The Friendly Society is a group-lead podcast project with the over 60s in Brierfield.
Participants were invited to a drop in cafe and group conversation for the over 60s. The group has since named itself The Friendly Society and are meeting in a community café every Tuesday morning, hosted by Hussnain Hanif, broadcaster and producer for ISBCA Radio (In-Situ Brierfield Community Art Radio). Each week, the group leads a topical discussion around subjects such as loneliness, isolation, dementia and caring. Each week the conversation is made into a Podcast for ISBCA Radio.
