April 27, 2020 — Konnie Huq has teamed up with PodcastWorks – partners of UK audio specialists RadioWorks – to launch a brand new podcast.
Thinking Out Loud with Konnie and Liz is the podcast where there are no stupid questions. Launching officially today (Monday 27th April), the podcast sees Konnie Huq and best mate Liz Owens pick big topics each week and share what they know (or what they think they know). They invite various bona fide experts, to correct mistakes, answer questions, and teach us all some interesting facts. Think of it as a cross between your favourite class at school and a really interesting chat down the pub.
Episode one will focus on The Brain, with Dr Emma Cahill (neuroscientist and expert), and episode two explores Drugs, with Dr Suzi Gage (drugs researcher and host of Say Why to Drugs).
Future episodes will cover a broad range of topics, including Tech, with Jamie Bartlett (internet expert and host of The Missing Cryptoqueen) and Socioeconomics, with Anne McElvoy, of The Economist and The Economist Asks podcast.
Konnie Huq said: “It’s great to be a part of such an exciting new project. Prepare for a series of tantalising trivia alongside some real-life experts, on a range of great topics. Hopefully you’ll enjoy listening to it just as much as we enjoyed making it!”
PodcastWorks Commissioning Editor, Ally Lang said: “There’s a really lovely dynamic between the two friends as they spar with those things they’re not sure they can say out loud; from myths to misconceptions, to total nonsense. We’re so proud that Konnie and Liz came to us with the project and it’s turned out to be a perfect tonic for what everyone is going through at the moment.”
