From their experience of lockdown as a female, to making it to the top as a woman in a man’s industry, these are warts-and-all chats, home recorded by the stars themselves. The episodes reflect on how they’ve used laughter and positivity to get through these extraordinary times and what they'd like to change about the world and the future for women.
