    The QuaranTea Break Podcast is back - the socially distant tea break with some extraordinary people. Host Simon Ward once again chats remotely with some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment to find out how they're coping, what they've been doing and what they've been watching.
    Mark Watson and Michael Chakraverty dial in to chat to Simon in this wonderful remote conversation. They chat about the lockdowns and the recently announced roadmap, being on two shows that have kept the nation entertained this past year (Taskmaster and Great British Bake Off) and why they started a podcast without ever meeting IRL first.
    And on the subject of that podcast, Simon finds out all about Menkind, which is their own brilliant podcast that takes a deep dive into modern masculinity. Do check it out. You can listen to it right here.

    The QuaranTea Break Podcast is back - the socially distant tea break with some extraordinary people. Host Simon Ward once again chats remotely with some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment to find out how they're coping, what they've been doing and what they've been watching
    It's the third episode in season 2, and DJ and broadcaster Dev Griffin joins Simon for a remote conversation. He talks about moving from BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1xtra after 18 years to join Heart, and what it has been like broadcasting throughout the entire pandemic.
    Dev is such a warm, funny guy, and he’s so honest about how he’s coped with the past year, particularly about moving jobs during lockdown. I also finally get something off my chest that has been burning inside me for years – yes, for the second episode IN A ROW, I manage to weave Strictly Come Dancing into this podcast.
    If you somehow don’t do so already, you can catch Dev’s weekend radio show on Heart every Saturday and Sunday, 12-4pm. It’s like spending the best afternoon in a pub with a really good friend – two things (pubs and friends!) we all miss right now.

    Ep 14: Simon Rimmer – talking being a restauranteur during lockdown, filming Sunday Brunch during the pandemic and his TV picks

    The QuaranTea Break Podcast is back - the socially distant teabreak with some extraordinary people. Host Simon Ward once again chats remotely with some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment to find out how they're coping, what they've been doing and what they've been watching.
    In this second episode in season 2, restauranteur, chef and broadcaster Simon Rimmer joins Simon for a remote conversation direct from his home kitchen! He talks about his two major pandemic experiences – being on Sunday Brunch during the early days of lockdown and how he’s coped with being a restauranteur during the most disruptive time his industry has ever faced.
    And yes, we of course talk about pandemic Strictly Come Dancing.
    Simon has been on my podcast wish list from day one (not just because he’s a Liverpool fan, but that helps!). He didn’t disappoint. Funny, honest… and he predicted Liverpool would win the league (this was recorded before the Burnley game, so please forgive our January optimism *SAD FACE*). Do also check out Simon’s podcast, Grilling, which features great conversations with legends from the world of food.

    The QuaranTea Break Podcast is back - the socially distant teabreak with some extraordinary people. Host Simon Ward once again chats remotely with some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment to find out how they're coping, what they've been doing and what they've been watching.
    In this first episode in season 2, It’s A Sin star Callum Scott Howells joins Simon for a remote conversation to chat about the show and loads more. This show does contain spoilers for It’s A Sin episode 1. If you’ve somehow not caught up with the wonderful Russell T Davies drama on Channel 4, here are the time codes to skip – 33:12-41:05.
    Callum was such an incredible guest, and I hope you love this episode as much as I did making it. He’s a joyful soul, and he has such an incredibly bright future ahead. The full series of It’s A Sin is also available on All 4 now. Devour it

    We’ll be back very, very soon (don’t go anywhere – literally)…

    Hey TQBP listeners! I really hope you’ve enjoyed the first 12 episodes of the podcast so far – the feedback you’ve given us since the start has been incredible.
    Anyway, just popping in for a quick service announcement/out of office. We’ve very excited about a brand new run of episodes coming soon, and some of the guests we’ve got lined up soon are quite incredible. So please don’t go anywhere (literally – it’s much safer that way).
    For updates on the new batch of episodes, plus one or two special episodes, please make sure you’ve subscribed on your podcast provider of choice, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook – the handles for all of them are @QuaranTeaBreak. And if you’ve enjoyed the podcast so far, a review of five stars in a row goes a long way.
    See you very soon x
