Award-winning comedian Josie Long presents her first radio series, in which she aims to explore all of the planet’s wonders, in detail, over four episodes.

In the first programme, the theme is astronomy, with subsequent episodes covering the enlightenment, the animal world, trivia, parents, plants, propriety and grandparents.

Josie is joined by Irish comedian Maeve Higgins and a variety of comedic guests including Robin Ince, Chris Neill, Daniel Harkin, Henning Wehn, Isy Suttie and American broadcaster Jesse Thorn.

Each episode is anchored by Josie and Maeve in the studio, with Josie presenting her essay on the week’s given subject, and Maeve helping with questions and illustrations. The guests help to play extra characters or provide specialist advice.
