The Moomin Phenomenon
This is a podcast series hosted by actress and producer Lily Collins and comedian and actress Jennifer Saunders. We will be unearthing and exploring the Moomin world and its curious characters to understand how it has become such a vast, worldwide phenomenon. We will be travelling to many Moomin locations around the globe, from a unique treasure trove in the heart of Helsinki, to Tove Jansson's legendary studio, to a celebrated outhouse in the Finnish archipelago, to the homes and workplaces of Moomin-lovers in London. We'll even pop off to Tokyo, Japan! The podcast series is produced by Third Ear...

" Jennifer Saunders, who presents a new five-part series on the phenomenon (actress Lily Collins provides an accompanying audio guide), does not take it too seriously, which is a relief, given that most of the people she interviews are superfans. The episodes on Moomin fans and Moomin branding are okay. The episodes on Moomin philosophy and Moomin creator Tove Jansson are tremendous fun."
