Vanessa Kanbi to host Word Up! Podcast for BBC Sounds

Word Up!, a brand new weekly magazine podcast series from BBC Scotland, will launch this month on BBC Sounds ,bringing together a lively mix of guests from Scotland’s diverse communities for thought-provoking conversation, discussion and debate. 

Across the ten-part series, hosts, Vanessa Kanbi and Etienne Kubwabo, will introduce listeners to Scotland in all its multifaceted glory. They will talk to trailblazers, unsung heroes, community leaders and under-represented voices from the world of arts and music, sport and activism. From catwalk success and political firsts, to breaking barriers in classical music and club culture, audiences will hear inspiring and challenging stories from people making a difference across Scotland – both behind the scenes and front and centre.
