Victoria invites celebrities, entrepreneurs, and athletes to discuss life's challenges on Real Pod. In relatable discussions, they find commonality and realness in their daily lives.

She says having honest conversations was an essential part of the process.
Many people struggle with negative self-talk. They say things to themselves they would never say to their friends. People tell themselves that they're too ugly, too fat, not talented, and not smart enough. Internal dialogues create negative feedback loops. Some people also find their behavior shameful. They don't realize their weak moments are ordinary. On the Real Pod podcast, Victoria wants to bring stigmatized topics into the open. She believes that when people get real, everything gets better.
Special guests on Real Pod include Carli Lloyd, Lindsey Metselaar, and Liz Moody. In a powerful episode, Liz discusses body image. She reminds listeners that the body's value is more than how it looks. What the body looks like is the least important thing about it. She shares that healthy bodies may appear so different from each other. In another episode, Danyele Wilson teaches people to love the body type they have. Victoria also shares that she's stopped editing her pictures on social media. Having a curated Instagram feed seems crucial, but being oneself is liberating.
Victoria also provides tips on gaining confidence, freeing oneself from mental slumps, and more. Real Pod is an inspiring podcast that may help listeners overcome personal challenges. It may also help them develop more genuine ways of communicating themselves to the world. Getting real is difficult, but the rewards are life-changing.
