About Alice Vickery

“After studying creative writing at the University of East Anglia, I used my skills to get into radio and podcasting. I love learning and listening from people different to myself, and this interest has led to interviews across the world, from Edinburgh to Australia. Whilst travelling, I wanted to try new experiences and tell the stories of the fascinating people I was meeting, so I started Dingbat Chat. This led to stand up comedy which became my solice when I returned home to Cornwall during Covid. Upon returning, the skills I had learnt through Dingbat Chat launched me into a career at the BBC... but I missed podcasting! Cornwall is full of talented, creative individuals, the more opportunities I get to explore them, the better.

So I have started Cornish Kaleidoscope, a podcast where I speak to people in Cornwall who have used their diversity to fuel their success. There's so much to explore in our own county and podcasting is the perfect platform in which you can take the time to open up and let a story unfold.”

It will also cover how to start your own podcast.
