BuddyLine is a series of intergenerational telephone conversations between people from the Sonder Radio Community of over 60s and the Reform Radio Community of under 30s.
Taking advantage of the technology available to us, the conversations will be remotely recorded from each of their homes. Through these honest conversations, our listeners enter into an intimate and genuine meeting between two people who would not otherwise interact in everyday society.
Participants will be committed to a week long training learning transferable communication skills such as storytelling, active listening, interview techniques, radio presenting and also the technology side of radio with the responsibility of recording, producing and editing these calls into a show that will be played weekly.
This project starts on on Monday 27th May, running from 10AM – 4PM. There is also a taster session on Thursday 13th May from 12:30 – 2:30pm.
