TenEighty recently spoke to Hannah Witton about her new chat show, Girl On Girl.
Hannah Witton has announced she’ll be hosting her very own chat show, in collaboration with content studio Astronauts Wanted. Titled Girl On Girl, the show will be airing exclusively on YouTube and will see Hannah speaking with guests about various topics important to women.
Speaking with TenEighty, Hannah explains how Girl On Girl came to be: “I’d been working with Astronauts Wanted for a while now. and Lindsay – my producer – asked if they could make any show with me, what kinds of things would I like to talk about? I sent her a list of stuff, including women, feminism, sex, etc, and she came back to me with the idea of Girl On Girl!”
Filming for Girl On Girl began on 18 February, with Hannah’s bedroom transformed into the show’s studio. Set to premiere later this month on the Astronauts Wanted YouTube channel, the show will cover topics Hannah regularly discusses on her personal channel, as well as “dating apps, body image, female pleasure, being a Muslim feminist, reclaiming words, and the idea of ‘having it all'”.
Each episode will feature guest appearances, with Akilah Hughes, Mae Martin, Luisa Omeilan, author Juno Dawson, and more set to join Hannah for Series One.

“I hope it makes people realise that there is no such thing as a ‘perfect feminist’ and [that] we all make mistakes,” says Hannah when discussing her hopes for the show. “You can talk about serious things without losing your sense of humour, and don’t be afraid to talk about the things that matter to you.”
To conclude, TenEighty asked Hannah what she has to say to opponents of feminism: “Be open-minded! If you’re someone who shuts down and won’t listen, or goes into attack mode when you hear the phrase ‘I’m a feminist’, then stop, listen, and let’s have a conversation.”
Episode One of Girl On Girl premieres on 21 March, with Hannah speaking to comedian Akilah Hughes. Those wishing to stay up-to-date with the show can do so by subscribing to its official newsletter.
