The Echo drudges occasionally get to talk to a few interesting people and some, like Mandy Nolan, are even sophisticated enough to record them. So we thought why not join the party and pop a few of our conversations up as podcasts.

The first brave podcaster we are getting live is Mandy Nolan with her podcast Mandy Nolan’s Echo Chamber.

‘Over the last 12 months so many people have asked me why I don’t have a regular podcast. I wondered that myself too. But I just didn’t know what I wanted to podcast about,’ Mandy explained.

‘Then it occurred to me that at The Echo I speak to so many interesting people each week that I should record our chats. I also have lots of interesting ideas and opinions – so I thought why not make that part of what I do at The Echo every week!’

First podcast goes live

The first podcast is up! It is Mandy Nolan talking with Toni Childs about the importance of communities supporting artists.

‘I am hoping to include interviews, opinion pieces, and comedy,’ says Mandy.

‘Its something to listen to while you are working or in the car. I can’t wait to bring you my chats with all the interesting people I meet every week and help share their stories!’

We currently have the podcast available at Buzzsprout and on Spotify. Sit back and enjoy the ride.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
