The series won the 2022 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Informative Talk Show and all four episodes of the first season are currently available to stream on Disney+.
In season 2, Robin Roberts gets personal with a new group of Hollywood’s groundbreaking women as they bear witness to their incredible journeys on their path to purpose. Each episode contains profound conversations filled with emotion and inspiration. Listen to never-before-heard stories of how these groundbreakers came face-to-face with their vulnerability, authenticity and intuition. Discover their commonalities and learn how their stories and experiences created room for expansion and evolution.
“Having the opportunity last season to speak with such powerful, incredible women, all of various ages and backgrounds, was extremely special for me,” says executive producer and host Robin Roberts. “They taught us so much about intuition, authenticity, vulnerability and what it means to be a groundbreaker and the struggle that can come with it. These women’s willingness to have candid, intimate conversations and come together to support each other is inspirational to witness and something I think we all need more of in this world. I can’t wait to go on this journey again with our viewers.”
Last season’s guests included Debbie Allen, Sofia Carson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jenna Dewan, Sheila E., Melissa Etheridge, Mickey Guyton, Betsey Johnson, Billie Jean King, Tig Notaro, Raven-Symoné and Josie Totah in never-before-heard discussions on life, growth, and their experiences.
