I am super proud to feature Caz and Georgie, aka The Large G&C, two fabulous women on a mission to bring laughter to their uncensored lifestyle vlog. Ex BBC presenters Caz and Georgie joined forces to build an entertaining instagram feed, filled with funnies, that will have you belly laughing out loud. There work together on The Large G&C is generating work, which compliments their individual acting/voice over/presenting freelance work. I first met Caz when she interviewed me discussing my ethical fashion label Deborah Campbell Atelier on BBC Radio Solent a few years ago. Working together on The Large G&C is generating work, which compliments their individual freelance work. Discover how they navigate the somewhat toxic world of media.
FF: Can you tell us a bit about your background?
G&C: Variety is everything – we have both established backgrounds as TV presenters, radio hosts and voice over artists – the majority of which have been at the BBC – and Caz is also an actress
FF: What does Future Female mean to you?
G&C: Embracing everything positive about being a woman! Despite all odds, to date we have successfully circumnavigated the somewhat toxic world of media and carved out our own paths. Whenever we’re been rejected for a job or met head on with the endemic misogynstic behaviour in the world of media, we have ploughed on regardless. It’s tough out there but that doesn’t mean that we have become a pair of tough old birds as a result! We have always remained true to ourselves and understand that the most important traits of all are kindness and being supportive of each other and other women.
FF: The recent #MeToo hash tag caught the attention of many women who joined the conversation, what is your view and have you been affected by misogynistic behaviour during your lifetime and is it something you feel comfortable discussing?
G&C: Growing self-confidence since becoming freelance and feeling very happy with where we are now has made the world of difference. For years, we were too scared to talk about the mysongynistic behaviour (we have both felt the raw end of this numerous times – more details on request!) – but thanks to #MeToo we have found our voice too.
FF: Describe your current work
G&C: A heady mix of TV presenting, vlogging, voice over work, hosting/compering events, media training. We love the fact that every week is different for us both as vlogging partners and as individuals.
FF: What do you love about being your own boss such as running your freelance projects and your vlog?
G&C: That we have choice – we choose what we want to work on and how we do it. We love working together on The Large G & C and generating our own work as result.
FF: With the growth of small businesses run by women, do you feel this will help support and inspire the future generations?
G&C: We whole-heartedly support women and are all about cheer-leading others. As mothers of daughters, we firmly believe in setting an example to our children and showing that mutual support and encouragement are the key to happiness and confidence not only now, but in the future.
FF: If there was one thing you would change about your life as a woman what would it be?
G&C: Too feel less guilty about EVERYTHING!
FF: What are you reading at the moment?
G&C: Gill Sims’ “Why Mummy Swears” and “Why Mummy Drinks” before we interview her at the Winchester Comedy Festival 28th Sept – we can’t wait to meet a kindred spirit!
FF: How would you describe your style?
G&C: Real, authentic, natural, honest and always looking at the funnier side of life
A massive thanks to Caz and Georgie for being part of our Future Female series. Do pop over and follow their fabulous feed, The Large G&C I love their laughter filled tiles and regularly chuckle away at their crazy antics. Just the tonic if motivation wonders, on any given day of the week. Photographs: Abi Chadwick Abi Chadwick Photos
