February is upon us and there are lots of exciting developments afoot. This morning I had the first of, I hope, many conversations about where the podcast is going. We talked about the possibility of a live show, perhaps a series of them, and about sponsorship, advertising, tie-ins with various local organisations and, as usual, tea. We talked tea.
The recent RFO announcements have brought with them a wave of outrage from the arts community, and rightly so. Rest assured that I’ve made it my mission to broach this topic with the appropriate guests, using my podcast as a platform to help keep this conversation as open and transparent as possible.
This week I have three guests coming into the studio to record interviews and some of these won’t even reach your ears for many weeks to come. That is to say, I am now dealing with a backlog of guests and I’m doing everything I can to keep that momentum going so that the podcast gets richer and more exciting as the weeks roll on.
Now, do you have an idea for the live shows? Who would you like to see interviewed? Perhaps you have an act that you think would work as a curtain-raiser or interval piece? Maybe you have a bright idea about the format of the show on the night? Get in touch with me:
