Tom Canning

Meet Real Reading Podcast presenter Tom Canning.

Not a journalist Tom is the other original member of the podcast presenting team.

Tom can often be found at the Nags Head at the weekend and is the one to blame for any shoddy podcast editing.

A one paragraph profile

Ale swilling, ground hopping, steam train loving presenter of the Real Reading Podcast. I’ve worked in regional media since the day I left University in 2006.

Favourite podcast moment?

Interviewing Suggs. Hands down. Close second was the world’s smoothest man, Steve Colazzo.

One thing we don’t know about you?

I am the co-founder of Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival which is now in it’s ninth year.

Perfect podcast guest?

Jon Bon Jovi. Sadly he doesn’t seem to be over this way so often so I’ll go for David Jason. Or Ricky Gervais if he’s ever around.
