Fortunately x Changes: Fi Glover, Jane Garvey & Annie Macmanus in conversation
25 May 2022
'Talking Podcasts' Main Stage
Industry Pro , New Creator
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 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. Annie Macmanus joined Radio 1 in 2003, initially as a Broadcast Assistant, before making her way on-air a year later. After 17 years on the station, she signed off for the final time in 2022. She now hosts the Changes podcast, talking to artists, writers, musicians and more about the biggest changes they've overcome, and how they effect change. In a session curated by The Radio Academy, our three guests discuss the move from radio in to podcasting, how the two formats vary, and what they see as the transferable skills between the two.
