Kat Harbourne and Jenny Eells are the women behind the award-winning Naked Podcast. Catherine Scott reports.
When Kat Harbourne told her friends and fellow BBC Sheffield journalist Jenny Eells she wanted to make a podcast that explored issues around body image she jumped at the chance.
Even when Kat said they, and their guests, would be naked, she didn’t change her mind.
“For me being naked isn’t really an issue but I know that’s not the case for everyone and we wanted to try and find out why,” says Jenny.
Ironically it was Kat who was more bothered about stripping off.
“I don’t particularly like getting naked, so at points I’ve wondered why we’re putting ourselves through this,” she says.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve not felt confident about my body. In my thirties I decided it was time to change this and question why so many of us feel the same way.
“Why are we ashamed of what’s beneath our clothes? Why do we spend so much time worrying what other people think? Why don’t we celebrate the amazing things our bodies are capable of?”
