Why do we stick with the people we love? In new Radio 4 podcast, You’ll Do, comedians and real-life couple 2016 Funny Women Awards finalist Catherine Bohart and 2015 Funny Women Awards runner up Sarah Keyworth will be joined by celebrity guests each week to explore relationships and their many forms.
Launching on BBC Sounds next week, You’ll Do is a weekly podcast celebrating the nitty-gritty, the ups and downs, and the peculiarities of building a life with other people.
Couples joining Catherine and Sarah include Nish Kumar and Amy Annette; MC Harvey and Mia Poole; 2014 Funny Women Awards winner Jayde Adams and Rich Wilson; Ed Gamble and Charlie Jamison; 2004 Funny Women Awards winner Zoe Lyons and Sindy De Jong; Paul Sinha and Oliver Levy; Vicky Pattison and Ercan Ramadan; Deborah Frances-White and Tom Salinsky; and Joel Dommett and Hannah Cooper, as well as Joe Lycett talking about single life.
Catherine Bohart says: “#couplesgoals make us feel like we’re doing love wrong. Sarah and I love each over and at this point if we were to break up, the admin would be a nightmare. But if we did, we’d both cope. She’s not my soulmate, she’s who I choose to spend my life with and sometimes that’s romantic. It can also be difficult, boring, frustrating and repetitive. We want to talk about the reality of relationships, not the idealised version you see on the internet. Thankfully, a bunch of people were open and generous enough to tell us about how they make love work and it was really fun, so I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we did!”
Sarah Keyworth says: “We just wanted to make something that reassures people that their relationship is not unusual just because it’s not the picture perfect rom-com version of love. Love is hard. Mainly it’s bickering and farting and bickering about farting.”
You’ll Do will be available on BBC Sounds from 31st March, updated weekly with each new episode featuring a different couple.
