The AW Confidential Podcast was created to inform and entertain. Episodes cover a wide range of topics.
The host, Yvette Bodden, and her guests discuss matters related to love, dating, authenticity, relationships, motherhood, careers, mental health, trauma, intimacy, empowerment, beauty, cheating, inspiration, community, identity, and life subjects.
The podcast spotlights male and female guests from all walks of life. You will hear from public figures in comedy, entertainment, journalism, television, beauty, and business. Pop-up guests help AW explore different perspectives on all things. The takeaway will always be something to motivate, entertain or plant a seed, offering an opportunity to open a dialogue with friends and family in your life.
Episodes are sure to be anything but confidential. Sometimes, educational and other times, provocative. Listen, as we put everything on the table and engage in honest, candid adult conversations.
