Alice Fiennes & Poppy Damon

Co-creators, hosts, producers

Alice Fiennes and Poppy Damon are the founders of Furrowed Brow, a London-based podcast production company. Together, they produce compelling journalism and powerful, crafted narratives. Between them, they’ve interviewed a murderer in an El Salvadorian prison, investigated scam spiritual guides in Paris and uncovered a conspiracy theory on TikTok. They’re interested in all things macabre, spooky and downright bizarre. 

Poppy and Alice previously made “Murderabilia“, a six-part investigation into the underground trade in true crime objects, including items once owned by serial killers. This series was produced for Audible, and was selected by both the NME and the BBC as one of the top ten new podcast series of 2019.

In 2020 they were shortlisted for the Whicker Radio and Audio Funding Award (RAFA), for a story about online super sleuths.
