Listen to the This Is Islay podcast

Islay News

Some new media from Islay to write about. Back in August the This is Islay podcast was launched. Its goal is to bring you voices from Islay, news and events with interviews from the community. It is intended for both locals and listeners further afield to give an insight into what is happening on Islay and how the community experienced events. The intention is to complement other news sources (e.g. The Ileach), not to compete with them.

As of writing this two episodes have been published, Welcome to This Is Islay Fàilte a chàirdean and Islay Resilience and A Trip To India. The below embedded player should list and allow you to play the most recent episodes (as of writing this the two mentioned ones):

What's New at Bruichladdich Hall This Is Islay

Glen speaks with Angus Rice about the recent updates at Bruichladdich Hall, and upcoming events planned for the Hall.  Angus Rice is the Chairman of the Bruichladdich Hall Committee.  Many thanks to the various teams of volunteers and contractors who assisted with the work, including the efforts of Islay Development Initiative. This Is Islay is a volunteer-led podcast celebrating the people, places, events and connections which shape the Islay and Jura communities.

  1. What's New at Bruichladdich Hall
  2. The Ileach (Fortnightly)
  3. Music Music Music
  4. Islay Show Day – Since 1838
  5. Snowball Earth, Back to Islay and FilmG

I hope you’ll enjoy the podcasts as much as I did and will subscribe to them (I’m using Google Podcasts, which works really well for me, but various other services including Spotify are available). With the latest developments around Covid-19 I found the information about the Islay Resilience Group very interesting and how it will help with possible future developments. But of course there are plenty of other interesting topics as well.
