also lined-up as guests are creative all-star and entrepreneur Keturah Cummings joining Jamz to chat about Work Friends Becoming Real, presenter, broadcaster and cancer survivor Lauren Mahon, who opens up about When Life Comes At You Fast and for the final episode, the presenting legend June Sarpong discusses Why Diversity Matters.
June opens up about the struggles she has faced throughout her career relating to her identity as a Black-British women from a working-class background – she discusses rejection, avoiding being defined by her job, and gives tangible advice on how we can all play a role in creating a more diverse workforce.
Speaking on the DIY Handbook, Jamz Supernova says: “Through a collection of conversations and real-life anecdotes with a range of brilliant business and creative minds, I take the lessons I’ve learned and dissect that experience with people I admire.
“In a world that praises perfection and overnight success, we’ll aim to be painfully honest, personal & practical! Welcome to my DIY Handbook.”
