It’s time to Shine It Up, as Jackie Gillies joins the Acast Creator Network

Gillies’ new podcast will be hosted, distributed and monetised by Acast

Get ready to #ShineShineShine. Jackie Gillies — businesswoman, psychic medium and cast member of The Real Housewives of Melbourne — is bringing her sassy, inspirational and adventurous spirit to her new podcast Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies, which launches today.

Hosted and distributed by the creator-first podcast company Acast, the show will offer listeners inspiration and motivation to live their best life as Jackie chats to special guests, answers questions, and shares everything going on in her life. As part of the Acast Creator Network, Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies will also be monetised through ads, sponsorship and branded content — which will see Jackie lending her voice and signature shine to brand messages, delivered directly to her listeners.

In the first two episodes, listeners will get a life update from Jackie including a deep dive into her IVF journey with husband Ben Gillies — and, throughout the first season, she’ll continue to provide updates on the arrival of her twins, due mid-October.

Jackie Gillies, host of Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies, said: “I am so excited to launch Shine it Up, with Jackie Gillies today, as the podcast has been in the works for such a long time I’m so pleased it’s finally here for everyone to listen to. I really wanted to do something more to inspire, motivate and empower people around the world, so the natural next step for me was to launch a podcast — and partnering with Acast has really felt like the perfect fit. I can’t wait to connect with my community in this new way and for everyone to hear the first episode, and the episodes to come.”

Jordon Lott, Content Development Manager for Acast Australia and New Zealand, said: “From the first meeting we had with Jackie, the whole Acast team felt her positive energy — it’s contagious — so we’re confident Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies will resonate with not just Real Housewives fans but a much wider audience. Jackie has such a passion for inspiring conversation and thinking outside the box, I can’t wait to see how that translates into the podcast.”

Guests of Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies will include JackieO, Julia Morris and Hannah Ferrier, while fans of The Real Housewives of Melbourne will have a lot to love about the podcast, with Jackie set to offer up her thoughts as the current season progresses — including interviews with past and present housewives Gina Liano and Janet Roach.

Acast — the creator-first podcast company that works with some of Australia’s biggest shows — will distribute Shine It Up, With Jackie Gillies, making it available across all podcast apps and players such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts. For brands and advertisers looking to work with Shine It Up With Jackie Gillies and beyond, opportunities are available exclusively through the Acast Marketplace.
