Victoria’s Secret launched its first original podcast, VS Voices, by award-winning host, advocate and Girlgaze founder, Amanda de Cadenet. Season one will explore the personal experiences of icons who share a passion to drive positive change in the world. It will include several women from the VS Collective. Victoria’s Secret launched the VS Collective in June 2021. It is 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. They will include other leading voices in our world today as well. The conversations will explore the unique backgrounds, experiences and passions of each woman and how it has inspired her advocacy. 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’s been such a joy to embark on VS Voices. It’s been great to connect with like-minded women around the world,” said de Cadenet. “Across the globe, I’ve been able to share stories with some of the most remarkable women about what connects us. Our purpose, advocacy, authentic selves, loss and love. I hope listeners will relate to these experiences and feel comforted that we are more similar than different.”
The first feature
The series premiere of VS Voices features Priyanka Chopra Jonas. The episode explores how growing up in India helped define her as an advocate for women and how she balances ambition with emotional vulnerability. It offers new insight into her grief around the death of her father. It also discusses how her culture reacted to her marriage to Nick Jonas. New podcast episodes release every Wednesday. Season one will feature conversations with VS Collective members Megan Rapinoe, Paloma Elsesser, Valentina Sampaio, Adut Akech and Eileen Gu. Future episodes will include additional icons, soon to be announced.
