Danny Baker is a broadcaster, journalist, podcaster, record collector, raconteur and screenwriter. The Treehouse is Danny’s twice-weekly podcast, helping to tip the internet on its ear. Alongside Louise Pepper, Danny takes six core subjects each episode to lead and follows endless trajectories of original thinking, but with no agenda, no spin. Existing purely for the audience, it’s a warm universe where nothing matters. He is also the co-host, alongside Gary Lineker, of podcast Lineker & Baker Behind Closed Doors, where each episode the two discuss, dissect and reveal hidden gems about the beautiful game.
Danny has written on a plethora of entertainment shows including Top Gear and TFI Friday but in 2015 – alongside Oscar nominee Jeff Pope – he wrote the script for the much loved BBC Two series Cradle to Grave. The series starred Peter Kay and was based on Danny’s first book, Going to Sea in a Sieve). A prolific writer and raconteur, the second and third volumes of Danny’s autobiography Going off Alarming and Going on the Turn follow his extraordinary life through the music, journalism, television and radio, and most beloved of all, tales from the Baker clan.
These incredible experiences led Danny in a new direction when he toured his first live show, Cradle to Stage. This was followed by the equally successful show Good Time Charlie’s Back. Danny’s career has been as broad and fascinating as his interests and passions.
