You may know Ashley Graham best through her work as a model, business-savvy entrepreneur, and body-positivity activist. But now, fans are going to get to know the 30-year-old star on a more personal level through her just-launched podcast, Pretty Big Deal with Ashley Graham.
“Anyone who knows me knows I talk. A lot,” the model said about the origins of her show. “As life has gotten busier, I’ve made it a point to start listening just as much as I chat. Through listening to podcasts and truly engaging with the fascinating people I’m lucky enough to know, I’ve learned and added so much more culture and knowledge to my life. Now, with Pretty Big Deal I can share that knowledge, inspiration and fun. I can’t wait to get closer to my followers, meet more people, learn and laugh more with this show that is so close to my heart.”
“Throughout my teenage years and my career, I was often referred to as ‘pretty for a big girl,’” Ashley added. “When I started to realize how much power words can have, I thought to myself, I am pretty, and I am big. I’m a pretty big deal!”
Guests scheduled for the star-studded Pretty Big Deal Season 1 include actors, athletes, and influencers like Kim Kardashian West, Gabrielle Union, Amy Schumer, Noor Tagouri, Lindsay Vonn, and many more. All of Ashley’s guests will be talking about a variety of “pretty big” important topics, like true beauty, business ventures, motherhood, public scrutiny, and their own intimate conversations with the host.
Ms. Kim K is Pretty Big Deal‘s first-ever guest – and the perfect celebrity to kick off the new podcast.
“I had a vision for Pretty Big Deal and Kim Kardashian is one of those names you put out there as a dream guest,” Ashley told WWD. “When she actually agreed to be on my show, it hit me that this podcast was really happening.”
