The pair of friends have titled their new project Floodlight, and launched it on Wednesday morning with a clear goal to "raise awareness of modern slavery and explore how we can all help rid the world of this global epidemic".

Over ten episodes, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter and Julia will speak to slavery survivors and campaigners and listeners will hear real stories from the people who prosecute, the people fighting for change and the brave testimony of a survivor.

The pair's first guest is Caroline Haughey OBE QC, a leading lawyer in modern slavery and trafficking in the UK. But during the next few months, listeners will also hear from Dame Emma Thompson, Wumi, a survivor of child labour and Ian Urbina, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist who has reported extensively on modern slavery at sea, amongst many more guests.

The episodes will go live every Wednesday, something Eugenie and Julia's podcast has in common with Mike Tindall's popular rugby show, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby.

Zara Tindall's husband and his colleagues, Alex Payne and James Haskell, go live every Wednesday, and not only do they talk all things rugby, but Mike usually shares snippets of his family life.

Both Eugenie and Mike have podcasts

Most recently, the father-of-three detailed his Easter and was cheekily teased over his stay at Windsor Castle after attending the Easter Sunday service at St. George's Chapel.

"Do you ever, on weekends like that, get out of the four-poster bed and ring the little bell for a cup of tea in the morning and just think 'How in god's name have I ended up here?'?" Alex asked Mike during last week's episode, to which he quickly jokingly replied: "Pretty much every time I am there, yeah. No, I never ring a bell, obviously, but it's strange."
