Under The Flyover is our occasional podcast which complements our website reporting with interviews and recordings offered exclusively to our loyal supporters.
Co-produced with Tim Longhurst, formerly of Croydon Radio and the brains behind the NowCroydon listings site, over the coming months we have interviews lined up with leading politicians, local historians, community workers, sports stars and a whole range of others who have something worth saying about Croydon, and that we think is worth listening to.
Generally, Under The Flyover episodes will be reserved exclusively for subscribers to the site, and available to listen via our Patreon platform, or for a fee from other podcast outlets. If you want to listen, you’re going to have to pay.
For just £5 per month, you will get access to our podcasts, as well as regular offers and iC-organised events and competitions. And you will also be helping to support the only independent and award-winning news outlet still based in Croydon.
Make sure that you don’t miss out: click here and sign up today and start to receive the benefits of being an Inside Croydon patron.
To give you a taste of what’s to come, our first podcast is available here, free of charge.
First to go Under The Flyover is Mark Butcher, former Test cricketer, TV sports pundit and mean guitar player, who has his second music album – Now Playing – out on July 5.
Butcher came into our Under The Flyover studio this week to talk cricket, naturally enugh (England were playing a World Cup match at the time), but also to chat about music, the role it has played in his life, and about his new album, including some of the things that have inspired his music, as featured in his single, Country, taken from the album.
We hope you enjoy the interview, and don’t forget to sign-up to become an Inside Croydon subscriber.
