What is the Real Reading Podcast?

In a nutshell, the Real Reading Podcast is a weekly chat about Reading in Berkshire.

But going a little deeper, it’s three people who’ve lived in the town a long time sharing their experiences (mostly) fond memories and talking to the people who make the town tick.

‘Fort Explains It All’ is a segment allows Hugh to go a little deeper on some of the more intricate goings on at both the council and in the Get Reading newsroom.

And the weekly interview brings aims to feature an independent business owner or prominent person in the town. We’ve had a great range of guests in 2018, from Amanda McDonnell at Launchpad to Suggs from Madness talking about his Reading gigs.
