The Ladder is a new podcast from Intern seeking to investigate and demystify the world of work in the creative industries.

In our two-part pilot, host Alec Dudson sets out to better understand the gender pay gap. The investigation was inspired by the feature 'Mind the Gap' written by Ruby Goss and so, it's with Ruby that the our journey begins.

You can find our interviewees here: Ruby Goss, Pip Jamieson, Abraham Asefaw, Madeline Grant, Imriel Morgan, Kirstie O’Mahony, Ellen Ling and Melanie Levick-Parkin.

The Ladder is produced by Ben Ovington and Fuchsia Summerfield. It is mastered and soundtracked by Calvin Lanz. Recorded and mixed at University of Salford, we're indebted to the brilliant Simon Connor for helping to assemble our wonderful young team of audio experts.
