Wonderment from Wiltshire launches today (Friday 23rd April), and will feature a range of guest speakers talking about topical issues and the big stories of today, as well as giving us more of an insight into their lives.
The first episode features Wiltshire Paralympian Louise Hunt, who chatted about her successful tennis career, training during lockdown and levelling the playing field for disabled athletes.
She also talked passionately about being a motivational speaker to young people and what her hopes are for the future post Covid.
Louise, aged 29, who lives in Wroughton, Swindon, said: “I really enjoyed taking part in the College’s new podcast and appreciated the opportunity to share my journey and answer some great questions.”
The podcast is aimed at people of all ages, with an interest in well-known Wiltshire figures and those trying to make a difference.
Keep a listen out for our second episode released on Monday where we talk about mental health and resilience with ex-Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, who survived Novichok poisoning in Salisbury in 2018.
Further podcasts in the next month include Not Your Porn founder Kate Isaacs who we talk to about image-based sexual abuse, also known as 'revenge porn', and regulating the porn industry.
We also chat to Dr Stu Farrimond, author of the international bestselling books The Science of Cooking, Science of Spice and Science of Living and scientist on BBC’s Inside the Factory.
Sonia Simons, Head of Marketing and Communications at the College said: “We are a College & University Centre which stretches the whole of the county, and it has some amazing people with fascinating stories to tell.
“We hope that Wonderment will be of interest to both local people and those further afield who would like to hear these stories from a wide range of backgrounds and interests."
