"The biggest challenge with starting a new podcast is I knew literally nothing. I’ve listened to a few podcasts. I know what they are, but in terms of producing, coming up with topics, or what apps to use, I had no idea. I met with the team at Podcast.co to talk about helping us design a podcast for the Youth Zone, where to get equipment, and if there was any training available. They went above and beyond to setup the pre-opening podcast series."

'What Manchester Taught Me' is a podcast by HideOut Youth Zone. In each episode, young people from the Youth Zone interview the charity’s founding patrons and business leaders – from across a wide range of sectors – to learn more about what Manchester has taught them.

Advice I would give to somebody who wants to start a podcast is come and meet someone at Podcast.co. Talk to the team, talk about your ideas. I think it’s a good opportunity to raise awareness. For us, we’re all about empowering young people and giving them opportunities they wouldn’t have otherwise.
