My name is Simon Treen and I am a Leeds based podcaster. I want to help Leeds businesses to find their space in the podcasting and online audio content space.
Got an idea for a podcast but, don’t know where to start? Get in touch. That’s your start!

Spring clean for websites in West Riding! It’s time to refresh this thing again! To redevelop. To regenerate. Hopefully for something much fresher better and bolder. I can’t give you a date for this yet but it’s in the works.

So, these constant in/out lockdowns are very detrimental to me with regards to getting stuff done quickly. I am still working on the show notes and timecodes for Volume 1 of Working Hours and I have now started interviewing guests for Volume 2. I am hoping to get a lot more episodes out this year – I do want to hit 100 guests a year for this show but, I am still a good way off from getting to that many yet. Working Hours is showing steady growth but fortunately the current low numbers allow me to experiment, think and identify what I think are mistakes with the 1st volume.
I’m working with a writer on developing what looks like it will be Western Studio’s 1st dramatic podcast. That’s coming along nicely and I am currently hoping to get that show out in spring or summer this year. I have another couple of podcasts that are in the early stages of development, one will be a film based show and the other a political one. Finally, there’s Muck 4 Brass, a new show that I have great hopes for but, I need to nail down a few more ideas around this one before I really tell you anymore about it.
I continue to be on the lookout for new Leeds based collaborators, clients, audiences, customers and patrons. (As well as guests for Working Hours – email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be on the show.) I would really love to hear from you if:
If you are any of the above then do please drop me a line at email@example.com to discuss ways in which we might collaborate to mutually beneficial ends.
The business still needs to cover its costs and show a profit. I have yet to receive any donations or patrons for the initial show (I believe these will come once series 2 starts and there is more content for patrons to actually shill out for). I am not currently working with any clients and have not, as yet, put out any other shows. I have started to put out more social media content specifically designed to attract podcast clients alongside my regular posts promoting Working Hours.
Once I have started to generate revenue and my overheads are covered any remaining funds will be immediately invested back in to the business. There is still a lot of equipment that I would like to get so that I can expand my offer to clients further. I am also planning on running some larger paid ad campaigns, if and when I can get hold of the funds.
I am excited about this year and who and what it will bring to the business. I am looking forward to getting to the point of getting (hopefully) positive feedback and constructive criticism for Working Hours. I look forward to getting our 1st Patreon supporter in the next few months and to getting our 1000th one shortly after that! I look forward to all my coming shows this year and to maybe even helping you to make your podcast.
