The House of Lords have announced that they will be starting their own podcast, with the first episode out on November 6th.
The monthly podcast will be fronted by 2 hosts, Matt and Amy, who will interview members and staff from the House of Lords about what is happening within the House and also, what it’s like to work there as individuals.
The first episode, titled Responding to a pandemic, will focus on the Lord Speaker, Lord Fowler about his role and the House of Lords more generally, with other guests Deputy Speaker Baroness McIntosh of Hudnall and Conservative Whip Baroness Penn about how the work within the Lords has changed over time.
The podcast is expected to help the public understand the workings of the House of Lords in a digestible fashion for the average person, rather than having to keep up with every time the house convenes.
The podcast will be available soon on Acast, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Soundcloud, Spotify, TuneIn with Amazon Music, Audible and Google podcasts reportedly coming soon.
