Have a listen to me on this week’s Light on Leeds episode! I’m talking to the podcast about my own show Working Hours, you can listen to it here: https://www.lightonleeds.com/episodes/episode-37-simon-treen-working-hours-podcast
There’s not been an episode of Working Hours for a while but they are coming. I will be releasing four episodes next week. First, there will be two episodes released before Western Studios’ 1st anniversary on October, 5th. These episodes will cap off the interviews published within that 1st year of the Studio and gives us a very nice first 20! Following those two episodes, I will be kicking off the second year of Western Studios with 2 more Working Hours episodes being published together after or on the 5th.
There’s much to celebrate with these first 20 episodes; getting nearly 400 downloads, finding over 230 unique listeners and managing to get a pretty good diversity of roles amongst my guests too. It’s been largely luck more than intent in this first year though. I have covered start-ups, public sector roles, professions, artists, teachers, poets, healers and more in these interviews. There are so many more interesting stories and occupations to come yet though, and I’m really excited to hear them.
Remember, if you’re in Leeds or from Leeds you can be on Working Hours, click here to register to appear on the show – leave me a short bio and some ideas of when you can record! I especially want to hear from people on low or poor pay or from any under-represented Loiners. I’d also like to hear any recommendations for people you think should be on the podcast – do you have a local hero who does good work that you’d love to hear interviewed? Or a great employee or employer that you think should be recognised? Tell them to get in touch or let me know about them and I will try to get them on the podcast.
I can’t do this without you Leeds!
