Victoria’s Secret today launched its first original podcast, VS Voices, by award-winning host, advocate, and Girlgaze founder, Amanda de Cadenet. The first season will explore the personal experiences of a group of icons who share a common passion to drive positive change in the world, including several women from the VS Collective. Victoria’s Secret launched the VS Collective in June 2021, as part of its brand revolution to inspire women with products, experiences and initiatives that champion them and support their journey.
Each episode of VS Voices will feature a one-on-one interview with de Cadenet and icons from the VS Collective as well as other leading voices in our world today. The conversations will explore the unique backgrounds, experiences and passions of each woman and how it has inspired her advocacy and for the first time, the ambitious work the VS Collective is embarking on in partnership with Victoria’s Secret.
“After two years of being isolated from my female friends, it has been such a joy to embark on VS Voices and connect with like-minded women around the world,” said de Cadenet. “From London to Buenos Aires, I’ve been able to share stories with some of the most remarkable women about the things that connect us: purpose, advocacy, authentic selves, loss and love. I hope listeners will relate to these experiences and be comforted by the knowledge that we are more similar than we are different.”
The series premiere of VS Voices featuring Priyanka Chopra Jonas explores how growing up in India helped define her as an advocate for women, how she balances ambition with emotional vulnerability, and offers new insight into her grief around the death of her father, and how her culture reacted to her marriage to Nick Jonas. The episode will be available on October 6 with new episodes released each Wednesday. Season one will feature conversations with VS Collective members Megan Rapinoe, Paloma Elsesser, Valentina Sampaio, Adut Akech and Eileen Gu as well as additional icons, soon to be announced.
