Welcome to What Women Want, powered by Ford, a series of 30-minute podcasts created by women, for women. The idea for this series is based on the unique and important point-of-view that women have on automotive topics such as safety, maintenance and technology.
Three bloggers were given the opportunity to chat with Ford experts on these topics, and we’ll be airing one per week. When the interview is ready, a BlogTalk Radio player will be visible below. Click on it to listen the conversation between the blogger and the Ford expert.
Bookmark this page (and share it with your friends), so you can come back each week to hear the latest interview. You’ll be able to listen to each conversation when it posts, or any time after.
