Tales from the Tannoy

Series 2, Episode 1: Turns Out, I Was Right

from Tales from the Tannoy | Published 2/10/2021

Janey Godley has spent lockdown livening up Nicola Sturgeon's coronavirus briefings with her alternative voiceovers. She's made the nation laugh through the toughest of times, but who is the woman behind the voice? Tales from the Tannoy tells the stories behind all the anonymous voices in our day-to-day lives, and although Janey's name and face are known by many, we felt it was worth bending our own rules. (Well, it's our podcast and we can do what we like.)She tells her incredible tale in her own, very sweary, way. Contains some material which listeners may find upsetting or offensive. And the odd C Bomb.With Elinor Hamilton. Recorded in February 2021, and produced by Karl Svenson at Tadah Media.
