Princess Eugenie launches second series of anti-slavery podcast

Former PM Theresa May joins as first guest on ten-episode season

Princess Eugenie has launched the second series of her podcast Floodlight, which aims to raise awareness around issues of modern slavery and human trafficking.

The podcast is presented by The Anti-Slavery Collective, the nonprofit organisation that Eugenie co-founded with her friend Julia de Boinville in 2017 after a visit to a safehouse for trafficked women in India. 

The ten-part series sees the pair speaking to a range of guests including survivors, activists and lawmakers, with the first episode featuring former UK Prime Minister Theresa May. Other guests include British NFL player Efe Obada who was trafficked to the UK as a child, and actor Marisol Nichols who works with law enforcement to catch perpetrators.

"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,” Eugenie said. “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."

The series is produced by Stak, the podcast network and production company behind successful shows such as Boom, Utopia Talks, and Football Ramble.

"We are excited to share series two of Floodlight with listeners,” de Boinville added. “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."
