The Pay Check
It’s a big, expensive, global mystery. Why do women still make less money—a lot less—than men? In the US, the average woman makes 80 cents to every dollar a man makes. The Pay Check is an in-depth investigation into what that 20 percent difference looks like. In this miniseries we show you how the gender pay gap plays out in real life. We hear from Lilly Ledbetter, Mo’Nique, and a lot of other women who weren’t happy to be paid less. We find out what happens when a whole country tries to tackle the pay gap. And we see how some women are taking things into their own hands.

Ugh, whoever put this podcast together did not think about the audience and their wants. The ads are not only irrelevant, they are jarring and way louder than the content. So annoying, detracts from an otherwise smart and interesting podcast.

My first-ever foray into podcasts was through this production. Your team does an amazing job about making a complicated topic very accessible and inspiring to listen to. As a young woman without children yet, I have a lot to think about, and I hope you continue this podcast.

The Pay Check is back with a bonus episode on gender equality in women’s soccer. A few months ago, the US women’s soccer team filed a pay discrimination lawsuit alleging that they do not get equal pay for equal work. The US women’s team is far more successful, by many metrics, than the men’s...
