The Learner’s Voice group has been very busy over the last couple of terms with their new podcast channel ‘The POBcast’. To date, we have had four main episodes with more to come before the end of the year. If travelling over the Easter break and want to hear a little bit from home, just search for ‘The POBcast’ wherever you get your podcasts. The channel is using Spotify as its central platform. Links and bios to our first episodes are below. Thanks to all our interviewees, presenters and teachers for the help this term. Special thanks to our TY sound engineers Gavin Keithley, Oisin Daniels and Hugh Barker for editing each episode so professionally. If you have an idea for an episode just get in touch with any member of the Learners’ Voice group.
