Sue Perkins, The LEGO Group and Global Player create new podcast

A new podcast from The LEGO Group, aimed specifically at adults is launching to explore the world of celebrity hobbies, pastimes and passions.

What hobbies keep the stars entertained? What pastimes have these famous faces nurtured since childhood or picked up over lockdown?

Comedian, broadcaster and author Sue Perkins aims to find out in At Your Leisure, a new podcast from The LEGO Group and Global Player.

Over 10 episodes guests join host Sue for a chat about their hobbies, which some have developed into remarkable careers from childhood pastimes while others have newly discovered passions.

Guests include author and Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain; award-winning comedian, author, DJ and podcast host John Robins; Capital Breakfast host Roman Kemp; hotly-tipped comedian Maisie Adam; Smooth Breakfast presenter Jenni Falconer; Guinness World Record holder, professional stunt driver and British karting champion driver Jessica Hawkins; Radio X Drivetime host Johnny Vaughan; rapper and TV personality Big Zuu; and Billy Monger, a double amputee junior racing driver.

Episodes of At Your Leisure will be released across November and December 2021 on Global Player, with episodes 1 and 2 featuring Nadiya Hussain and John Robins, released next week, commencing 15 November.

Host Sue Perkins said: “I’ve loved making this podcast. I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with some truly amazing people, delving deep into their passions, hobbies and life-long obsessions. I can’t wait for you to hear them.”

“The At Your Leisure podcast with Global is The LEGO Group’s first UK foray into the world of podcasts for leisure time listening and a great way to hear about a whole range of passions and pastimes from a host of interesting guests” says Andrea Wilson, Brand Manager at The LEGO Group. “This podcast builds on the connection that we know many people have with building LEGO sets, which starts in childhood and continues as many adults enjoy immersing themselves in the world of LEGO building as a way to relax and switch off.”
