Zinc Media Group create 'cunning' podcast

Press Release · London, UK ·

Zinc Media, the award-winning TV and content creation company, has launched the group’s first self-financed podcast - Tony Robinson’s Cunningcast.

The much-loved actor - famous for playing the hapless Baldrick in Blackadder who always had a ‘cunning plan’ - is given free-reign to cover topics from Knighthoods to pies and cancer to the Coronation in his uniquely mischievous, indomitable and witty style.

To be published weekly from Thursday (23rd March) on all major podcast platforms, the launch of Cunningcast is part of Zinc Media’s continued expansion in the audio space, building on an investment in production facilities and creative talent and adding to its proud history of audio successes.
