Speaking Truth & POWA: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Lou Mclean & MIRI...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to musicians Lou Mclean and MIRI about their commissions from, and collaborations with, POWA (Protection Of Women In The Arts) - the singles 'Good Girls' and 'Morality' respectively.

The two talk about their lives in music, working with POWA and the support (practical and otherwise) which they offer, the joys of collaboration, the importance of sharing stories, feeling free to write with honesty, and how the most personal lyrics often resonate with other people the most.

It's an illuminating and revealing conversation which illustrates the need for organisations such as POWA.

To find out more about POWA, the work they do, and how you can support them, go to
