Jane Garvey and Fi Glover’s Off Air podcast hits 10 million listens

The Off Air podcast, hosted by broadcasters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover, has exceeded 10 million listens since it was launched by The Times in October 2022.

The award-winning journalists Jane and Fi joined Times Radio in an exclusive deal to present their first daily live news show last year.

Their podcast follows the radio show, so they can say what they really think, without the restrictions of being on air.

A wide range of guests appear on the podcast, who have included Jamie Oliver, Eddie Izzard, Lorraine Kelly, Clare Balding and more.

Jane and Fi also launched their Book Club this year, with special bonus episodes reviewing books hand-picked by listeners.

Jane Garvey said: “Thanks for being there! It’s always such a pleasure to read your emails and know that we’re all part of something daft, meandering, but supportive. It’s a global podcast community!”

Fi Glover added: “It’s a remarkable feat. I’m pretty sure a lot of our listeners are just like us – trying to find time to simply breathe in a busy frantic world so I’d like to personally thank them for adding us to their long lists of things to do. And I’d like to thank those living in far flung exotic beach side locations personally. Have a firm swimsuit packed and ready.”

Times Radio Programme Director, Tim Levell, commented: “Congratulations to Jane and Fi. 10 million listens is an incredible achievement. I know first-hand how well-loved their podcast is: my wife goes around the house listening to it on her phone speakers – preferring their company to mine! They are witty and clever, and the podcast is a daily audio treat.”
