FOR EPISODE 4 I SPEAK TO BECKY RIDDICK, WHO IS A RESIDENT ARTIST AT "pARTicipate" WHICH IS AN ART GALLERY/WORK SPACE IN THE RIVERSIDE MALL IN SHREWSBURY TOWN.

WE TALK ABOUT BECKY'S JOURNEY, BECOMING AN ARTIST, WHAT BECKY'S INFLUENCES ARE AND WHAT EVENTS SHE HAS COMING UP. BECKY TELLS US ABOUT A NUMBER OF HER PIECES, INCLUDING A PAINTING OF A VERY FAMOUS SINGER THAT SHE CREATED AND WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT. WE ALSO TALK ABOUT WHAT "pARTicipate" ACTUALLY IS AND HOW THE COMMUNITY CAN GET INVOLVED WITH THE MANY, MANY GREAT THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON THERE. 

ALSO I SOUND LIKE BARRY WHITE....

EPISODE 2,

I GET TO SIT DOWN WITH GREAT GUY, CHRIS SCHURKE, A GUY WITH NO FEAR AND A GREAT EYE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY. HIS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT CALLED "SHREWSBURY FROM WHERE YOU ARE NOT" IS VISUALLY STUNNING. HIS BLOG IS A FANTASTIC READ TOO, IT ALLOWS YOU TO FOLLOW HIM ON HIS ADVENTURES.

WE TALK ABOUT...WHY?! WHY SCALE UP THE SIDE OF A BUILDING, IS IT SAFE? CHRIS' GOALS AND SOME OF HIS MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES WHILST ROOF-TOPPING OR EXPLORING ABANDONED  BUILDINGS.

CHRIS WAS A GREAT GUY TO INTERVIEW AND I APPRECIATE GETTING THE CHANCE TO TALK TO HIM. HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS.
