Podcasts: Here's The Point!
Thanks to all those who made it to our industry event, Podcasts: What’s The Point. An engaged audience, a knowledgeable and entertaining panel, and a terrific special guest in Edith Bowman made for a memorable night. We shared some of our favourite podcasts, including; No Such Thing As A Fish, The Allusionist, Adam Buxton, and a gem of a download from NFU Mutual, plus we got the story of the award-winning Soundtracking from the host herself. By the end of the evening we’d managed to come up with three answers to the one question we'd asked and hopefully most went away with plenty of new ideas on how their brands can engage with new people on new platforms. Listen to the podcast of the event and request the deck below.

‘Blood on the Tracks’ Podcast
From the feature that first began with Showy with the Zoe…Maple Street Studios now present Cosy with the Brodie. The Lightening Seeds legend was in recently, recording an episode for Blood on the Tracks…and he had his son Riley with him…yes it was him wot the song was written about! The other guests on the show were Nicola Roberts, Nigel Owens, and Doc Brown and there was a lot of music bonding. It was a great episode to record and you can hear it here now!
