Jimmy Doherty I’ve been wanting to do this podcast for some time and now it’s a reality. I’ve got some great guests, from well-known faces, to experts in their field. They’ll be chatting to me about how we can all do our best for the environment, and get a bit of the good life along the way. Full of facts, tips and a lot of laughs. Everything from fashion, eating in season, wild swimming… and even viagra honey! Looking forward to you joining me on my farm.
From bug burgers and sustainable football clubs, to viagra honey and foraging fungi, Jimmy’s new weekly podcast will cover all things ecology. A new episode will drop every Thursday, kicking off with Jamie Oliver and Eshita Kabra-Davies.
Episode 1: Jamie Oliver
Friends since childhood, Jamie tells Jimmy about the dismissiveness he faced from other TV chefs at the beginning of his career, post-pandemic nutrition, and seasonal eating.
Find out how Jamie nearly killed Oprah Winfrey (yes, really), how the British food industry can move forward, and how lockdowns affected his relationship with food.
Episode 2: Eshita Kabra-Davies
Did you know that in the UK, approximately £140 million worth of clothing items are sent to landfill every year? Ecopreneur Eshita Kabra-Davies is the founder of ByRotation, the UK’s leading peer-to-peer fashion rental app. Eshita talks to Jimmy about the polluting world of fast fashion, and how we can make dressing a little greener.
Born in Essex, Jimmy’s interest in the natural world led him to pursue a degree in zoology and a PHD in ecological entomology.
In 2003 he set up Jimmy’s Farm, an old dairy farm based just outside Ipswich which had stood empty for 50 years.
The farm is now home to species like giant anteaters, capybaras, guinea pigs, wallabies and many more animals. It’s also a events venue, and has seen acts like Badly Drawn Boy, KT Tunstall and Scouting for Girls all play at festivals.
Jimmy’s been a regular on British televisions for decades, presenting shows like Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast, Food Unwrapped, and Jimmy’s Farm.
He is currently based in Suffolk, and lives with his family and Irish terrier, Whiskey.
On Jimmy’s Farm launches Thursday 27th January 2022.
