This week on the Ed and Friends Podcast, Ed and producer Kat celebrate 6 months of the show with some top clips.
A huge thank you to all of our wonderful guests, and thanks to you for listening! We’ll be back next week with another great interview, but if you know someone unusual and brilliant you think Ed should be talking to, why not let us know! You can get in touch with us by emailing on firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Ed & Friends is back and this time he’s with award-winning sound designer Culum Simpson!
Ed and Culum are old school buddies. And Culum went from aspiring actor to talented Sound Designer and has never looked back, creating alarming soundscapes for commercials and charity campaigns for PETA and the National Autistic Society.
Ed and Culum talk about the balance of creativity and concept in Sound Design, quiffs and old times!
The lovely Keith is in the podcast studio for Episode 5, where we go in deep on life as a Police Officer and Hostage Negotiator as well as having a giggle with Giggle Loop improviser Natasha Parrott.
Keith tells us what it takes and what it costs to be a Hostage Negotiator with the Met Police, as well as making us chuckle with tales of roller-discos and going undercover to avoid the wrath of Prince.
We loved having Keith on the podcast. We were hanging on his every word! You can see his improv team, Genre Claude Van Damme and laugh at their particular brand of cinematic comedy by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter.
And co-hosting with Ed this week is comedy co-hort and Giggle Loop chum, Natasha Parrott! As well as being an improviser, she is also on those Text Santa posters with Ed, so she is in your face throughout the christmas period leading up to Christmas Jumper Day on December 18th.
Ed is delighted to have on the podcast this week an actor, musician, improviser, presenter, stand-up comedian and children’s entertainer: Francesca Reid!
Francesca has been performing since she was an eccentrically imaginative toddler. Flanked by a full cohort of imaginary pals she would write great 6/8 word odes where her knack for vocabulary was evident in the brevity of said great works . . .
She also works with the Flying Seagull Project, a charity dedicated to bringing circus and arts-based fun to people in difficult times. For more info or to make a donation, please go to http://www.theflyingseagullproject.com
