This is what Joshua Dudley, contributing writer for Forbes.com had to say about the article on Femcanic Garage


Feature #4 - “She Saved All Her Money And Bought A GTO...Podcasting a Life-Long Love Affair with Cars.” This is the first feature in the “Leisure” category and is a “write-through” interview with Jayme Blasiman host of the Femcanic Garage podcast about women in the automotive industry. A “write-through” interview is one that doesn’t use the traditional Q and A format but instead picks and chooses quotes from the interview along with other source material to tell a story. In this case, it’s an emotionally perfect story loaded with details that encapsulate the “can do” attitude of the host and how she hopes to inspire other women in the industry.

Femcanic Garage Podcast Highlights Females in the Industry


Although it’s 2019 and many people will claim that gender equality has been achieved, the fact remains that society identifies distinct differences between females and males.
Yet, the reality is that many expectations for the “softer sex” are a construct that doesn’t quite jive with reality. This is evidenced in the automotive and collision repair industry by the constantly increasing membership levels of women-focused organizations, such as the Women’s Industry Network (WIN) and Women in Automotive (WIA), showing just how many women are actively involved in this unconventional career field.
Earlier this year, Jayme Blasiman decided that these women should be highlighted so their contributions and impact to the automotive industry can be recognized – that’s when she founded Femcanic Garage, a podcast featuring interviews with women in the automotive and racing industries. According to Blasiman, “With the Femcanic podcast, I want to give a voice to women in the automotive industry through a medium that hasn’t been explored in a professional way.”
“My hope for Femcanic Garage is that it will inspire women, young ladies, and girls to pursue the wrenching and racing trade on any level they wish. Even if they never get their hands dirty, I want to spark their curiosity and give them full permission to explore the automotive industry without the apprehension of ‘girls don’t do that,’” Blasiman expressed.

Just listening to Femcanic Garage podcast is empowering, it's an ALL female based platform, where she interviews women in all positions within the automotive industry .

I highly recommend women in our industry to reach out to Femcanic Garage and share their stories and others to go and listen to these women share amazing stories that make you reflect on your own day to day challenges! "

I wish this type of positive message was around for me to hear when I was first starting out as an auto mechanic. When I was a guest, I felt so comfortable speaking with Jayme. She made me feel so supported and safe when sharing very sensitive stories about my experiences in the automotive industry. Thanks, so much Femcanic garage for sharing my story!"

  • I had so much fun talking to Jayme about the industry and my career. It was really refreshing that she didn't shy away from subjects that might be deemed too controversial for some like, LGBT, women in the industry, and an overall lack of diversity in our industry. These conversations need to be had if we want the industry to be more inviting to other types of people.

  • I love to talk cars and I am passionate about empowering women.  Femcanic Garage gave me the opportunity to do both while recording a podcast with Jayme and it was a blast!  Less that 2% of working technicians are women, which is completely unacceptable.  By giving voice to women in the Industry, Femcanic Garage is a part of the solution and I am proud to a part of the Femcanic community!
