It's beginning to look like Lena Dunham has found those extra hours of the day we all crave. On top of the long-awaited arrival of Girls season 5 in 2016, selling a pilot of a new show set amongst second wave feminism in the 60s to HBO, the success of her bestselling book Not That Kind of Girl (now out in paperback, an annotated with Genius as if it were a hot new rap track), the launch of feminist newsletter Lenny, Dunham is now launching a podcast.

Woman of the Hour with Lena Dunham has soft-launched with a 5 minute preview, in which Dunham reveals there will be five episodes, each on a different theme, as well as bonus interviews and radio dramas: "the whole shebang". Coving topics including friendship, work, education, activism, trans stories, shoes, love, sex, dating and deal-breakers, the show has a huge list of personalities for just five episodes.

Author Zadie Smith will talk to Dunham about productivity and four-hour Beyoncé Google-holes, comedy actor Amy Sedaris talks to designer Todd Oldham at his studio, Emma Stone riffs on the word "Dude", and tons more, featuring Janet Mock, Jemima Kirk, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Mara Brock Akil, Grace Dunham, Emily Ratajkowski, Beth Stern, June Squibb, and the promise of even more.

Woman of the Hour with Lena Dunham launches on 5 November.
