A Swaledale resident has launched a podcast service to record the thoughts of interesting Yorkshire folk.

Inside Yorkshire is being run by Susan Baty-Symes, from Healaugh, who interviews people about their lives and work, and then posts the conversation online.

Susan said the aim is to bring an insider’s perspective of life in Yorkshire and reveal intriguing details about the lives of those who live here.

She uses professional recording equipment and has undergone training to ensure the recordings are the best possible quality.

She said: “I met so many different people locally who were doing interesting things that I thought it would be good to record their thoughts.

“I’ve called it Inside Yorkshire to give me scope to go further afield but there’s so much going on locally in Richmondshire that I haven’t had to travel too far yet.”

Susan aims to release a new podcast every Monday.

Among those who have been interviewed so far are Sharon Davis, from Dales Business Network, author Mike Sparrow, and Reeth vicar Caroline Hewlett.

The podcasts get professionally edited before being posted on itunes and Stitcher.
