Episode 1 - Chris Mitchell, the ONE Campaign
To kick off my podcast, the first episode is with Chris Mitchell, my good friend and a Press Officer for the ONE Campaign. ONE was set up by Bono as a mechanism for campaigning for social justice globally, and to reduce and eradicate poverty and disease around the globe. Chris' beginnings however, weren't quite so global - an honorary Mancunian, like yours truly, Chris began his career whilst doing a part-time internship at the Uni of Salford. Hear how he got involved in campaigning, the differences between local government and international development press offices, and what he thinks Trump, Brexit, and the current bombastic milieu means for campaigning.
Campaign Cocktail is a one-on-one interview podcast, where I speak to UK campaigners about their careers and best campaigns, over their favourite cocktail. From PR to Politics, Advertising to Editorial, these programmes will go to the heart of what makes a good campaign and more importantly, what makes a good campaigner.
