Story Scouting for the RNLI’s daily podcast series ///
By 2024, the RNLI will have been saving lives at sea for 200 years. To commemorate this, I have the privilege of unearthing a rich variety of stories for the RNLI’s mammoth podcast series, 200 Voices.
200 episodes will be released – one a day – in the run-up to the RNLI’s bicentenary in 2024. The series salutes the courage of lifesavers past and present, some of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice.
It celebrates the fundraisers who give up their time to ensure that the charity can go on saving lives. And it looks ahead, revealing how tech and innovation are making the RNLI fit for the future.
Hear from the rookie volunteer thrown into a 24-hour rescue on his first time out. The crew member called away from her own wedding. And the sailor who overcomes cerebral palsy to raise crucial funds.
The audio sting (above) combines elements such as crew shouts and radio static to immerse listeners into the world of volunteers about to launch. Mixed by Richard Adams at the RNLI.
The series is produced by Adventurous Audio. Series soundtrack composed and performed by Jon Nicholls.
