The new podcast will offer an insightful deep-dive into the realities of dream careers.

Jamz Supernova has launched a new podcast. Entitled DIY Handbook, the new project is a continuation of the broadcaster’s DIY Generation series on 1Xtra, through which she talks to young creatives excelling in their chosen fields.

With DIY Handbook, the BBC Radio 1Xtra mainstay, Future Bounce label head and 6 Music Saturday host will sit down with some of her role models. Across eight episodes, Jamz will cover topics like diversity and trauma through to building a successful team and fostering positive work relationships. The aim of the podcast is to inspire and inform aspirational listeners about the challenges that arise in any given field, and offer positive ways of overcoming them. The likes of June Sarpong, Toddla T and Ciara Madden – AKA Body By Ciara – will feature as guests. Listen to a trailer for DIY Handbook below.

“Through a collection of conversations and real-life anecdotes with a range of brilliant business & creative minds, I take the lessons I’ve learned and dissect that experience with people I admire,” says Jamz on the new project. “In a world that praises perfection and overnight success, we’ll aim to be painfully honest, personal and practical! Welcome to my DIY Handbook.”

The first episode airs on 24 May. Jamz will be discussing the art of persistence with Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson. Subscribe to DIY Handbook here.
