Each week Victoria Coren Mitchell will be joined by a different guest, using cars as a vehicle to share memories and take a comic look at life, love, sex, work, childhood, adulthood and adventure.
At the heart of the show is an exploration of what cars symbolise to women today, including freedom, power, refuge, novelty and familiarity. Her first car, her worst car, her favourite car, the journeys she's made, the journeys she hasn't, the people she's met en route...
Recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC Radio Theatre, members of the public are drawn into the conversation too, encouraged to consider their own cars and the memories they've facilitated - be it driving to a first job, doing the school run, picnic trips in the family campervan or the rude things they've shouted in traffic.
Covering everything from guests' cherished memories - perhaps of childhood holidays in a parents' car or the people they've met on their travels - to the distinctive exhaust sound of a TVR Cerbera, Women Talking About Cars hopes to offer a fresh and funny new perspective on the lives of some amazing women.
