Our latest podcast is based on HIP#203 and we speak to some of the people featured in the paper. Sarah Milne from Hastings RNLI tells us about her dream come true and gives us some water safety tips; we speak to Milly Rowland from Milly’s Nightclub and Kate Rosie from Teddy’s Tinkers as part of our ‘People of Hastings’ series; we hear the story of Ukrainian refugee Anna Derevianko, who has recently arrived in Hastings from Odessa, and speak to Ayah Bourghli from The Refugee Buddy Project about how refugees are portrayed in the media. To top it all we have a song from Tim Hoyte’s new album.

Listen here https://anchor.fm/hastings-independent-press/%20 and get in touch if you have an audio story, soundscape, or performance you’d like us to include in future episodes, or if you have an original song from the Hastings scene. We’d also really appreciate it if you could share the podcast on your social media.
