Colin Murray announces new podcast series where every question is left to a game of chance

Colin Murray’s 52 will invite sporting guests to reveal their hand like never before in a new 12-episode podcast series Sponsored by Grosvenor Casinos each episode will be recorded in front of a live audience in venues across the UK

Award-winning broadcaster Colin Murray has announced a daring new podcast series which challenges sporting heroes to a game of ‘52’ where every question is left to chance.

Colin Murray’s 52 is a 12-episode podcast series where sporting guests will answer intimate and revealing questions related to love, life and even time-travelling, from a deck of 52 cards packed full of 52 random questions.

Sponsored by Grosvenor Casinos, each episode will be recorded in front of a live audience in cities across the UK including Sheffield, Leeds, Nottingham, Newcastle, Manchester and Brighton.

From ‘What two minutes of your career would you like to relive?’ to ‘Who would play you in the movie of your life?’, listeners will gain an up close and personal insight into sporting greats such as former world heavyweight boxing champion, David Haye, as well as England international teammates, Chris Waddle and Stuart Pearce, who will be asked to show their hand like never before.

Inspired by a game of poker, guests will answer five questions with a twist from the special 52 card deck, along with a Wildcard question from an audience member where anything could happen.

Colin Murray said: “I’ve always enjoyed taking the interview format and changing its dynamic, and 52 is a step further on that road. It’s going to be unpredictable, different and exciting. But remember folks, it’s important that we all listen to podcasts responsibly.”

The first episode of Colin Murray’s 52 will be available to download across all podcast platforms on Monday 23 March.

Colin Murray’s 52 will be recorded live at the following venues:

  • Grosvenor Casino Sheffield (Monday 16 March)
  • Grosvenor Casino Leeds (Tuesday 17 March)
  • Grosvenor Casino Newcastle (Monday 23 March)
  • Grosvenor Casino Didsbury (Tuesday 24 March)
