The Tinpod Podcast
Presented by Tinpot Head Honcho Daryl Moorhouse it's called The Tinpod - for obvious reasons.
The idea is to talk to producers from all sectors of the Creative Community - interesting people who make stuff for TV, radio, video, social media, online - who have a point of view and a love of craft.
It's about having interesting conversations about the tools and techniques of production industries. If it's a good conversation, everybody learns something and we all do our bit to make the world a better place.
Well, maybe not the last bit.
But you get the idea.

If anyone was thinking of quitting a job to pursue something they want to do, go after it 100%. You can always go backwards. That desk job will always be waiting for you. If there's something you're even a tiny bit passionate about, go after it 110%.
In episode 09, we speak to financier-turned-photographer Joe Ladrigan about uncovering his latent camera talents later in life, the joy of learning and collaboration and the necessary evil of social media.
There's no one fantastic, perfect job. And as the years go on it becomes about happiness and where you are in your life. The struggle and always reaching for that big gig. If I'm honest, that's bullshit.
