In May 2020, we launched the brand new Halfway 2 Nowhere Podcast. Featuring artists from across the country, brewers, coffee roasters and more, the podcast follows a number of set themes depending on the audience.
Musicians get taken on their ultimate tour, playing five shows based on some set criteria. We take things right back to the start to understand what made the guys’ pick up instruments for the first time. Hone in on three of their tracks and delve into the story behind them, before finally choosing five tracks for the Halfway 2 Nowhere Podcast Playlist.
For brewers, we kick off by looking at their of their beers, how they are hopped and came to be produced. They then have to, one by one, choose their favourite beer, from the following categories, Lager, IPA, Pale, Stout/Porter, Sour/Saison. Only one per category and they can’t double up on breweries. As always, I ask for five songs for the podcast playlist and we look at what got them into brewing in “Craft Corner”.
Coffee roasters and owners, kick off with three of their blends and where they came from; we close with the podcast playlist and how they got into roasting, and our main feature takes them on their ultimate coffee trip. Five towns or cities, the best coffee they’ve ever had.
