It was great being able to chat with Jerry Padfield this afternoon over the internet about how community radio is a useful way to help with mental well-being and social connection. Drawing on Jerry’s experience supporting the A Space to Speak Your Mind programme on SourceFM, Jerry shared his thoughts about how community radio has to follow a unique path which is inclusive, accessible and based on principles of creative participation. Jerry shared his experience as a studio manager with Source FM in Falmouth, and as a PhD researcher with the University of Falmouth. Jerry is a supporter of the Radio Studies Network, and is soon to launch Be Your Own Radio, as a resource for making your own podcasts. We used Cleanfeed to connect and record our audio.
