Matt Levett Podcast Live

In a recent RE lesson, we all got the chance to imagine the questions we would want to ask a Christian. There were some great questions; what is heaven like? / if you pray for something will it happen? / what’s your favourite parable? / should you forgive everybody?

In this podcast, we put youth worker, Matt Levett, on the spot and get him to give his best responses to those questions

Matt is a larger than life character who only became a Christian because he fancied a girl who went to Church but has gone on to lead projects helping street kids in Guatemala for over 25 years.

In this podcast Matt and I really do try to understand what’s important in life and what isn’t. And he tells some great stories too!

Matt Prittchett Podcast Live!

Matt Prittchett

Imagine having to be funny everyday. Matt Prittchett is ‘Matt’ the Daily Telegraph’s cartoonist and everyday he has to produce a cartoon for the front page. He talks about the creative process that he goes through each day to get to the final version.

Matt talks about his family, his grandfather was one of the best short- story writers of the last century, his dad was a telegraph columnist and still helps out with the wording on his cartoons, and his sister is a comedy writer for sketches for Miranda and others.

Matt also talks about being invited to lunch at Buckingham Palace, receiving a letter from the Prime Minister and why he wanted England to lose in the semi- final of the World Cup in 2018.

Stuart Dunn Podcast Live!

Having grown up in Shrewsbury, Stuart’s dream as a teenager was to be a football commentator on his home town team. Now in his 40’s he has commentated on over 1,000 games for Shrewsbury Town on Radio Shropshire. He has seen them promoted, relegated and play at Wembley three times. In this podcast we talk all things football, of course, but also about how you make your teenage dreams come true.

It was great to talk to Stuart and, having had a career as a journalist and in radio, he has a natural ease in front of the microphone.

I learnt a lot from him in our conversation which you can download here:

Introductory Podcast Launched!

Hi everyone!

Just to say that I’ve launched my first podcast, which is a bit of an explanation of what “Talking Teenage Life” is going to be all about, in case you didn’t know! It includes some clips from interviews I’ve already done – I’ve currently got four that I’m finishing editing and one that it uploaded and will be available from next Sunday – 3rd March.

Now although I’ve uploaded the podcast today I have to wait for the nice people at Apple and iTunes to approve my podcast before you can find it there. It will hopefully be available soon, so keep an eye out for it so you can then subscribe.

However, if you keen to hear it now, then you need to click on the link below to get a sneaky early preview:

https://anchor.fm/rose-courteen/episodes/Introductory-Episode-e39uhn/a-aas7od

Please do let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your feedback and, as it’s my first attempt, I am sure there are loads of things that I could improve on.

So here we go – let’s get talking teenage life!

Introduction to “Talking Teenage Life”

Thanks for joining me!

So we are now up and running and I’m really excited. I’ve managed to get some fairly basic podcasting equipment together and I’m learning the ropes with editing. I’ve got a pair of headphones, a couple of mics, a mixer and I’ve downloaded some software to make the podcast happen.

What could possibly go wrong!

Most importantly, I’ve found some guests willing to talk to me about their teenage years.

And what a fascinating group I’ve found to be in my first, few podcasts.

I’ve been talking to a lady who became the first ever female President of the Lawn Tennis Association. She was on court to present Andy Murray with his Wimbledon trophy!

Then I met the lady who started out as a barrister and ended up on children’s TV. She became famous as Tiswas’s phantom flan flinger – I know – I’ve never heard of it either but my parents were hugely impressed that I’d interviewed her!

Throw in an interview with a radio commentator who has already covered over 1,000 games for his favourite team, plus a girl in her twenties who is about to head off on an African adventure for a year, and you can see why I’m excited to share these stories.

So here is my introductory podcast that will get you into the feel of what they are all about. Click on the link below to download the introductory podcast:

You will find all my podcasts as a blog on my website, but better than that why not subscribe through your normal podcast provider.

I’d love to hear you feedback and ideas too by the way.

Hope you enjoy listening to my guests and I “talking teenage life!”

Bye

Rose
