A new LBC original podcast
Episodes available every Monday from 19th April on Global Player
Today (13 April), LBC, Britain’s biggest commercial news talk station, announces Rachel Johnson’s Difficult Women, a brand-new podcast series hosted by journalist and LBC presenter Rachel Johnson.
Inspired by Ken Clarke’s “bloody difficult woman” phrase about Theresa May, Rachel wants to explore what it means to be seen as ‘difficult’ by speaking to some of the UK’s most influential and challenging women; history-makers and game-changers who’ve shaped the world around them. In honest and personal interviews, Rachel will discover what has driven them to challenge the norm and break down barriers through their work in politics, journalism, literature and activism.
Guests include former President of the Supreme Court Baroness Brenda Hale; journalist, broadcaster and Labour peer Baroness Joan Bakewell; author, broadcaster and former Conservative MP Edwina Currie; Royal expert and Associate Editor of the Daily Telegraph Camilla Tominey; Labour Party MP Dame Margaret Beckett; and veteran of Westminster wars, the journalist and Robert Maxwell survivor, Julia Langdon.

“I know podcasts are like babies – everyone thinks theirs is the most beautiful baby the world has ever seen – but I couldn’t be more thrilled to deliver this landmark podcast series for LBC, where I have a proper sit down with provocative, entertaining, political women of significance.”
