Last Wednesday Mindings creators Stuart Arnott and Ian Pleasance were guests on “Whipps Cross
Focus” with presenter John Doyle, on WXHR – Whipps Cross Hospital Radio.
WXHR was founded in 1969, and the popular station has been broadcasting to patients and staff 24 hours a day since 2004.
The station presents a great mix of music, news, sports coverage (with live commentaries from West Ham and Leyton Orient) and entertainment programmes, including the popular “Down Your Ward” featuring conversation, dedications and requests from around the hospital wards.
Being “local boys” Stuart and Ian were delighted to be invited onto the station, and they discussed how Mindings was created, and discussed some of the wider subjects of social care and digital inclusion (NB Stuart discusses these issues weekly on the “Disruptive Social Care Podcast“).
Here is a behind-the-scenes video of John interviewing Stuart and Ian in the WXHR studio:
