HRH Princess Eugenie and Julia de Boinville are back with the second series of their podcast Floodlight.
The new series is launched today, 19 October on Anti-Slavery Day and is brought to listeners by The Anti-Slavery Collective.
Over a decade ago, Princess Eugenie and Julia visited a safehouse for trafficked women in Kolkata, India. They were shocked to discover the extent to which slavery still exists, so they spent the next five years educating themselves about it.
They met experts and survivors to understand more and in 2017 founded The Anti-Slavery Collective with a mission to raise awareness of modern slavery.
Returning with their second ten-part series, each week the co-founders talk with guests to explore how we can help eradicate this global epidemic. These include activists, politicians, lawmakers and survivors who are fighting for change.
Their first guest is former Prime Minister Theresa May, who introduced the UK’s Modern Slavery Act in 2015.
Each episode will deliver clear takeaways, including ways to spot signs of potential slavery in your own workplace and community, or how to shop more ethically and ensure your purchases don’t support modern slavery.
HRH Princess Eugenie says: “Across ten episodes, Julia and I have been lucky enough to speak to some incredible people who are campaigning to end modern slavery in all its forms.
“Listeners will learn how this is very much a hidden crime; and touches all sectors of society. Together, we can do something about this. Join us as we bring together change-makers and raise awareness in the fight against modern slavery.”
Julia de Boinville adds: “We are excited to share series two of Floodlight with listeners. We are in awe of the work our guests have done to combat this global epidemic, and their episodes all have fantastic takeaways we can all learn from.”
Produced by Stak, the second series of Floodlights is available every Wednesday on all podcast platforms.
