This month’s edition of the Sound Women podcast is a celebration of comedy, written and presented by comedian and actress Penelope Solomon.

In this episode, Penelope talks about the BBC’s upcoming sitcom revival, catches up with the founder of Funny Women, Lynne Parker and discusses the do’s and don’ts of comedy with comedian Samantha Baines and journalist Karen Glaser. If you’re an Ab Fab fan, you’ll love Nicki Bannerman’s chat with the legendary Helen Lederer. And be sure to have a tissue at the ready for Penelope’s very moving tribute to the late, great Victoria Wood.
