Throwback Thursday – Chelsea Slater (2015 interview)

Chelsea Slater chatting to Dan for Radio MakeFest in 2015

Happy Thursday everyone, is that a thing? Well it is now I guess. It’s almost as good as Friday and it does have one advantage Friday doesn’t, that’s our regular Throwback Thursday posts. This week for your listening pleasure I have an interview recorded back in 2015 with Chelsea Slater at the first Liverpool MakeFest. Chelsea is one of the founders of Liverpool Girl Geeks, what’s that you ask? Listen to the interview and she’ll tell you.


This is a very timely post because on Monday you’ll be able to hear a fresh, up to date chat I had with Chelsea detailing all the amazing things that have happened in 3 short years. So consider this a primer. It’s quite short but a great little discussion which gets into gender politics in science and tech amongst other things. Hope you enjoy it!

Don’t forget if you like this sort of thing you can subscribe to the weekly Radio MadeFest podcast where we’ll be meeting some of the makers each week and finding out more about them. It’s fun and there’s already 3 previous episodes from the new series to enjoy.

Grab a ticket for the upcoming event on Saturday June 30th 2018 at Central Library and if you have the time also please consider volunteering to help out. We really do need your help to make it all run smoothly. Be part of the team, you don’t need a technical background or any special skills, everyone has something to offer. It’s really rewarding and we’ll be eternally grateful.

Enjoy your weekend and join us again on Monday for that new interview, it’s a good’un 🙂

Ciao ciao,
