Best of 2016 special: Midnight Chats podcast

We started a podcast series in 2016, these are some of the knockout highlights

Our Midnight Chats podcast started back in February this year. The idea was that it would be a series of informal, late-night style conversations with artists we felt were inspiring or had something interesting to say. Each fortnight they’re made available online at midnight.

Eleven months down the line, over the course of 17 episodes, we’ve had a massive variety of guests and conversations. It felt right to share some of the highlights from 2016. This special episode takes a look back at some of those moments. Some are moving, often enlightening and others are just a good laugh. All, we think, are pretty compelling.

We’ve been to visit Matt Berry in the back of an old junk shop, met with Mike Skinner on the day Donald Trump was elected, sat down with Jon Hopkins on the hottest evening of the year and spoke to Natasha Khan from Bat For Lashes the week following Brexit. You’ll hear clips of those in this podcast, along with some of our other favourite bits.

Midnight Chats will be back in January 2017. You can subscribe to Midnight Chats on iTunes. If you’re feeling generous, you can rate and review us, too. Thank you for listening this year.

Greg & Stuart.
