    Fi Glover and Jane Garvey started their BBC radio careers in the 1990s - both following the fairly traditional route of working in local radio before moving to network radio at 5 Live and later Radio 4. In 2017, Fi and Jane launched a new podcast for Radio 4 called Fortunately, which has become one of the BBC's most enduring and most lauded titles. In a session curated by The Radio Academy, Fi and Jane discuss the move from radio in to podcasting, how the two formats vary, and what they see as the transferable skills between the two.
