We're fast approaching episode 50 of The Audio Works Podcast and I'm not quite sure how that happened. It's actually the second attempt at running a podcast, the first one was more of a live session with a chat after, but the process of setting up, recording a session, then recording a podcast was way too time consuming. It took a team of three of us and about 6 hours of work, it wasn't sustainable.
The second time around I made it simple. I bought a mic and literally met up with folks and recorded our conversation. So much more mobile and fast, and only required myself to produce.
With any small town you soon find out that everyone knows everyone. Particularly in different scenes, wether that's music, rugby, fitness. These circles are small so you inevitably meet everyone involved.
If you're not involved in these scenes it's easy to not know of their existence at all. I knew that if I simply recorded some conversations with the plethora of interesting people in this town, it would make for interesting listening.
We've had musicians, doctors, business owners, exercise coaches, all sorts of diverse, successful and driven people and on hearing their attitudes and achievements I have pushed myself a little further, which is an excellent bi-product of communicating with them. Northampton is culturally rich, and this podcast is the tip of the iceberg.
So, feel free to give the podcast a listen, and maybe look at some of the guests work too. Let them know where you heard about them and I'm sure they'd love to talk to you.
Thanks for reading (and listening), and please leave a comment if you have any questions or opinions.
Speak to you Friday,
