In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we’re delighted to be launching the first of 25 new episodes of the Women’s Prize for Fiction Podcast, in partnership with Baileys.

Hosted by Zing Tsjeng, VICE Executive Editor, the latest series will celebrate the best fiction written by women, welcoming influential names on to the show to discuss and debate the diverse back-catalogue of Women’s Prize-winning books, and explore the bookshelves of inspirational women.

Guests lined up for the podcast, which will release new episodes fortnightly, include Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens, Gemma Cairney, bestselling writer and cook Melissa Hemsley, Chair of Judges and businesswoman Martha Lane Fox, writer and Prize Co-Founder Kate Mosse, influencer Liv Purvis, and comedian Jessica Fostekew.

Podcast host and VICE Executive Editor Zing Tsjeng said:

“I’m incredibly excited about hosting this series of the Women’s Prize podcast! There’s going to be some amazing discussions featuring really inspirational people, and I’m especially excited to hear about the life-changing books that sit on other women’s bookshelves. The podcast is the perfect way to celebrate everything the Prize has achieved over the past 25 years, and will give us all the chance to consider what the next 25 years holds for women writers.”

The first episode is available now and features Liv Little, Founding Editor-in-Chief of Gal Dem magazine, in conversation with Zing about the five books by women that have shaped her.
