Vogue Williams says podcast with Joanne McNally needs editing because it’s ‘spicy’

The My therapist ghosted me Co-host spoke about the success of her joint podcast with comedian McNally, which now attracts 3 million listeners a month.

“It doesn’t feel like a job, it just feels like great fun with Joanne,” she told Newstalk’s The Anton Savage Show.

“Maybe we sit on a 40-minute podcast and end up talking for an hour and 30 minutes. We really enjoy it,” she said.

The 38-year-old admitted that she edits the podcast every week because “Joanne can’t stand listening to us,” adding that “sometimes there are a few spicy records.”

The podcast, which received a Champion award at the British Podcast Awards last month, launched in April 2021 and offers “100 percent honesty guaranteed” on topics “that therapists want to avoid.”

On the topic of censorship, host Anton Savage asked Ms Williams if she ever takes a step back to think about a sensitive topic or a personal detail that goes out to 3 million people.

“I feel like you can’t really filter yourself because it’s not scripted. We do a lot of research during the week. You don’t want to filter a conversation or it becomes really stilted,” she said.

She emphasized that her goal from the start was for it to be “free-flowing and fun” and that she didn’t consider herself a “very private person.”

“It’s not just about things we shouldn’t say we can get away with, Joanne tends to get away with more of them than I do,” Ms. Williams said, adding that the juicy content hasn’t hindered any of her brand deals.

She noted that the two were both surprised and amazed at how popular the podcast became at the top of the charts, and that they didn’t feel like it was happening so quickly.

She said they “never in a million years” thought it would be as big as it has been, calling it a “very happy surprise” after their listenership skyrocketed.

Now 207 episodes in, the Howth woman admitted the live audience version of her podcast was intimidating for her at first and she got through it by following McNally’s lead, who already had plenty of stage experience from her Prosecco comedy tour.

“I never thought I would ever do this. When people pay, we want them to leave with a smile on their face. That was the most important thing and the Irish crowd is always so crazy anyway. We are very lucky,” she said.

Ms Williams is back in Ireland and will attend a fashion show at the Crescent Shopping Center in Limerick with TV presenter Muireann O’Connell and modeling agent Celia Holman Lee.

While living in London with her husband Spencer Matthews and their three children, the Dublin native hinted that there may be a time when she returns home for good.

“The schools in Ireland are great and I would like to move back one day, but at the moment I work a lot in London and I want to spend as much time with the children as possible,” she added.
