Podcast: the Rachael English and Zara King interview on #HowIDidIt, with expert tips from Louise Campbell

In this fourth episode of #HowIDidIt: the Business Post’s Women in Leadership podcast series, Nadine O’Regan interviews Rachael English, author and RTE Radio 1 broadcaster, and Zara King, news correspondent with Virgin Media and podcast host, about their route into journalism and the hazards of the job

Ambition, leadership and sexism are all under discussion in the new season of the #HowIDidIt podcast series

In this era of unprecedented turmoil, with the war in Ukraine, the pandemic, climate change, inflation and soaring house prices, the appetite for news has rarely been stronger. But what’s it like for those at the coalface of news and current affairs broadcasting, reporting on it all?

In this episode of #HowIDidIt, Rachael English, co-host of Morning Ireland, and Zara King, news correspondent with Virgin Media, discuss their approach to working in two of the most high-profile positions in Irish news and current affairs broadcasting.

They also discuss journalism as a vocation, the perils of the job, and their latest projects in podcasting and fiction -- Rachael English’s new bestselling novel The Letter Home is out now, and Zara King has just launched a new podcast called The Group Chat with her Virgin Media colleagues Richard Chambers and Gavan Reilly.

Later in the episode, in our weekly expert slot, Louise Campbell of global recruitment agency Robert Walters offers tips on how to go about asking your employer for a raise. Listen at the link below, or via Apple Podcasts.
