Today saw the official launch of Pod Radio, our exciting new digital radio station. It is the latest offering from the OHC&AT families’ Digital School.

Pod Radio broadcasts live from Quadrant House, Sutton in the heart of the community and is run by our students. The shows will cover a variety of topics from movies and video games to news and current affairs.

Simon Gale, Creative Director of The Digital School at OHC&AT commented, “The students’ have done a great job and already caught the eye of some celebrity podcasters. I am delighted to announce that we have a number of special guests lined up to feature in future podcasts including; European football journalist, broadcaster and best-selling author Graham Hunter and producer and broadcaster Ben Green, co-creator of “The Totally Football Show” and head of content at Muddy Knees Media.“ He added: “It is great to get this kind of support from such gurus in the podcasting world.”

You can tune in to Pod Radio via our Spreaker channel at:

Dr Caroline Allen (OBE) Principal/Chief Executive Officer of OHC&AT summed up the atmosphere at the launch, “What a great day for our students and Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust, this is exactly why we set up the Digital School. I am so proud of the team for launching yet another forward thinking and innovative product run by our students who have been involved from the initial concept and are now broadcasting.”

The final word has to go to Abigail Adams, a Digital School student and one of today’s presenters who said, ”I love being part of Pod Radio, I get to play some of my favourite music and my friends can listen to our podcasts!”
