About the podcast
Each episode discusses a topic of interest in the borough with help from different guests. The host of the podcast is Cllr Jim Millard, who is the borough’s Tenants' Champion and an actor.
Podcasts will be no longer than 30 minutes in length, with many being under 15 minutes. Podcasts are a new way for the Council to share information with residents - they are easy to listen to and allow you to absorb information whilst doing other things, such as getting ready for the day, travelling to and from work or exercising.
