Boots Taboo Talk podcast is back for its third season and has announced its largest ever selection of celebrity guests to take part in a series of conversations surrounding some of the biggest health and wellness ‘taboo’ topics. Host Vogue Williams will be joined by famous faces and trusted experts to discuss issues many of us experience, but struggle to open-up about, from acne to body acceptance… plus, everything you need to know about vulvas!

The season kicks off on 27 July, with guests Anna Williamson and Luisa Zissman having an open and honest conversation about the sensitive subject of pre and postnatal depression, as they share their personal experiences and discuss the importance of breaking down stigmas associated with maternal mental health.

Boots is not only helping to open these important conversations but also offers an extensive range of wellness products and healthcare services and advice for all topics covered. The Boots Online Doctor Service provides advice and services for over 45 healthcare conditions, from skin conditions to sexual health and family planning, alongside weight loss support and menopause treatments.
