Audio production

Since completing my MA I have worked on a huge variety of audio projects, from live radio to audio drama and plenty of podcasts, too. As my workload has increased, I have accepted less commercial podcasting work in favour of documentary style projects or podcasts for charities or arts organisations.

Dogpeople

 

In late 2022 I was approached by the brilliant working class writer Louise Powell to help her create an audio documentary funded by Durham Culture County. Drawn together from interviews and wildtrack recordings, 'Dogpeople' offers an oral history of Wheatley Hill Greyhound Stadium, a 'flapping' track in County Durham, which was one of the foremost independent greyhound racing venues in the country. Beloved for its tight-knit community, big races and strong betting ring, Wheatley Hill was a staple of working-class County Durham life from the 1930s until its closure in 2019. 

 

This was designed as a pilot episode for a longer podcast series which preserves the oral history of the independent greyhound racing scene, and I'm delighted that Louise has now received Arts Council funding for the longer series so I can't wait to start production on that in the autumn!

 

 
 
Podcasting for organisations


The most recent organisation I have worked with on their podcast is the charity Changing Lives, who approached me at the beginning of 2021 to say that they'd like my help launching Recovery Talks, a friendly and informative podcast about the term 'Recovery' and what it means to people working in the sector and those accessing recovery and addiction services. We wrapped up season four at the beginning of 2023, and are taking a hiatus as the team go through some internal restructuring. It is a genuine pleasure to edit such an important podcast and you can view the latest episode below (click here to start from Season 1, episode 1 - I promise it'll be worth it!).

If you want to start a podcast...

...there are lots of options, and we can discuss which one would work best for you. Just drop me a line below or email me at wordsandpodcasts@gmail.com
