Laura Whitmore launches brand new podcast

Laura Whitmore launches ‘CASTaway’ the ‘podcast about podcasts’. Broadcaster, performer, chancer and podcast lover Laura Whitmore is on a mission to uncover the best podcasts out there by interviewing a celebrity guest every week about what they’re listening to.

Guests will reveal their personal passions through their podcast choices, sharing show recommendations about mental health, comedy, love, crime and fictional series.

Castaway launches on Thursday, 17th October, kicking off with comedian Iain Stirling as the first guest. Together, Laura and Iain discuss their shared love of Kathy Burke, why Iain was a podcast fan before it was cool to listen to podcasts and the story behind Iain’s podcast named after his book ‘Not Ready to Adult Yet’. Other guests in the first series includes model and DJ Daisy Lowe, bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher and one half of Irish rap duo The Rubberbandits, Blindboy.
