I’m Rachel, comedian, podcast creator and trainer.
I spent a decade studio directing Today on BBC Radio 4.
I left the BBC in 2016 to create my science podcast, Level Up Human, now in its second series with The Physiological Society.
As a comedian, the BBC still comes up a lot. Last year I wrote about the BBC pips for The Boring Conference.
Here’s the talk, recreated at the Backyard Comedy Club for An Evening of Unnecessary Detail:
Every year I celebrate Towel Day, an annual celebration on the 25th May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952 – 2001).
On that day, fans around the universe carry a towel in his honour and then relax in the evening with a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
When I’m not gigging or homeschooling my kids, I teach working with the media and podcasting.
