Journalist and television personality Jessica Rowe has launched her own podcast The Jessica Rowe Big Talk Show via LisTNR, with the first episode featuring her former co-host Karl Stefanovic.

The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show aims to dig deep with famous and successful people who appear to have it all together in the spotlight but in reality, make the same mistakes as the rest of us.

In the first episode, Rowe chats with Stefanovic and the podcast acts as the catalyst for confronting and acknowledging what really happened back in 2006 when the two co-hosted the Today Show.

The podcast brings the pair back together after 14 years as they discuss Rowe being sacked while on maternity leave, and an apologetic and emotional Stefanovic breaks down as both reflect on years of toxic, painful, and negative media coverage and the attention they received.

Rowe said: “Karl was big-hearted and willing to open up in a way I hadn’t expected. It was a hard conversation, which often are the best conversations, and it left me able to put a sparkly full stop on a dark and troubling time in my life.

“I love ‘big talk’, cutting the crap and getting to what makes our heart sing. I simply love talking and talking about what matters in our lives. In this podcast, I can have those, deep and meaningful conversations that are good for my soul.

“I learn something new each time in these conversations and I know our listeners will too!”

Karl Stefanovic said on the podcast: “We never really got the chance to sit down and unpack and it’s always been on my mind to sit down with you and talk with you through all that… I should have been more there for you.

“This is part of why I am here today, and it is to apologise to you. I wish I had been a better person, a better man and a stronger man, not just for myself but for you.”

LiSTNR , original podcast senior executive producer, Nic McClure, said: “Jess is really good at skipping the small talk and asking the questions we want to hear.

“Because she has such a kind heart and deep empathy for her guests, she can easily get straight to the sometimes uncomfortable questions and people just naturally open up to her, sharing things we haven’t heard before.”

There’s no place for small talk across the rest of the series too as Jess Rowe chats with Sophie Monk, Sarah Wilson, Pauline Hanson, Osher Günsberg, Firass Dirani, Mitch Tambo, Julia Morris, Steph Rice, Candice Warner, and Curtis Stone.
