BBC Radio 4 Extra's Amanda Litherland on her Podcast Radio Hour, comedy and interviewing
BBC Radio 4 Extra's Podcast Radio Hour has become another way to discover great podcasts, as well as an opportunity for some lucky podcasters to get heard on the radio.
Host and producer Amanda Litherland came up with the idea a few years ago, and found herself thrown in front of the microphone. Luckily, her comedy background has helped her presenting, although she is open about only practice can give you interviewing skills - and the confidence to ask those questions.
On this episode, we delve into what makes podcasts different to radio, why comedians and podcasts go together and the Eddie Mair advice that helps her show.
Amanda loves podcast recommendations, so do give her tweet @amandalitherland. If it's funny, all the better!
