Episode 6 – Amanda Miknev, The Fairy Podmother

It’s my first time interviewing a real-life fairy! I only thought they existed in, well, fairy-tales.

Amanda Miknev is The Fairy Pod Mother, and she is making the world a better, more inclusive place.

We talked politics, including a quick recap of London’s now-legendary move to the ranked ballot system. Then we got into her biggest work – The Fairy Pod Mother! She’s been featured on CBC News for her work in breaking down barriers for access to female hygiene products. Finally, we talked politics once again by looking at how politicians speak to their audience and what we can learn since the social media-i-zation of elections.

Her work as Political Manager for Councilor Josh Morgan’s campaign ensured his message connected with people at the polls, leading him to win his 2018 London Ward election. Finally, she is a Research Assistant at the University of Western Ontario.

In short, she’s an epic human being.
