Dragon’s Den’s Deborah Meaden makes new show for BBC Radio 5 Live

Deborah Meaden is to host a weekly show for BBC Sounds which will also be broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live each Friday morning.

In The Big Green Money Show, Deborah will be joined by Wake Up To Money’s Felicity Hannah and speak to business leaders about climate change with different guests each week.

Listeners will also have the chance to have their own questions answered. Deborah, Felicity and guests will consider how people might be able to spend their money, whether shopping for food or investing long-term, in planet-friendly ways.

Deborah Meaden said: “Many of the companies I’m involved with are experiencing first-hand the challenges of the transition to net zero – and the effort involved in reducing their planetary impact. They are also navigating their customers’ tolerance for the imperfect.”

“I’m not interested in hearing from the companies who’ve been trumpeting their eco-credentials for years. Those stories have been told many times. Instead, I want to hear about the gritty reality of turning a huge corporation around. I want this to be a podcast that peels back the lid on the difficulties and barriers facing those who want to drive the change; but also enlightens and encourages consumers to embrace companies who are genuinely setting out to reduce their impact.”

Episodes of The Big Green Money Show with Deborah Meaden will be released weekly on BBC Sounds, every Friday for 10 weeks from 4th March and broadcast every Friday on BBC Radio 5 Live at 5am.
