We've been working with Audible on several shows - hold tight, they're on their way, we promise! And in January 2016 we sent comedian and travel journalist Dom Joly on a winter break with one helluva twist.
“Dom Joly's Big American Vacation” is an 8 episode podcast available to download on Audible.co.uk. It follows the intrepid Dom, jet-setting around the US of A in search of the weird, the wacky, and the downright creepy. He's been wrestling alligators, taming bulls, and meeting a frozen dead guy up in the windy mountains of Colorado – we kid you not! Can't do that in Tenerife, now can you?
With microphones in both his ears, we recorded every second of his 3 week adventure – sneezes, snores, and the occasional naughty word, along with outrageous characters, wayward sat-navs, and some very uncomfortable situations.
It was perilous at times, Dom nearly lost an arm in the making (pesky alligators), and just about made it home in one piece. So, very soon, you'll be able to hear it all - wishing you’d been there in one instant, and super relieved you weren’t, in the next!
In this iTunes top 10 (!) podcast, produced for the Houses of Parliament, writer and comedian Meera Syal explores the way our country is run day to day.
Granted access to the inner workings of Parliament, Meera walks us down the corridors of power to uncover what really happens at the heart of British government. Over six episodes, we discover how the government is formed, how the laws that shape our daily lives are agreed upon and enforced, and how our leaders are held to account and by whom.
Perhaps most importantly, with the insight of members of the public and key figures within the houses, we discover the ways in which parliament affects your daily life…and how you can affect it.
In autumn 2016, Fresh Air partnered with the National Trust to produce the National Trust Gardens Podcast – taking you behind Britain’s hedges. Over three 25-minute episodes, Head Gardener Alan Power learns the stories and secrets of Britain’s most beautiful heritage gardens, from the people who help to look after them.
We start on Alan’s perfectly manicured home turf - Stourhead in Wiltshire – as the seasons change across this 18th century masterpiece. Then north we go, to Croome in Worcestershire – the ‘first and most-favoured child’ of pioneer gardener Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. And finally to Sissinghurst in Kent – a garden born of romance, society and scandal...
Alongside the three 25-minute episodes, we produced a series of ‘Garden Cuttings’ – 5 minute clippings which focus on teaching the green-fingered amongst you how to recreate National Trust splendour in your own back garden!
The BMW Good Food Ride was a special pull-out in The Observer
The print version featured 100 of the very best organic food producers in the UK, and was accompanied by a series of 5 audio programmes. Presented by Miranda Sawyer, these shows also featured high-profile chefs including Heston Blumenthal.
The podcasts followed a reporter touring the country in a BMW 1-Series, speaking to producers and featuring the food producers in particular regions. It was a great example of how a commercial download can sound just as good as a BBC programme.
As part of our ongoing work for BBC Radio Cross Trails, Fresh Air has produced many of the BBC's biggest drama and entertainment campaigns of recent years.
The trails run on every single BBC radio network, tailoring the content to fit the station. We script, direct and produce the promotions, working with major advertising agencies, and recording with major talent.
They are some of the highest profile campaigns in the UK, and we're very proud of them.
