Any Stupid Questions?
About This Show
Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you do't have to.
Each week, Danielle Ward is joined by two comedians and an actual expert in something important, who will field the basic and/or obvious questions you somehow never got around to asking until now. It'll be like how a parent talk to a five year old, but with a bit more swearing and a whole lot more facts.
Danielle Ward is also the host and creator of the Radio Academy Award-winning podcast Do The Right Thing; the producer is Ed Morrish, who produced Danielle's Radio 4 panel show Dilemma, hosted by Sue Perkins.

Any Stupid Questions about... Defence?
Nov 5, 2017
Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you don't have to.
This week, host Danielle Ward is joined by Peter Felstead, the editor of Jane's Defence Weekly, to ask questions about the military and defence. Danielle is joined by comedians Ahir Shah (Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2017) and Athena Kugblenu (BBC New Comedy Award finalist).
Please note that this episode includes sensitive information about how well "we" (Britain) would do in an international conflict, so please do not play it to Kim Jong-Un.
Questions asked and answered include:
- Which countries could Britain beat in a war?
- Is having nuclear weapons useful, or is it just dick-swinging?
- Would it kill the Russians to say anything nice about Britain's aircraft carriers?
...so if you've sort of been guessing the answers based on a gut feeling, why not listen and find out for sure? All our guests are on Twitter, so go and say hello - @PFelstead_JDW, @AhirShah, @AthenaKugblenu, and Danielle is @captainward.
