Have radio, will podcast!

What a day! This morning I attended a podcasting course hosted by Social Brighton (huge thanks to Kerry), with brilliant trainer Cat Rose – The Creative Introvert. In just 3 hours I pretty much had all the tools and knowledge I need to get on with the job of creating our Brighton5 audio experience! I am going on a long train journey with my mum over the weekend so I plan to mic her up and get her talking about the heady days when I was a teenager and she was the punch bag – all in the name of research you understand.

This afternoon, we had confirmation that Radio Reverb is our official broadcast media partner for Brighton5. I am over the moon. The Brighton5 radio show will mix interviews with parents/ carers, experts and teens, sharing stories to help bridge the gap between adults and teens in a digital age. (Comedic hindsight is on its way!) I’ll be popping down to the Reverbathon on the 3rd March with more information. Please to let us know if you want to get involved in the Brighton5 radio show and podcast – we would love to hear your stories.

And what news of our crowdfunder? Last night we had some of the Brighton5 teenage girls over to the house to discuss the plan, script, and schedule. Today, we have just 30 days to make it happen – on the 100 year anniversary since (most) women were first granted the right to vote. Seems like a bloody good omen to me.
