The Sacred #54: Elizabeth Oldfield

The Sacred #54: Elizabeth Oldfield

For our second birthday we have turned the tables and a former guest, Ian Dunt, has come back to interview host Elizabeth Oldfield. 11/12/2019

Welcome to a special second birthday episode! After putting her guests through their paces for the last two years, Elizabeth takes her turn at answering some of the big questions sharing some of her own story. In this episode she talks about her sacred value of relationships, working for the BBC and her reflections from 2 years on The Sacred.

We are really grateful to Ian Dunt, whose episode is still one of our most listened to, for hosting this special podcast. Ian is a British journalist and editor of the political news website,

We are going to be taking a little break over Christmas so this will be our last episode for about a month. We’ll be back in the New Year with our interview with Danny Finkelstein, and our re–recorded episode with Richard Ayoade and Lydia Fox.

This podcast is a project of Theos Think Tank (@theosthinktank) and is hosted by Elizabeth Oldfield (@theoselizabeth).
