Merrick Watts and Bianca Dye talk confidence on new podcast
Big names share their biggest confidence challenges on Claiming Your Confidence, The Podcast, hosted by Channel Seven Newsreader and author Katrina Blowers.
Sunrise host Edwina Bartholomew, comedian Merrick Watts and record-breaking Ultra Runner Jacqui Bell feature in the first three episodes out July 13.
Each week listeners will get a peek behind the curtain into the confidence journeys of influential celebrities, change-makers, business leaders, athletes and more.
Future guests include radio announcer Bianca Dye on conquering your inner critic, PepTalkHer founder Meggie Palmer, entrepreneur Samantha Wills and plus-size advocate Curvy Sam.
Watts is extraordinarily open about hitting his biggest confidence low after departing Triple M. “There was a period there where I was completely lost,” he tells Blowers.
“Outwardly, everyone was going ‘Mez is the same’, but inside I was just burning,” admits the former radio host. “And it was about my confidence.”
Claiming Your Confidence, The Podcast, is part of Blowers’ mission to reframe the confidence conversation – particularly for women – after having a panic attack live on-air.
“I used to think confidence was my superpower,” she says. “That experience led me to dive deep into figuring out what makes true confidence and how to get more of it.
“In sharing my story and discoveries with others, I’ve realised two things: we all have our confidence struggles no matter how shiny our life appears to be, and courage is contagious.”
