Empower Her Voice is an organisation working to facilitate the empowerment of women and is currently working under two strands. First, they organise talks and discussions in a variety of cities to give women a platform, enabling them to be better heard when they speak about topics close to their hearts. Second, they fundraise for schools and women's centres across the world to to provide physical resources, set up scholarship schemes and establish extra-curricular programmes.

PAST SEVEN SEAS
A weekly journey abroad, to a different country each week, exploring foreign culture through ~mysterious~ historical anecdotes, literature and music from each place.
NEAR LIFE EXPERIENCES
Concepts untainted by sound or sight, just rolling about shutting ideas down before they even get a chance to start. Thoughts are little seeds underground which need sunlight, let them breath. Water your mind, cultivate! Join me at 2359 on Sunday nights for the motivation and thoughtfulness you know you need for the week ahead.
THE WEEKLY REVIEW
There are so many things in this world. Sometimes, it can be difficult to judge if they’re any good. More movies than could ever be watched. Enough music to last a lifetime. And so, so many chip vans. How can a busy student ever find out what’s worthwhile, and what’s not? Well, there are resources like Amazon, TripAdvisor, and apparently Snapchat too now. (Idk either)
But what if they want a different view? A totally biased perspective, offering little information of use? One that’s told by a couple of people with little expertise, but much banter. A review that doesn’t tell you whether to buy something, or whether the music is good, but rather, one which produces entertaining anecdotes, and uses the lit-ometer (patent pending).
If this sounds good to you – or if you need help reviewing whether or not it is – then why not tune in? It’s available live every Saturday at 7-8pm, at Oxide Radio, or can be listened to later as a podcast if you miss it!
MY CHOSEN TOPIC IS...
A show that changes every week giving students the chance to talk about any topic and demonstrating the variety of topics available at Oxford. If you'd like to be on the show - get in touch!
Musings From Abroad
Musings from an American about her experience abroad: the highs, the lows, the cultural differences, new discoveries and more
This be the verse
Welcome to This Be The Verse, bringing you our favourite poems, suitably nerdy discussion of said poems, interviews with poets, YOUR SUBMISSIONS (!) and maybe even some poetry news. With a rotating group of presenters, every episode promises a slightly different flavour and possible eclecticism.
Join Christian Bell and Isobel Moseley as they talk to often-overlooked or under-represented people from all over the City of Dreaming Spires about their views on and experiences of the city we call home for a couple of years.
