Alison Rice Launches Offline, The Podcast—A Series of Honest Conversations

Amanda Bardas

Award-winning journalist and digital leader Alison Rice has launched her first podcast, Offline—a series of honest conversations with the women behind some of Australia's most popular Instagram accounts. Episode one features Jeannie Bourke, healer and founder of Venustus, and sets the tone for the series ahead. Together, Alison and Jeannie define the concept of 'true self' for listeners. 

Offline exists "as a resource for women who are ready to look past social media's highlight reel and develop their unique female codes."

Here I go – face first, arms open. Please meet @offlinethepodcast! This is for the women who are ready to live their lives instead of producing a highlight reel. I’m interviewing some of the incredible women we all love to follow on Instagram, and together we get real about life on the other side of the filter. I’m really interested in this concept of true self, and how we develop what I’m calling our unique female codes – our morals, our ethics and our character. There’s no lady boss here because it is time for a new narrative. We feel. I cry. @venustus_australia founder and healer Jeannie Bourke is my first guest. She defines self for #offlinethepodcast listeners, and then I explore this with my special guests in the episodes that follow. Releasing weekly for now. It isn’t perfect, in fact it is imperfect. Awkward at times. It sounds like my first podcast because it is! I’m calling that out because we are so used to highly commercial, over-produced content. I’m worried we have an incapacity to show anything less than perfection, and that’s really the reason for Offline to exist. I hope it serves its purpose to act as a resource for women who are struggling with comparison and social media making us feel less than. I’m so thankful to the women who’ve shared with me so far (ping Jeannie, @elle_ferguson @carmengracehamilton @chloebrinklow @paulajoye @zoebmarshall and more), and to those to come. Expect me in your inbox! It isn’t easy to be honest when you’re in the world so publicly. Fear of judgment is at times paralysing, but we can’t let it stop us from sharing. So with all that... it’s time to #getoffline! Follow @offlinethepodcast and hopefully I’ll see you in your ears.
