Podcasts for the Coronation

12:43 PM GMT+1 on April 30, 2023

May is just around the corner, and it’s a hectic one. Local Elections across the country take place next Thursday, two days before the King’s Coronation in London. Then three days after that the Eurovision Song Contest kicks off in Liverpool, followed by the BAFTA Television Awards the day after! 😓

There’s a number of podcasts covering the Coronation. ITV News has launched The Royal Rota, brought to you by their Royal Editor Chris Ship, whilst The Daily Mirror has Pod Save The King by Ann Gripper and their Royal Editor Russell Myers. Meanwhile The Royal Parks Coronation Podcast will look at the role the Royal Parks have had in the Coronations of the past and what preparations are underway for the upcoming one.

For an insight into why Coronations happen in the first place, listen out for History Hit’s Gone Mediaeval podcast, which did a special episode on that very topic. And Tony Robinson’s Cunningcast had a look at surreal Coronation traditions, such as why the King uses a sceptre and orb for the ceremony.

In a preview episode of the new Pod Save the UK podcast, which launches properly next week, the Pod Save America team talk to PSUK’s Nish Kumar and Coco Khan and give their own views on the Royal Family.
