A brand-new 10-part podcast, They Don’t Teach This At School with Myleene Klass is being launched by Global.
The Smooth Radio and Classic FM presenter, musician and author has been on a mission to help equip everyone with the skills they need to be capable, adaptable, confident and in control of their life, no matter their age.
They Don’t Teach This At School follows the success of her book of the same title, as each week, Myleene sits down with a celebrity friend for a wide-ranging conversation about the skills and people that helped shaped them when they were young.
Across 10 episodes, Myleene speaks to a range of well-known guests, including Heart Breakfast presenter Amanda Holden, Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, former world champion boxer Amir Khan, comedian Matt Lucas, presenters Vanessa Feltz and Lauren Laverne, and author Caitlin Moran.
Myleene and her guests delve into their past to discuss the life skills they wish they had been taught, the importance of people and community, dealing with issues such as grief and sexuality, as well as the teachers who inspired them.
Myleene Klass said: “How many times have you found yourself in a situation when you thought ‘I wish they taught this at school’? We learned loads of stuff we didn’t necessarily need, but what about the essential life hacks we absolutely need now? Plumbing, basic finance, first aid and many other lifesaving vital skills.
“Listen to my brand new Global original podcast They Don’t Teach This At School where I chat to lots of best-loved names across radio, TV and sport to find out the things they wish they’d been taught, as they share their lives and stories with listeners.”
The first two episodes of They Don’t Teach This At School with Myleene Klass will be available on Global Player from Tuesday 26 September, with a new episode every Tuesday thereafter.
