I broadcast a fortnightly long running show called The Quiet Revolution on HFM Radio, the local community radio station for Market Harborough, South Leicestershire and North Northamptonshire in the UK East Midlands. You can also listen to the show on 102.3 FM if you live in our transmission area, through your smart speaker and via the HFM Radio and Tune In Radio apps.
