Why Does Ahmed Ali Butt Call Male Celebrities "Excuse Me" on His Podcast?

In the world of podcasting, Ahmed Ali Butt’s podcast named ‘Excuse Me’ has made a significant impact since its inception eight months ago. With a diverse range of guests from the entertainment industry, Butt’s podcast has become a go-to destination for insightful conversations and candid humour. However, a noticeable trend has emerged, the majority of his guests are male artists, sparking curiosity about the reason behind this imbalance.

Women in Pakistan often don’t receive the needed limelight, and this trend is reflected in the podcasting industry. However, it’s essential to recognize the importance of gender diversity and inclusivity in the media. By featuring more female guests, podcasts can provide a platform for women to share their stories, opinions, and experiences, inspiring a new generation of women to aspire to similar heights.

Why is it needed?

Moreover, gender diversity in podcasting can benefit the audience in numerous ways. It provides a unique perspective, breaks stereotypes, and offers a more comprehensive understanding of the world. By featuring guests from diverse backgrounds, podcasts can foster empathy, understanding, and inclusivity.

Butt’s first guest, Tabish Hashmi, set the tone for the podcast’s comedic and engaging vibe. Since then, he has hosted an impressive array of male celebrities, including Fahad Mustafa, Mustafa Zahid, Azaan Sami, Ali Safian Wasif, Adnan Siddiqui, and Fawad Khan, among many others. While a few female celebrities like Mathira, Hania Aamir, Aima Baig, and Nadia Jamil have graced the podcast, the male-to-female ratio is strikingly disproportionate.

Here are some examples that demonstrate the importance of gender diversity and inclusivity in podcasting:

1: Oraan Podcast

These examples demonstrate how gender diversity and inclusivity in podcasting can provide a platform for women’s voices to be heard, which is crucial and can inspire young women to pursue their dreams, break stereotypes, challenge societal norms, and foster empathy and understanding.

By featuring more female guests and hosting podcasts that focus on gender equality and women’s empowerment, the podcasting industry can become a more inclusive and diverse space, inspiring a new generation of women to aspire to greater heights.

Fans eagerly await future episodes, hoping to see a more balanced guest list. Nonetheless, Ahmed Ali Butt’s podcast remains a must-listen for anyone interested in the entertainment industry and its fascinating personalities.
