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 charity’s mammoth series, 200 Voices.
This calls for outlining narratives, interviewing some of the candidates, and writing hooks and show notes. Listen below to the episodes for film-maker Sophie Dixon, artist Kurt Jackson, and RNLI Heritage Officer Joanna Bellis. Or hear all episodes here. Series produced by Adventurous Audio. Soundtrack by John Nicholls.
