I was asked last month to appear on Norwich’s Future Radio to discuss web design. It was a great experience all round, not only to get out of the house but also to revisit the broadcasting world of my student days.
Business Life On Future Radio
Future Radio’s Business Life is presented by Richard Maun, himself a business coach and writer in the Norwich area. The show runs every Thursday and goes over the Norfolk business scene, bringing in each week a representative to discuss their venture. It’s the kind of show that can only work on a local level; Norwich has such a close-knit vibe that every café, shop or market stall is just a handshake away.
Truth be told I did not know what to expect – would I be quizzed on the latest TechCrunch event? Would I be asked, Blue Peter style, to create a website on-air from a preprepared box of wires? As it turned out, the interview was wholly pleasant. Richard, Anna and I discussed the broad strokes of freelancers’ lives, what it means to design locally and how this whole venture of mine started. All this, and we managed to skirt around the jargon and acronyms unnecessary to most discussions.
…or podcast the interview from iTunes. Please excuse the 3 minute preamble; I first discuss the savoury topics of chilli plants and Y-fronts (we all need our hobbies, right?) before putting on my serious hat. Many thanks to Richard, Anna, and all at Future Radio for the opportunity, as well as Danny Wilson for editing the podcast.
