New Discovery: Sliding Doors

What sliding doors moments brought you to where you are today?

3:00 PM GMT+1 on May 31, 2024

    The classic “Sliding Doors” film of the 90s went down in history – we now use the term "Sliding Doors" to refer to those pivotal moments that saw our lives at a crossroads and the colloquialism has become a mainstay in the English language. For Jennie Becker, the host of Sliding Doors podcast, the film was the sliding doors moment that propelled her to start the podcast in the first place and we are all thankful for it.

    Sliding Doors is all about the moments that shaped your life and the decisions that you made to get you there. Jennie effortlessly has empathetic and hugely engaging conversations with her famous guests from Dame Prue Leith to Peter James about moments that took them on the path they are on today. Sometimes humorous, often profound and always thought-provoking, the show is the perfect blend of all the addicting emotional factors that will make you binge all of the existing 101 episodes in the space of a couple of weeks (and we speak from experience).

    What makes the show completely unique too is that the guests Jennie interviews are often surprised by their journeys during the actual recording. While the concept of Sliding Doors is so straightforward, it is not often we get to think about the ‘what ifs’ that could have led us to a different place in our lives and Jennie is an extremely attentive host who seems to always know just the right question to ask. Plus, Sliding Doors also has mini-series within that focus on listener’s stories and their journeys and how their decisions had a rippling effect on their lives.
