Dirty Laundry – Airing The Issues

As a follow up to the Dirty Laundry podcast, we recorded a panel discussion with Hannah Ault of Valentine Clays, Dr. Ben Anderson, lecturer at Keele University, Abi Brown, Leader of SoTCC and Mark Gregory, Chief Economist for UK and Ireland, Ernst and Young. In it the panel discuss the challenges facing our environment, and how some of these issues might be addressed. Thanks to members of our local community, Emma Bailey of Emma Bailey Ceramics, Jerahl Hall from YMCA North Staffs and Tony Jones, for being our guest interviewers

 Making the Dirty Laundry Podcast

We assembled the brilliant original cast, and recorded the drama in January on location in Newcastle-u-Lyme and Middleport Pottery.

Members of our wonderful Claybody Community Company were also able to join us to create the world of Warham’s Pottery.

During the lockdown director Conrad Nelson has edited the episodes with our fantastic sound designer, Andy Partington, and they are now ready to share with you.

The podcast has been made possible thanks to support from Arts Council England, and the Friends of Claybody Theatre.
