The live Sounds Like Life experience

Live from Sadleir House, Sounds Like Life braved a performance in front of a live studio audience. Part of Peterborough Independent Podcasters Pints & Podcasts pub night, I joined a number of other vulnerable podcasters getting onto the stage to lay our podcasts bare for all to see.

I selected some sounds from the past year that I felt had some significance to the evolution of the show. I chose the first sounds I played on Sounds Like Life when it was a Trent Radio show, and some various pieces that stood out in other ways.

I also spoke about where this show came from, and how I think about it. In dwelling on those thoughts and where I’ve come from, I think I’ve come to the conclusion that this radio show and podcast was something I did when I was going through some emotional turmoil. It was a meditative way of considering my life and what was important to me.

I feel like I need it less now. But I still love doing this.

I think I’ll need to reinvent the show in some way.
