Host Sue Perkins said: “I’ve loved making this podcast. I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with some truly amazing people, delving deep into their passions, hobbies and life-long obsessions. I can’t wait for you to hear them.”

“The At Your Leisure podcast with Global is The Lego Group’s first UK foray into the world of podcasts for leisure time listening and a great way to hear about a whole range of passions and pastimes from a host of interesting guests” says Andrea Wilson, brand manager at The Lego Group. “This podcast builds on the connection that we know many people have with building Lego sets, which starts in childhood and continues as many adults enjoy immersing themselves in the world of Lego building as a way to relax and switch off.”
