Heresy is a comedy talk show on BBC Radio 4, created and originally hosted by David Baddiel, later hosted by Victoria Coren. In the show, the presenter and a panel of guests commit "heresy" by challenging people's most deeply received opinions on a subject, in front of a studio audience. In the fifth series, Baddiel handed over the host's chair to Coren, although he has since occasionally appeared on the show as a guest. The latest, 11th series was broadcast in Spring 2019.

Heresy is a comedy talk show on BBC Radio 4, created and originally hosted by David Baddiel, later hosted by Victoria Coren. In the show, the presenter and a panel of guests commit "heresy" by challenging people's most deeply received opinions on a subject, in front of a studio audience. In the fifth series, Baddiel handed over the host's chair to Coren, although he has since occasionally appeared on the show as a guest.
