Podcasting Studios & Fermentation in Liverpool
In episode 43 of the Baltic Triangle podcast we hear from two businesses who used the lockdown period after Covid to re-calibrate their companies and are looking to the future with fresh optimism.
The Fermentation Station is a Liverpool-based food and drinks producer owned by Amy Yarker and Sam Watson, who use ancient fermentation methods to preserve their products rather than pump them with preservatives.
In 2021 they were winners in the Great Taste Awards and they're very confident of more successes as the business grows.
There are an estimated 4 millions podcasts registered worldwide (including this one!) and in the UK 50% of adults have listened to a podcast before - that number is likely to grow in the coming years, which is good news for Clare Campbell and Roy Basnett who've just set up The Podcafe - an audio and video podcasting studio here in the Baltic Triangle on Norfolk St.

Street Artist Sean Webster & City Region Cycling with Simon O' Brien
In this month's Baltic Triangle podcast we're taking a deep dive into cycling and graffiti art in Liverpool City Region.
Bafta-winning actor and presenter Simon O'Brien is the region's Cycling and Walking Commissioner who is no stranger to the podcast. We spoke to him 2 1/2 years ago when he first started in the role with the aim of improving the cycling and walking infrastructure of Liverpool. His role has been expanded to include the whole of the city region and he's as enthusiastic as ever but says we still have a LONG way to go to catch up with other UK cities - however he's determined that we can do it with the right political support.
Sean Webster is a young artist whose work you may well have seen around the Baltic Triangle area and the city centre but not realised he's behind it.
In a short space of time , Sean's career has really taken off. We hear about his artistic journey, his embrace of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) to help to support his work and how he sees his career developing.
Misadventures in Music Podcast
Loved the deep dive they do in this podcast, lots of interesting guests and plenty of substance. The combination of a high profile artist (Ian Prowse) and former BBC radio head (Mick Ord) brings a wealth of experience to the microphone. Well worth a listen.
I was interviewed for the May 2022 Podcast and I'm really impressed how it turned out. I was interviewed about my project in Bosnia for the art book "Bosnian War Posters", by Daoud Sarhandi, and I think the way it's edited and presented is really interesting -- and that's rare from someone who's done hundreds of interviews and is often critical about the way it's usually done.
Mick Ord is a real pro when it comes to producing podcasts and his BBC Radio experience comes in handy. I can highly recommend him and this podcast.

A genuine insight into the people behind Merseyside’s business & cultural sector. Lots of scouse nouse on display.
