Jeannie Yandel

Jeannie Yandel has produced nearly every show out of KUOW, and has won local and national awards for her reporting and interviewing. Now she’s KUOW’s Special Projects Editor, and she created and co-hosts Battle Tactics For Your Sexist Workplace, a podcast from KUOW that knows two things are true. One, every workplace is sexist, even if it’s not visible, and even if you work for yourself. And two, there are practical actions we can all take to fight back. In each episode, Jeannie and co-host Eula Scott Bynoe take deep, evidence-based looks at facets of modern workplace sexism, from gender wage gaps to office housework to imposter syndrome, and provide listeners with specific, tested, do-able tactics to fight for ourselves and our coworkers. The podcast has been featured on NPR, in Quartz and in The Washington Post, and listeners at organizations from NOAA to the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees to Microsoft have used the podcast to help address workplace issues. High school teachers and college professors have used the podcast as a teaching tool, and Jeannie and Eula have presented about the podcast at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the University of Washington, the Society for Neuroscience, Seattle University, and the Future For Us summit.

Outside work, Jeannie ran and emceed Seattle’s first and longest-running first-person live storytelling series, and hosts Seattle’s beloved adolescent diary-reading show, Salon of Shame. She also loses arguments daily to her terrifyingly smart, stubborn 7-year old daughter.
