Our favorite Scotsman David Tennant has launched a new podcast and will have some big names as guest stars! ‘Doctor Who’ star Jodie Whittaker and ‘Jessica Jones’ star Krysten Ritter are set to make an appearance on the podcast!
Celebrities are definitely riding the podcasting wave, with comedian Conan O’Brien and his show, ‘Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,’ and Will Ferrell resurrecting his ‘Anchorman’ character Ron Burgundy for ‘The Ron Burgundy Podcast.’ Now, Tennant’s new show, ‘David Tennant Does a Podcast With…,’ makes it debut on Tuesday, January 29.
Georgia Tennant, David’s wife, revealed the news on her Twitter. Check out the tweet below!

The first guest to come on the podcast will be Olivia Colman, who recently earned an Oscar nomination for her work in ‘The Favourite.’ A teaser for the podcast was released on the show’s iTunes page, which is linked in the tweet above.
Other confirmed guests include the iconic Ian McKellen, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Hamm, TBS late night host Samantha Bee, prolific British actor Michael Sheen, and former U.K. prime minister Gordon Brown. I’m no podcasting expert, but I would say that’s a pretty solid lineup for a brand-new show!
Tennant certainly has a lot going on! He was just voted Britons favorite actor to play The Doctor in a new poll conducted by YouGov. 69% of voters decided they enjoyed him the most in ‘Doctor Who,’ followed by Christopher Eccleston with 52% and third Tom Baker with 50%. Whittaker scored a 41%, however, the votes were counted before she was actually seen on screen in the role.
Don’t miss out on ‘David Tennant Does A Podcast With…’ when it debuts on January 29!
