Turia Pitt launches new podcast series on LiSTNR
Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has partnered with Turia Pitt to launch the new podcast Turia Pitt is Hard Work on its LiSTNR platform.
Produced by LiSTNR’s Romy Sher, Turia Pitt is Hard Work sees Pitt discuss her own hardships and unpack the experiences of others to answer the question ‘What do we learn about ourselves from doing hard things?’
Over the course of the series, Pitt will interview a range of personalities about overcoming setbacks, dealing with trauma and staying resilient in the face of adversity, with guests including brain cancer surgeon Professor Charlie Teo, Paralympian and war veteran Curtis McGrath and popular podcast host Jamila Rizvi.
Other guests to appear on Turia Pitt is Hard Work include Nikki Webster, Rabia Siddique, Dr. Yumiko Kadato and Kate Sanderson.
Pitt noted her excitement for audiences to engage with the podcast.
“The concept came about due to the realisation that in the 10 years since the fire, I’m still not sure what exactly it is that helps people get through hard times,” Pitt said of the new title.
“So I wanted to chat to other people who have done really hard things, unbelievable feats, people who I really respect, love and admire – to find out what they thought helped them, and distill what we can all learn from that.”
LiSTNR’s Sam Cavanagh commended Pitt for her involvement in the podcast, saying that “Turia epitomises the word inspirational”.
“People will love these incredible conversations of Turia speaking to those who inspire her, to understand what we learn through adversity.”
Turia Pitt is Hard Work is available to listen to now on LiSTNR.
