Two radio legends discuss the chuff of life

This event has been rescheduled from 14 December.

This event takes place in the British Library Theatre and will be simultaneously live streamed on the British Library platform. Tickets may be booked either to attend in person, or to watch on our platform (online) either live or within 48 hours on catch up.  In person ticket bookers will also be sent a bonus link to the online event. Viewing links will be sent out shortly before the event.

Award-winning broadcasters Fi Glover and Jane Garvey don't claim to have all the answers (what was the question?), but in their hilarious new book Did I Say That Out Loud? they take modern life by its elasticated waist and give it a brisk going over with a stiff brush. This cosy evening of 'waspish chuntering' will be introduced by another radio legend, Anita Anand. 


Jane Garvey has worked in broadcasting since 1987. She was the first voice on BBC Radio 5 Live when it opened and presented the station's award-winning Breakfast and Drive programmes with Peter Allen. In 2007, she moved not just to Radio 4, but to Woman's Hour, and discovered she'd have to prove herself all over again. Just as listeners began to adjust to her, she decided she better leave before it was too late. She credits Fortunately – the hit podcast she does with Fi Glover – with saving her sanity.

Fi Glover is the voice behind The Listening Project on BBC Radio 4, which lives in the archives of the British Library, and My Perfect Country for the BBC World Service. She worked at Radio 5 Live for seven years, hosting shows like Sunday Service, and the Afternoon Show, before moving to BBC Radio 4 as the host of Broadcasting House and then Saturday Live. Her and Jane Garvey's shared podcast, Fortunately, has been downloaded more than 20 million times and has over half a million subscribers.

Anita Anand has been a radio and television journalist for over 20 years. On BBC television she has presented, among other shows, Daily Politics, The Heaven and Earth Show and Newsnight. She presents Any Answers on BBC Radio 4, and is the author of Sophia: Princess, Suffragette, Revolutionary, Koh-i-Noor: The History of the World’s Most Infamous Diamond with William Dalrymple, and The Patient Assassin.
