    Ask Me Anything: Host Alison Rice on her pregnancy, labour preparation and the postpartum period.

    Ask Me Anything: Host Alison Rice on her pregnancy, labour preparation and the postpartum period.

    To close season six, host Alison Rice dedicates her Ask Me Anything episode to her little girl, Betty. 
    So often, the stories we hear about pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are negative and fear-based. Alison’s experience has been more soft than hard, and so she hopes that sharing a different perspective might help other women feel more excited than scared about this new chapter.
    In this extended episode, Alison answers listener questions about her pregnancy, navigating pregnancy anxiety, her labour preparation, hospital bag must-haves and why she believes she had a soft and positive postpartum experience. 
    She also talks about the sense of perspective she has following two pregnancy losses, the life lessons she hopes to teach her little girl, her thoughts on her career and earning after having a baby, the products she’s loved, the books she read, her emerging parenting style, and opens up about Betty’s personality and what she looks like. 
    Below is a list of everything Alison refers to in this episode, plus a few extras she forgot to include.

    Fashion entrepreneur Gab Waller on having the confidence to push through rejection and how to develop deep relationships with clients.

    In this special Self Care Sundays mini-series produced by Studio Offline and in partnership with Estée Lauder, host Alison Rice sits down with some of the brand’s inspiring ambassadors and friends to have an honest conversation about their careers, businesses, life on the other side of the filter, fashion, beauty and... confidence. 
    What does confidence really mean to women and what does having it help us to achieve?
    The topic and series celebrates Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, a product that allows women to wear confidence and feel empowered to take on the day. 
     
    Alison’s next guest is personal shopper to the stars and fashion entrepreneur, Gab Waller. She got her big break sourcing and “Old Celine” coat for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in 2018, and hasn’t looked back. She now has a team of six helping her to respond to hundreds of personal shopping requests each day.
     
    In this episode, Gab opens up about what confidence means to her, how she’s seen fashion change a woman’s perception of herself, her breakthrough moment, why it’s so important to push through rejection, how she’s thinking about scaling her business, building her support team, how to develop deep relationships with clients and brands, the lessons she’s learnt the hard way, the importance of discretion in her business and how she’s thinking about circularity in our need-it-now consumer culture.

    Stephanie Miller and Laura Henshaw open up about their journey from influencers to entrepreneurs.

    Stephanie Miller and Laura Henshaw open up about their journey from influencers to entrepreneurs.

    Host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with Keep It Cleaner (KIC) co-founders and friends, Stephanie Miller and Laura Henshaw. What started as an ebook and a hobby has since grown into a multi-platform offering spanning recipes, workouts, mindful guides, community events and a podcast. 
    But how did they do it? Have they had investment? How did they know who to hire? And what advice do they have for anyone with ambition to start a movement? Alison asks it all. 
    The trio also discuss social media in all its usefulness and complexity, and Alison asks for their opinion on gifting. Is what was once an interesting and organic way for brands to expose their products to new audiences becoming more harmful than helpful? 
    Steph generously opens up about how she’s feeling five weeks into her new role as Harvey’s mum, and Laura gifts us with invaluable insights about growth, evolution and confidence.

    Rae Johnston reflects on the realities of being a woman working in science, gaming and tech.

    Rae Johnston reflects on the realities of being a woman working in science, gaming and tech.

    In honour of National Reconciliation Week, please enjoy this replay of Alison's honest conversation with proud Wiradjuri woman, mum, award-winning STEM journalist and host, Rae Johnston. It first aired in May 2019.
    Compassionate, strong and with an incredible sense of justice, Rae is a modern role model for women everywhere.
    In this episode, Rae shares unique and inspiring lessons taken from her humble beginnings — including what it was like to have $5 left each week after paying her bills and feeding her child as a 19 year-old mum, the disappointing and often-complex realities of being a woman working in gaming, tech and science, her reflections on the trauma she experienced as a young model trying to get her start, her advice to employers on how to attract and support Indigenous talent, and how proposing to her husband was less about challenging gender norms and more about deep love and respect.
    This conversation is longer than others, but every minute of it is compelling, educational and inspiring.

    Doctor and zero waste life advocate Anita Vandyke on living in alignment with your values.

    Doctor and zero waste life advocate Anita Vandyke on living in alignment with your values.

    Host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with doctor, rocket scientist, author and zero waste life advocate Anita Vandyke. In this episode, Anita challenges the dogma surrounding living a zero waste life, educating us that it’s not about being perfect. It’s about effort.
     
    Have you ever found yourself wanting to reduce your personal waste but feel totally overwhelmed when it comes to how? Or maybe you’re scared that if you try, you’ll fail. And then there’s the fear of the judgement that can come with trying to live more consciously. . . 2020 taught us that cancel culture is real and while sometimes very valid, it also stops us from speaking up and out about the ways we’re trying to be better.
     
    Anita is here to help us take a step forward. She explains that living a zero waste life often starts with living a low waste life. She also shares how she personally handles criticism for her choices, why she implements spending bans and what she discovers when she does, easy zero waste strategies that absolutely anyone could implement today, why spirituality and science do co-exist and what motherhood and a major health scare taught her about herself.
