CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #104 Lauren Laverne (On The Intimacy Of Radio)

Lauren Laverne is a radio DJ, television presenter, author and co-founder of the award-winning digital platform The Pool.

So excited to have Lauren Laverne on the podcast today. She has presented TV shows including 10 O’Clock Live for Channel 4, and The Culture Show and coverage of the Glastonbury Festival for the BBC. She currently presents a radio show on BBC Radio 6 Music and also Late Night Woman’s Hour.

We discuss the fact that Late Night Woman’s Hour podcast has it’s own dedicated podcast (very exciting), why she started the award-winning digital platform The Pool, some advice for young women, the evolution of audio, the joy of radio and why privacy matters in the social media age.

If you’re interested in listening to the Late Night Woman’s Hour podcast episode that I was a guest on  (the theme was work and rest), it is available to listen to here.

Check iTunes first thing tomorrow to listen.
