A new podcast is taking the digital world by storm! Humans of The Fed, a twice-monthly show brought to you by our Fundraising, Marketing and Communications Director, Raphi Bloom, and Communications and Digital Lead, Robert Marks, has clocked up more than 1,500 listeners since launching in September, and has become a must-listen for staff, relatives, volunteers, and anyone connected with our charity.

The first four guests on the podcast represent four wide-ranging strands of the organisation – Ralph Marcus, a tenant of Moorview House; Sue Lenord, CAST’s Advice Officer; Stacey Friedman, a volunteer; and Mark Adlestone OBE DL, former Fed chair and current honorary patron.

The unifying factor for all guests on the podcast is The Fed – which means something very different to each person – but the main focus of the conversation is on their individual life experiences, and the show’s laid-back tête-à-têtes give rise to some hilarious stories, emotional memories, and the recalling of surprising real-life events that can shape and re-direct a person’s life.

In the coming months, there’s an incredible roster of episodes to be released, including Holocaust survivor Ike Alterman; Fed CEO, Mark Cunningham; and David Robinson, Music Therapist with Nordoff Robbins whose wonderful work is often witnessed around Heathlands Village.

If you’re interested in people this show is definitely for you! It celebrates the diverse and fascinating community that exists within The Fed, and within the entire universe of social care. Humans of The Fed offers you a window into the lives of the people we help, those we work with, and those who support us – and everyone has an individual story to tell.
