About The Game Changers
We were absolutely thrilled to be commissioned to work on the launch of this podcast celebrating the trailblazers in women’s sport. We’ve just been re-commissioned for season 6!
We worked closely with host Sue Anstiss and her team throughout the planning stages of the podcast, devising the concept and structure of the season and advising on all aspects of remote recording and equipment and coaching presenter Sue Anstiss through the interview preparation and execution process. We helped craft questions and form story arcs for each epsiode.
We then edited and mixed each epsiode with the raw audio delivered to us, set up RSS feed and hosting and pushed out to all major platforms.
Fantastic. Absolutely love listening to this podcast recently listening again on my daily run. Give them a listen great guests from inspiring women.
Just keeps getting better. Really loved the last 2 episodes; Jo Tongue & Maggie Murphy; hadn’t heard an in depth interview such as this with either of them before. So very interesting.
5* podcast with 6* guests This podcast never fails, with awesome content with easy to listen delivery. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 🔥

The Game Changers
Jeanette Kwakye is former international athlete turned broadcaster.
This British sprinter was five-time British champion, Olympian and world indoor silver medallist, competing in the Olympic final of the 100 meters in Beijing 2008.
Since retiring as an athlete and becoming a journalist in 2013, Jeanette's become a regular broadcaster across the BBC, Sky Sports and Channel 5. Jeanette works across many sports, having anchored world championships and athletics, swimming and taekwondo, along with Olympic and Commonwealth Games.
In 2020, Jeanette became the first Black woman to present boxing on British TV and regularly presents the BBC Women's Football Hour show, BBC Five Live Breakfast and Fighting Talk. She's also hosting an exciting new show for Sky Sports' this autumn, bringing the British Basketball League, Men's and Women's games, to our screens.
In 2017, Jeanette wrote a children's book called Femi the Fox, which teaches the younger generations about West African culture, and in 2021, she was awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to sports and sports broadcasting.
Jeanette is incredibly open about her life as an elite track athlete – who as a youngster was sometimes a challenge to coach.
We talk everything from the issue of drugs in sport and the revealing sports kit worn by female athletes (which Jeanette loved when competing) through to her own challenges with injuries and how it felt to miss out on London 2012, having started the year as Britain’s fastest woman.
We track Jeanette’s career path to becoming a prominent sports broadcaster in a space where there were few black women, and how it feels to now be on the other side of the microphone being the first person to talk to emotional British athletes as they finish their events at major Championships.
