Louis Theroux.

Everyone’s favourite geek interviewer has a new podcast.

By: Alison Thomas

Everyone’s favourite documentary maker hit 50 this year and has taken advantage of the lockdown to look back over his career highlights. In ‘Life on the Edge’  (currently available on the i-player) Louis revisits some of his ground-breaking interviews and introduces us to some previously unseen footage. You can continue to marvel at his skill at playing the inoffensive, faux naive geek, who manages to get even the most difficult subject to open-up.

And while working at home this year he has recorded a new podcast, ‘Grounded with Louis Theroux’, featuring interviews with celebrities including Boy George, Helena Bonham Carter and Miriam Margolyes, all currently available to listen to on BBC Sounds. The new series, featuring actor and writer Michaela Coel, comedian Frankie Boyle and film director Oliver Stone among others, is currently playing on BBC Radio 4. You can never have too much Louis in your life!
