As more of her conservatorship experience becomes public knowledge, Britney Spears is the celebrity constantly on our minds at the moment. And, for anyone hoping to gain more insight into not just Britney’s life, but how we treat women in the public eye, look no further than Pandora Sykes’ brand new podcast.
Released last week as part of a documentary series for BBC Radio 4, ‘Pieces of Britney’ contains eight episodes which break down what Britney’s story tells us about sex, politics and the entertainment industry.
Pandora announced the new listen via her Instagram account. She said: “I’ve interviewed dozens of talking heads – lawyers, psychologists, journalists, FreeBritney advocates and veterans of the music industry (some of whom knew her) – to build a sympathetic re-telling of Britney: a C21st pop-icon, who was placed in a 13yr conservatorship from which she is pleading to be released from”.
Pandora, who co-hosted everyone’s favourite podcast ‘The High Low’ with friend and author Dolly Alderton, has spent the last six months working on ‘Pieces of Britney’ alongside producers Anne Isger and Sasha Yevtushenko.
You can listen to the podcast now via BBC Sounds, and each episode is between 37 and 57 minutes long.
