I’ve always liked this podcast but motherhood seems to have become the dominant theme of a lot of the interviews—even when the guest is not herself a mother. I’m happy for the host and appreciate that her life has changed with her pregnancy and newborn, but I’m wondering if I’m wanting to stick with this subscription. I was originally here to learn about amazing women, their careers and style—independent of their family status. It’s starting to feel like I’m eavesdropping on a maternity issues therapy session. While I’m sure there is a great need for this type of podcast too, it’s not exactly what’s being advertised.

This is one of those podcasts that I listen to religiously - even if I’m not initially familiar with the guest or interested in the topic - I’d listen just for Christine Barberich’s soothing voice alone! But, I get a few minutes into the intro and I’m hooked. Every guest, every topic, every season has been a pleasure! I’m so glad the podcast has returned for the new season - it’s like catching up with a long lost friend!

Podcast cover
Read more

Priyanka Chopra Jonas is a global superstar and one of India’s most famous women, but that doesn’t mean she’s slowing down any time soon. The unapologetically ambitious actress, philanthropist, and producer has found plenty of crossover success in America, including on ABC’s Quantico, where she became the first South Asian woman to lead a network TV drama (her dreamy wedding last year to Nick Jonas didn’t hurt much either). Nevertheless, Chopra is down-to-earth, deeply driven, and a staunch advocate for the urgency around diversity and representation on screen. Priyanka joins us on the latest installment of the UnStyled podcast to talk about celebrating life, finding love, and why she returned to her Bollywood roots with the newly released Hindi-language film, The Sky Is Pink.
