Hello Hackney Radio, 18 February

Reloaded – Monday afternoons in the Curve Garden, 2 pm

Fresh people, fresh voices, fresh thoughts

We are revising our Hello Hackney podcast format to make it more inclusive.

Following what we talked about at the last Monday afternoon event, two weeks ago, we propose …

  • The podcast group will not have exclusive use of the Pineapple House – we like to have other people around us, so we can draw them into the conversation (if they want to) – fresh people, fresh voices, fresh thoughts, every week.
  • We will drop the structured podcast format, and replace it with open-ended spontaneous conversation with whoever happens to be in the Pineapple House.
  • We won’t have a pre-arranged theme unless we have a guest who can get a good conversation started.
  • We will rename it Hello Hackney Grassroots Radio – but it won’t be live. Instead we will put the minimally-edited recording on our internet radio server – on the following day, presented as-though live. This format has worked for us in the past. Sound quality won’t be as good, but it will be much easier to get the results online quickly, instead of adding to the podcast editing backlog (several weeks at the moment).
  • The podcast episodes will be less frequent, maybe monthly, constructed from the longer recordings.
