New Release: The Only One in the Room


Lipstick & Vinyl launched their podcast firm one year ago. Their first original show, The Only One in the Room, hosted by Laura Cathcart Robbins and produced by Lipstick & Vinyl’s Christina Barsi, launched Tuesday.

Cathcart wrote a piece in The Huffington Post about her experience being the only black woman in the room at a famed writers retreat. She was overwhelmed with comments from people of all races, ethnicities, creeds, and nationalities who had also felt “othered.” Each episode will feature accounts of celebrity confessionals to people responding to Laura’s article, as she interviews them about their “Only One” story. This podcast is for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people.

“The network of podcasts we represent is focused on underrepresented and diverse voices. Right now, that means female voices. Our hosts are award-winning journalists, TV writers, comedians, single mothers, mavericks of online entertainment, and advocates for social change,” said Allyson Marino. “We are super proud to offer partnerships with insanely talented podcasters to brands and agencies, and we are thrilled that The Only One in the Room is the first of what I hope are many future original programs from Lipstick & Vinyl.”

The Only One in The Room and all of the Lipstick & Vinyl podcasts are available for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, and wherever listeners get their shows. Listeners can find more information at
