Finally, it’s here! We are delighted to release the first episode of the Symposium podcast, recorded at Glasgow Women’s Library in June! Whether you attended the event or not, this will be a great opportunity to (re)listen to some great talks, and to hear some exclusive interviews from some of our guest speakers and from the series founder, Laura Rattray herself!
This first episode will give you an idea of the content of our series, and serve as an introduction to the rest of the podcast. We hope you enjoy it, and look forward to hearing your thoughts about it!
None of this would have been possible without our podcast experts, Mark Cunningham and Jamie Loggie, who recorded, edited, and masterminded the production of these episodes. Read on to find out more about their work!
A word from the creators: Mark Cunningham and Jamie Loggie
Hello, Mark and Jamie here!
Our audio content company, Wheezy Whispers, recorded and produced the Transatlantic Literary Women Podcast.
Our main focus is creating and running podcasts for Scottish arts organisations, businesses and charities. We capture the events, stories and soundscapes of these marvellous institutions and turn them into something that expands their content marketing strategy and helps them engage differently with their ever increasing digital audience.
However, we also enjoy working on radio programs, documentaries, oral histories, soundscapes and more!
We are also currently developing the SWC Podcast with the Scottish Writers’ Centre. We’re creating an audio collection of masterclasses, interviews and performances, all from events brought to you by the Scottish Writers’ Centre. You might hear a mention or two of this in our TLW podcasts.
We actually first met Marine and Saskia at an SWC event and subsequently, we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the TLW team. We are now excited to say that we’re bringing the TLW podcast series to your ears!
Not only is the TLW podcast our very first public podcast which makes this a special one at that. But moreover, we’ve been supported and treated wonderfully by the TLW and their superb work is something that really deserves to be archived and experienced again.
Also, we must give a personal thank-you to Marine Furet for keeping us updated, contributing and helping to coordinate this podcast series.
We’re seeking to emulate what our favourite radio stations and podcasts provide for their listeners: comfort, escapism, excitement, understanding, new perspectives and that feeling of having spent your time in the best possible way – all for a Scottish audience.
We want to connect with this Scottish audience, to have something that goes beyond the radio dial or the subscription button so instead of this audience outgrowing the content created, we grow together.
We can’t wait to see your feedback and there’s nothing left to say but thank you and happy listening!
Mark & Jamie
