GREETINGS FROM MARGATE!

Welcome to episode 19 of Buddy’s Buddies! This is part 2 of the ‘Margate Voices’ series, which is a collabo between myself and the Margate Mercury - and also, a new episode of Buddy’s Buddies which in itself, in current times, is a monumental occasion for all kinds of reasons, so there are many reasons to rejoice!

Lucy, the editor of Margate Mercury had an idea of a way to combine forces, whereby the format of the podcast would be the same as always but the guests would be in a somewhat different vein to usual. In this case, as a follow up to the previous edition with Cyril, she connected me with Carla. Through Carla it was also possible to meet and chat to her mum Gloria, which was also a true treat.


What follows is a really sweet chat between me, Carla and Gloria, which took place at Olby’s (massive thanks to Eli & the gang there who, as always, managed to make a perfectly safe and secure scenario in which to get things done) late in August. Gloria is from Trinidad and came to the UK in the 60s, and I feel like there’s a podcast series in itself waiting to happen with that whole story - we barely even scratched the surface there but I hope we get to meet up again and go further into it all. Carla was also excellent, and it was really fascinating to hear how she’s been getting on over the past half a year through the chaos as someone in the education system. We also touched on the Black Lives Matter movement and events through 2020 to hear their unique perspectives on it all, and covered a good amount of ground between us all! No spoilers as I just want you to hear the whole thing and just take an hour or two away from where you are now to get lost in a lovely chat with two engaging, sweet and truly fascinating guests. I really do wanna get the back for round 2 - we’ve only just begun! Please enjoy Carla and Gloria, Thanet’s finest!
