Hunter and Ben from Burning Bright Audio asked me to be the executive producer on their series Heartlands, for Times Radio (funded by the Audio Content Fund). I provided a mix of editorial support and production advice on the series, although 99.9% of the credit goes to Ben, Hunter and their brilliant young presenters!
Here’s how they described the show:
Heartlands takes listeners on a journey around Britain painting a picture of what work – in the shadow of heavy industry – looks like in 2022.
From the burgeoning film and TV industry in Glasgow to Amazon associates in Durham, Heartlands uncovers which new industries are thriving and how working culture is evolving. this series shines a light on employment through the lens of 5 young presenters: Sophie, Hugh, Macy, Charley and Che.
