Mr Johnson said: “We are now suffering a quiet period and decided to put our spare time to good use by setting up a podcast that airs two times a week.

“It offers support and an alternative to TV and radio, by examining the latest updates from government and local authorities, mixed with a light-hearted take on surviving the pandemic.

“The idea came about after a discussion about how Fenland is already rurally isolated and suffers a lack of support and is often overlooked by mainstream media.”

Those wanting to take part in the interview section of the show should get in touch with Mr Johnson by emailing: dmj.imagery@gmail.com

Shows air on Monday’s and Thursdays and can be listened to or watched via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Apple Podcast and Stitcher Podcast. Just search ‘Fenland Chat Hour’.
