Jane Garvey has worked in broadcasting since 1987. She was the first voice on BBC Radio 5 Live when it opened and presented the station's award-winning Breakfast and Drive programmes with Peter Allen. In 2007 she moved not just to Radio 4, but to Woman's Hour - and discovered she'd have to prove herself all over again. Just as listeners began to adjust to her, she decided she better leave before it was too late. She credits Fortunately - the hit podcast she does with Fi Glover - with saving her sanity.
Fi Glover currently is the voice behind The Listening Project on BBC Radio 4, and My Perfect Country for the BBC World Service. She worked at BBC Radio 5 Live for seven years, hosting shows like Sunday Service, with Charlie Whelan and Andrew Pierce, Late Night Live, and the Afternoon Show, before moving to BBC Radio 4 as the host of Broadcasting House and then Saturday Live. She now 'chunters waspishly along' with fellow host Jane Garvey about fellow BBC talent and their own lives on Fortunately.
Their shared BBC Sounds podcast, Fortunately, which won the Comedy Show of the Year at the Arias in 2018, and a silver Spotlight Award, has been downloaded more than twenty million times.
