In the first episode of the year James Marriott speaks to this month’s cover star Karen Mosley as he takes a look into what’s happening in Sheffield City Centre.

You see, I noticed quite a few people on my social media feeds around Christmas who were in town for the first time after the pandemic and were surprised at how tired and empty some parts of the centre are looking now.

Karen pops her Chamber hat on to give us an insight into some of the projects that are already in the works.

Could a new dawn for Sheffield City Centre be around the corner?

Meet the Policy Pod

Right at the end of January, a new podcast launched called South Yorkshire Policy Pod.

It’s a joint project between Sheffield, Doncaster and Barnsley and Rotherham Chambers, along with the South Yorkshire Mayoral Join Authority, hosted by yours truly.

The idea is to deep dive into an important issue off the back of recent research project work.

The first one has a fantastic panel of expert guests, exploring the question of ‘What can the education and training sectors learn from employers on workforce skills?’

Find it by searching ‘South Yorkshire Policy Pod’ in the app on your device or just drop me a line and I’ll send you the link – my email is below.

How long?

Bit of an age old quandry for anyone looking at getting started in podcasting – what is the perfect length for episodes?

There’s a kind of easy answer to this one: a podcast should be as long as it should be.

I know, I know, that’s a bit of a cop-out, but it is true, because the actual answer is different for everyone.

It depends on a number of factors. Work through these and it’ll help you work out how the equation looks for you and ultimately what your ideal length is.

I’ve narrowed those factors down to six key areas to consider. Find out what they are and work out your podcast length at

unLTD unleashed!

Now things are starting to open up more and more, we’re really looking forward to taking the unLTD Podcast out across South Yorkshire during 2022.

We have plenty of plans, but we’re also keen to hear your stories and ideas for things for us to cover.
