We would love to hear from you if you have an idea to contribute to the Voices from the Road podcast! We have assembled a small editorial panel whose members will consider the merits of your idea. Once it gets the thumbs-up, we can agree the format of your contribution, and how the recording will take place. In its simplest form, it can be done via an online meeting, but if it deserves a little extra attention, then a recording on location or with a group of others is also possible. Do get in touch with your idea!
