A brand-new community-based podcast for Islay & Jura launched back in August of this year. The small team of Islay based volunteers produce an episode a month celebrating all Islay & Jura has to offer.

Episode one, launched in August featured Glen Roberts & Jolyon Thurgood among others discussing their plans for the podcast and what we can expect in the coming month, followed by pre-recorded interviews from Brendan O’Hara, Ian Gibson and Ella Edgar. Episode two, titled ‘Islay Resilience and A Trip to India’ featured just that. While episode three released in November featured Holiday Homes Islay’s very own Tom O’Farrell as their latest volunteer along with a discussion about paths from the Islay Community Access Group and music from the wonderful Islay Sessions 2020 performers run by The Fraser Shaw Trust.
