The parents' guide to what's in this podcast.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Girls Make Beats Podcast features young female DJs who discuss music, school, creativity, mental health, current events, racial inequality and more. Discussions are relatable the and girls share their passions, likes and dislikes, and different opinions in a positive, safe space. Each episode stands alone and gives girls from diverse background. Although "Make Beats," is in the title, girls do not teach listeners how to produce music; instead, DJ hosts invite a guest female DJ to sample a track each episode. Some heavier topics are discussed, like police brutality, racism, and sexism. The podcast is fueled by female empowerment and is dedicated to giving girls of all backgrounds an amplified voice. A great podcast for older kids, tweens and teens to listen to on their own, with friends and with family members.

What’s It About?
GIRLS MAKE BEATS PODCAST highlights voices of young female DJs and aspiring DJs. Hosts are girls of all ages who are part of the Girls Make Beats non-profit organization that strives to empower girls to follow their dreams of becoming future DJs, music producers and engineers, in an industry that is still male dominated. Tween and teen hosts discuss topics that are relevant to their lives and interests which includes heavier topics like the gender gap, police brutality, and mental health, while also incorporating fun topics like new music and pop culture. Episodes stand alone and are in a talk-show format, allowing female DJs to voice their opinions, share their life experiences, and invite other female DJs to share their music.
Is It Any Good?
Uplifting, relatable and empowering to girls and women alike, this podcast amplifies the voice of creative and passionate girls who have a love for music and aren't afraid to speak their minds. Girls Make Beats Podcast features hosts of various ages and backgrounds who lead discussions in a talk show format. Episodes touch on a range of topics that are relevant to tweens and teens (gender gap, mental health, climate change, racial inequality) and to future "girl bosses" (entrepreneurship, self-empowerment, music production) of the world.
Although the podcast is geared toward tween and teenage girls, adults and listeners of all identities gain exposure to the lives and opinions of girls from diverse backgrounds who have differing opinions. Ultimately, the female hosts bond through their shared interest in music production and their involvement with the Girls Make Beats non-profit organization. Hosts create a safe and supportive space for other girls to feel heard and understood. The audio can sometimes sound a bit muffled since each girl is recording from different places, but what lacks in audio quality is made up for in content and authenticity.
