    Ok, let’s get into it! Today’s guest is Mary Otumahan. Mary set up the social enterprise called RecordShop, which provides a free recording studio programme that aims to make music opportunities accessible to those aged 16 – 25. The RecordShop run's four 10 week projects per year, where participants get the opportunity to create music, attend music workshops and events, and secure work placements.
    Mary’s work has received a number of awards including being named Young Social Entrepreneur Of The Year (2019) by Anjool Malde Memorial Foundation and the Precious Awards.

Inspiring Podcast

I really enjoy listening to this podcast. It’s very casual and I like how the host shares her own personal stories. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the advertisement is so annoying, it’s insane. I skip over it, but even listening to it for .014567 seconds makes me want to scratch my eyeballs out.

@ACWalker620 ,

Better editing needed...

The transitions between the commercials and the conversations are choppy. It’s hard to hear the end of one segment and the beginning of another. A few more minutes in post-production editing will fix that.

Tiffany Ford episode

Good content, but the amount of times she said "like" made it unbearable to listen to.
