An interesting episode going behind the scenes discussing the challenges of editing a local monthly magazine. In this episode we talk with Mike Barden who has taken on the role of editor for the Reeth and District Gazette. This is a challenging role and Susan and Mike discuss his individual take on it. The conversation ranges from mental health issues, homeworking and Fujitsu, to Monty Python and UFOs. Never a dull moment behind the scenes in the production of the Gazette.
About the Guest:
Mike moved to Reeth with his family in March 2019, after holidaying in Yorkshire for many years and chose to relocate to the dales where they are now involved in the dales community. They couldn't anticipate the challenges of two local floods and now a pandemic to contend with, all within their first year here. Mike has a disability passport and discusses the extra difficulties he lives with on a daily basis. Editing the Gazette has proven to be a challenge that he finds helps to keep his active mind and predisposition to anxiety at bay. As a team leader for Fujitsu he has a high powered and demanding job and yet he also manages to fit in his volunteer editorial role on the Gazette.A busy man indeed.
