The producer and presenter tells us about her favourite podcasts
Zara Janjua has undertaken a highly varied career, with comedian, journalist, documentary director and TV news reporter among her credits. Since November she's been host of Ask For More, getting up close and personal with some of Scotland's top businesswomen as they discuss exactly how they got here today. Among the guests who have appeared in episodes so far are Judy Murray, Pheona Matovu and Diana Borland, while the likes of Kirsty Wark, Kaye Adams and Sharleen Spiteri are coming up soon. Here, Janjua tells us about uncovering the past and hiding under the covers.
Which podcast educates you?
The History Chicks which each week features an interesting female character from the past. I'm a huge fan of Gentleman Jack and Albert Nobbs: discovering the hidden history of women is fascinating.
Which podcast makes you laugh?
The Guilty Feminist with Deborah Frances-White. We can all be a bit hypocritical and expect too much of each other, so it's lovely to hear people talk openly about their flaws.
