Newsreader Katrina Blowers Launches Claiming Your Confidence, The Podcast

Big names share their biggest confidence challenges on Claiming Your Confidence, The Podcast, hosted by Channel Seven Newsreader and author Katrina Blowers.

The new show launches July 13 on iTunes and Spotify with three episodes dropping on week one:  featuring Sunrise Host Edwina Bartholemew, Comedian Merrick Watts and record-breaking Ultra Runner Jacqui Bell.

Each week listeners will get a peek behind the curtain into the confidence journeys of influential celebrities, change-makers, business leaders, athletes and more.

Future guests include radio announcer Bianca Dye on conquering your inner critic, PepTalkHer Founder Meggie Palmer on how to nail your next salary negotiation, entrepreneur Samantha Wills and plus-size advocate Curvy Sam.

Watts is extraordinarily open about hitting his biggest confidence low after departing Triple M.  “There was a period there where I was completely lost,” he tells Katrina. “Outwardly, everyone was going ‘Mez is the same’, but inside I was just burning. And it was about my confidence.”

Bartholemew shares her struggles with body confidence and overcoming imposter syndrome. “That can be the biggest enemy of confidence is that self-doubt, isn’t it, and second-guessing yourself and always thinking back and wondering what you could have done differently. When you know, in live TV, you can’t actually go back. It’s done.”

Bell talks about never giving up on finding your purpose and overcoming addiction to become the youngest person in the world to complete ultra-marathons on all seven continents. “At the end of the day, I had to look inward,” she tells Katrina. “It was just about taking that step, it didn’t matter what, and making that decision to make a change. And that was the start of the running.”

Claiming Your Confidence, The Podcast, is part of Katrina’s mission to reframe the confidence conversation – particularly for women – after a panic attack live on-air while she was reading the news a few years ago.

“I used to think confidence was my superpower,” she says. “That experience led me to dive deep into figuring out what makes true confidence and how to get more of it. In sharing my story and discoveries with others, I’ve realised two things: we all have our confidence struggles no matter how shiny our life appears to be, and courage is contagious.”
