Amy O'Brian ignores female podcasters in her article

I've been bellyaching commenting on the various articles on podcasting that I find written by Canadian journalists that continue to leave out the female voice. I commented on how one journalist missed the mark recently in an article he wrote for the Toronto Star (he apologized) and why women are doing so well in podcasting (see this post).

So, I stumbled across an article written by Amy O'Brian for canada.com back in March 2006. In it, she interviewed Tod Maffin (the Canadian version of Adam Curry, but without the flash and self-importance) and some other chap. Not one woman was quoted or mentioned.

How sad. With all the women finding success using podcasting, why do journalists like O'Brian not want to profile these diva-ized voices in their articles?
