'The Conversation' - on Foxtel, on Style: hosted by Amanda de Cadanet

Have you heard about 'The Conversation'?

Remember when Miley Cyrus talked about how sex was "magical and cool"? Yep, it was on this show.

Here's the clip and backgrounder: http://josiesjuice.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/miley-cyrus-sex-is-magical-and-cool.html

And here is an entire ep, featuring... well, just watch: http://josiesjuice.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/conversation-jane-fonda-gwyneth-paltrow.html

It's hosted by British personality Amanda de Cadanet - and co-exec-produced by Demi Moore - and guess what? It's finally being broadcast in Australia! See details below.

Check out the show's clip, to give you a good idea of the format and flavour of the show:

This clip featuring Zoe Saldana created lots of buzz when it screened in the US:

More about the show: the Australian premiere date is Monday, October 22 2012 at 9.30pm, on the Style channel on Foxtel.

Amanda is also a renowned photographer, and for those who really know their pop culture, you'll know she was once married to John Taylor from Duran Duran, also the father of her first child; she is now married to The Stroke guitarist Nick Valensi, with whom she has twins.

Amanda was thrust into the spotlight at the age of 14 as the host of various UK television shows. After years being in front of the camera, she decided to try her hand at photography and hasn’t looked back since. After a 20 year career, she is still the youngest woman to shoot a Vogue magazine cover and her work has appeared in a range of magazines such as Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times Magazine. Impressive!

In 'The Conversation', Amanda interviews some of the world’s most influential women. The roll call is quite incredible and impressive: Jane Fonda, Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kelly Preston, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys, Sarah Silverman, Ivanka Trump, Olivia Wilde, and loads more, on all topics including sex positions [yep], love, fake breasts, losing a child, losing a parent, sexuality, body image, relationships, career and finances, human rights and politics. 

The show is a refreshing and intimate take on the interview format, with each hour-long episode presenting an honest and raw view of the shared issues affecting women today. 

The best part is watching de Cadenet’s natural ease, as well as the cosy interview setting – most interviews take place in either her, or the interviewee’s home. 

'The Conversation' also features "Women on the Street” segments in which a range of women will reveal their personal feelings about their lives and the world today.

Don't miss it. Ladies, it's worth getting Foxtel for, if you don't already have it. Really.

'The Conversation' premieres October 22 at 9.30pm AEDT only on Style. (Style is available on Foxtel on Channel 122)
