VS Voices

Award-winning host and advocate Amanda de Cadenet connects with trailblazing women around the world to celebrate the multifaceted nature of the female experience. From models and athletes, to actors and designers, these honest conversations explore how their unique voices and journeys leave the world better than they found it. The VS Voices podcast provides a platform for women to speak their diverse truths, share personal stories, and advance discussions of issues that are important to them. If you choose to listen, you will hear a wide range of thoughts, opinions, and world views—some of which you may agree with and some you may not, and that’s ok. Our goal isn’t to champion any one perspective, but to provide a platform that amplifies women’s voices and the diversity of their perspectives. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of Victoria’s Secret. The content is purely for informational and entertainment purposes only and should not be taken as medical or other professional advice. Also, please take caution as the podcast may from time to time include content that you may deem to be offensive, objectionable, and/or explicit, but we still hope you enjoy hearing our guest’s stories and a unique view into their lives, purposes, and passions.
