Last Friday, Transition Free Press editor Charlotte Du Cann spoke to the show’s presenters and producers, James Beecher and Helen Royall (also both active in Transition Stroud), about the launch of TFP’s first edition.
James and Helen asked ace questions about the paper from the content to its principles and how it was funded. I also felt there was time and space to talk and genuine interest in what was being said, which is not the norm on mainstream radio stations! Loved choosing those tracks too . . .
You can download the podcast here (83MB) .The interview itself begins at 6 mins 42 seconds though the whole show is well worth a listen. Throughout the hour you’ll hear some really good quotes (along with some great music tracks).
It’s a big shame that this is one of their last shows. Transition Show will air for the last time on Friday 1st March. James and Helen have said they may revive it in a different form at some point but for now they are calling it a day. For more information on this, see: eepurl.com/uWhyP
So thanks James and Helen for all the shows and wishing you the very best for the future. Big thanks, too, for featuring Transition Free Press on Friday. Here’s hoping we’ll tune in to Transition Show, StroudFM 107.9 again sometime to hear those stories that ‘everybody knows’ but which don’t always go out on air.
