Following the release of her Sunday Times bestselling debut novel, Mother Mother and her recent departure from BBC Radio 1 after 17 years, Annie Macmanus returns with the fourth series of her critically acclaimed podcast Changes.
Guests lined-up to feature across the series include film director Steve McQueen, comedian Jimmy Carr, model Emily Ratajkowski and more.
The podcast features candid conversations about how we as a species, cope with and adapt to change, and how we can affect change. These are conversations to inspire and incite action, to evoke tears of empathy and frustration and to learn from.
Multi-award-winning director Steve McQueen, responsible for Hunger (2008) starring Michael Fassbender, Shame (2011) featuring Carey Mulligan and 12 Years A Slave (2013) with Benedict Cumberbatch and Lupita Nyong’o is one of the most acclaimed and influential artists of his generation and is the first guest on this week’s episode.
The Academy and Oscar award winner talks to Annie about the lack of black role models, being dyslexic, his experience at college, leaving NYU after three months, Grenfell and supporting black women.
The fourth series of Changes with Annie Macmanus runs from today, 13 September through to 29 November with new episodes released weekly on Apple, Spotify, Acast and all other podcast providers.
