Brand New Podcast (“Along The Road”)

post.update-date-new

After months of preparation, I am so excited to finally announce the launch of my brand new podcast, “Along The Road”! It’s been super fun to work on a new project from scratch, and I’ve had some amazing experiences so far.


What is “Along The Road”?


“Along The Road” is a podcast where we talk to a range of interesting and inspiring creators and other individuals to get an insight into their perspective in what they do, and the lessons they learnt along the way.


Each episode is a conversation with a different guest, and the goal is to be able to take something away from the conversations that we can all relate to, and sometimes things we can implement in our own lives.


Where can I listen?


Currently, Along The Road is available on all podcast streaming apps, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Deezer, Pocket Casts, and more. You can click the button below to find it on your podcast app (if your app isn’t on that link, simply search for “Along The Road” on your app and it should come up):



It is also available on YouTube.


How can I (easily) support the podcast?


Any support for the podcast is greatly appreciated, especially since it’s being built from scratch. If you could leave a positive review on whatever podcast app you use, that would be super helpful. This is because positive reviews (especially on Apple Podcasts) help the podcast succeed well in the algorithms of the podcast platforms, as well as giving it credibility to new listeners.


The first 3 episodes


At the launch of the podcast, the first 3 episodes were released.

BBC Radio Suffolk and Norfolk Interview


Kitty Perrin was kind enough to invite me onto her show for young people called "The Social". Angelle Joseph was sitting in on the day, and it was so much fun talking to her about the new podcast and all my other radio projects. I had spoken to her in the past on BBC Belongings, so it was great to catch up! Massive thanks to Kitty and Angelle for organising that, and you can listen to the audio clip below:
