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 email@example.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
This week we have a genuine explorer on the podcast! And Ellie Grice! You know, from Giggle Loop!
Alec Greenwell, as well as being one of Ed’s oldest and dearest friends, is also one of two madmen who braved polar bears, wolves and frostbite as they attempted to retrace the 1938 Arctic expedition of legendary British explorer David Haig-Thomas. On foot!
Alec tells stories of food, pain and danger. And Ed mainly sits there, awestruck.
Co-hosting and equally struck with awe is Ed’s Giggle Loop cohort, the lovely Ellie Grice! As well as being one of a three-part comedy group with Giggle Loop, a two-part comedy duo with Red Beard, she is a solo renaissance lady and comedian on particularly good behaviour.
Episode 2 of Ed & Friends! Ed meets up with old friend and founder of Foyle Fireworks, Serena Foyle.
Serena Foyle is a Pyromusical producer with a unique approach to combining music with fireworks. Serena trained with a Russian concert pianist before going on to Edinburgh University to study Classical music and later went on to study Music Production at the London School of Sound.
Foyle Fireworks was created in 2012 as a Pyromusical production company in response to Serena Foyle’s passion for designing more artistic fireworks displays, that are created with equal emphasis on both music and fireworks. More info at www.foylefireworks.com
Serena and Ed talk about blowing things up, the future of the job and Ed even quizzes Serena on her History of Art knowledge.
