Some of what we worked on in 2021
Our six-part production for Audible - Philippa Perry's Siblings in Session - was named one of the best podcasts of 2021 by The Times. The psychotherapist Philippa Perry sits down with a different pair of siblings each episode to tease out what might or might not be working in their relationships.
For New Writing North, we made In Our Element a ten-part series about a poet's enquiry into Climate Change, led by Linda France. It went out on community radio stations around the country and online to mark COP26 and featured poets and activists from around the world. It was funded by Arts Council England and the Audio Content Fund. Also for New Writing North and funded by Arts Council England 8-part Write Your Novel was launched to give developing writers a toolbox of skills to help with their writing. Yvonne Battle-Felton explores different techniques with a leading writer in each episode as well as providing a writing exercise to work on.
In collaboration with Historic England and eight writing development agencies across England, we made 9-part High Street Tales - a series of produced short story readings and a bonus montage feature celebrating the High Street.
Soon to be released - for Hodder Studio we made a 5-part series about deepfake pornography with the journalist Michael Grothaus to accompany his new book Trust No One.
In the sponsored podcast space, we are producing Of Spice and Men, sponsored by Tuk In Foods - a frank and funny podcast where listeners get to eavesdrop on the meandering conversation of three friends.
