Podcast 32 from Wiggly Wigglers

By Heather 13 years ago

Richard is somewhere on the M25, so Rachel joins Heather on the Wiggly Sofa. Rachel answers a listener's question about breeding mealworms (and single-handedly solves the National Waterbutt Shortage, well almost). Heather becomes a Chelsea judge, well almost. There's plenty of news from Wiggly Wigglers and a sighting of DDT in Mexico. Then Richard fires up Skype to interview Dr David Raey from the University of Edinburgh about his work on climate change. He's on the tele on 24th May on David Attenboroughs Climate Chaos programme. Farmer Phil becomes a grumpy old man, but mellows somewhat when his single farm payment arrives, well almost. At least Monty is as cheerful as ever.

By the way Wiggly Wigglers Podcast has got another review on iTunes, thanks to Laila. Here it is:
5 stars. The future of Broadcasting. Excellent! Informative, entertaining and addictive. Provides an extremely useful resource to anyone interested in gardening, wildlife and the environment. The farming segments provide a real eye opener from the farmer's perspective, from hedging and conservation through to subsidies and even a calf's post mortem. Incredibly professional, this is the future of broadcasting.
If you get a chance to leave a review we should be very grateful.
Wiggly Wigglers are at Chelsea Flower Show all this week, if you want to drop in and see Richard we are on Stand number EA15, and we were pleased to win a Highly Commended for our stand today.

News from Wiggly Wigglers this week.

By Heather 13 years ago

This week's Observer magazine has an article by Lucy Siegle who talks about how we need to think about the flowers that we buy. Check it out, she also mentions the Wiggly Bouquets.

We're just setting up our stand (EA15) at Chelsea Flower Show so if you want to meet Richard and our great students from Pershore College of Horticulture we're at Chelsea from Monday to Sunday.
You'll be pleased to hear if you have been waiting for a water butt that the water butt shortage at least at Wiggly Wigglers is...............over! HURRAH! I heard they were making £80 on eBAY! If you've bought one please don't sell it just yet........first of all its raining so save that water and second of all we don't have that many!
The new Wiggly Book written by Jenny Steel is at the printers and will be launched at 2.30pm in Cafe Direct on 1st June at Hay Literary Festival

Podcast 30 Show Notes

By Heather 13 years ago

Here is the first half of our first ever two part Wiggly Podcast. Two guests join Heather and Richard on the Wiggly Sofas. Wiggly bird photographer, John Harding, tells the story behind some of his hard to get shots and Neville Hart from Herefordshire Nature Trust gets into a heated debate with Heather. It's such a packed show that there's hardly any time to include one of Monty's Wormcasts. Part two will be along next week, so stay subscribed.

Podcast 29 Show Notes

By Heather 14 years ago

Richard has been to English Nature's Wildflife Forum and returns with not one, but four, roving Riccardo reports. But, before that, there is an update on the ongoing debacle that is the Single Farm Payment scheme. The good news is that payments have been made: but only if you're name is Sharon! Phil then tells us about his pea crop and the pests it attracts. Richard talks to Rhian about catering for the first Wiggly Day, but then fails to answer some listeners questions—at least to Heather's satisfaction. Plus a Monty Wormcast to finish.

Here's me having my picture taken for The Mail on Sunday.

I thought Jodie would arrange each worm gradually on my face........but no she dropped the whole lot straight on!! The article will be out on Sunday and is about Small Business and podcasting.
