Join Jules at the 70th Anniversary party of Age UK, where they launched their Platinum Appeal.
The party was held at The Museum in Shrewsbury. Jules enjoys conversations with Telephone Buddy Lynn, Chief Exec Heather, Katherine and Angela. All of whom talk so passionately about the great work they put in to make the lives of the elderly a much better place.
Thank you for inviting us to your stunning event and we at the Biscuit wish you greatest luck for this appeal and we encourage our listeners to get involved.
For their first day recording at Biscuit Studios in The Parade Shopping Centre, AL and Jules decide to make it all about about the Parade.
The show is opened by AL's son Timmy, warmed up by the Biscuiteers, then we speak to a couple of traders from the Parade. Gill from Beadles and Mike from Salop Technology.
Then we finish off with the great and powerful Stan Sedman who teaches us the history of the building. The old hospital has an amazing and truly fascinating history, which Stan expertly guides us through.
Thank you to everyone that has been so accommodating, including Laura and Rich from Lefevre Chocolate for our Xmas choccies, Tat Efby for giving us some brilliant artwork for the studio and of course the guys at the Parade for letting us do our thing on your beautiful premises
We were lucky enough to go to the Monopoly launch at the Dana, where we got to interview a few people including: Graham Barnes (6 Star PR), The ladies from Shropshire Cat Rescue, Lauren Watkins (The Dana Prison) and Naomi Atkin (Lingen Davies).
We also got to speak to the Mayor, Phil Gillam while he played the first ever game of the Shrewsbury Edition of Monopoly.
Thanks to everyone that spoke to us, we made some great content I'm sure our listeners will enjoy.
"Crumbs" is our new way of sharing our "in the field" interviews, short snippet shows that you can quickly enjoy :)
Local author joins AL and Shane this week on the Shrewsbury Biscuit. Steve has been writing for many years. He's had his highs and he's had his lows and we learn a bit about Steve's career. How a post-it note changed his career, how a last grasp throw of the dice gave him added determination and now how Steve is helping aspiring writers.
We love talking to creators on this show and Steve is one of the most determined creators that we've interviewed. He wanted to be a writer and by jove that's what he became. Join us as we delve into the brilliant mind of Steve Palmer

We don't just salivate over microphones (well we do a bit!) I try to find out more about Lea and what drives him. We discuss some of the do's and don'ts of podcasting, what Lea does and doesn't do on his show too.
We discuss how the people of Shrewsbury have a lot of proud for their town. Whats going on in the town? We discuss that too, with a huge shout out to Shrewsbury Market Hall, who need your help! Listen out for why, on this weeks episode!
