Future Women has launched a new podcast called Drive which is set to see some of Australia’s most inspiring women interviewed by 9News journalist and presenter Georgie Gardner.

The 10-part series is a collaboration with Nine, and features chats with actor Rachel Griffiths, podcaster Aminatou Sow, the AFL’s Tanya Hosch, chef Danielle Alvarez, and designer Alexandra Smart.

Other guests include Culture Amp’s Aubrey Blanche, Adopt Change founder Deborra-Lee Furness, and entrepreneur Shivani Gopal.

“I really warmed to the longer form of story-telling and jumped at the opportunity to work with the Future Women team,” said Gardner. “The diverse array of women I have chatted to were as delightful as they were interesting, and I relished the chance to immerse myself in their worlds and learn from their experiences.”

Episode One is an interview with former PM Julia Gillard, covering topics including her new book Women And Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons.

Future Women founder Helen McCabe praised Gardner’s work on the podcast, and hopes they’ve produced something to inspire and uplift those in lockdown.

“Georgie’s warmth and curiosity translated beautifully to this format and we are so proud to be releasing Drive with her at the helm.

“We began work on this while everyone was in lockdown which enhanced our desire to produce something uplifting and inspiring. Georgie Gardner is so well known on one level as a News Presenter and Breakfast TV Host, our hope with “Drive” is for the audience to get to know her a little better.”

Peta Fitzgerald, Uber Eats head of communications for Australia and New Zealand (who sponsor the podcast), says “Uber Eats is delighted to continue our affiliation with the Future Women movement.

“Not only is this an important property for quality, in depth journalism it is increasingly becoming a go-to source for future leaders across business, politics and social enterprise. As Uber Eats continues to focus on moving what matters, we know series like the Drive podcast will continue to tell moving, relatable and inspiring stories that matter and that is something we are proud to stand alongside.”

Drive joins the Future Women network of podcasts, which already includes Anonymous Was A Woman, the Future Women Leadership Series and Next Generation Innovators.

Drive is now available from your favourite podcast app.
