How To Run A Food Truck

Pippa Till gave up her job as a TV edit assistant to follow her dream of selling food at festivals, in her very own food truck.

But she had no food, no truck - and no business plan. 

Armed with nothing more than derring-do spirit, a pile of debt and a sackful of scones, Pippa spent the next few years attempting to master her profit margin, ace her marketing, and bake the perfect cream tea. And then 2020 happened…

Also catching up with Olly this episode is brewer-turned-author Tommy Barnes (star of our 2019 episode, ‘Let’s Build A Brewery’). 

When we last spoke to Tommy, he too had abandoned a steady job in the media to try his hand at beer-making in the Loire valley. How have the last two years treated him? And what IS a ‘beer-neutral brewery’? 

Tommy’s new book, ‘Trouble Brewing in the Loire’, is out now.

Meanwhile, in the Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart investigates the University of Salford’s project to develop a universal sound for e-scooters.  

Can he create a noise that perfectly matches his scootering speed and thrust? Can he channel his inner Hans Zimmer and match the medium with melody? Olly finds out.

Elsewhere, in the Foxhole, Alix Fox celebrates the creation of the most accurate 3D model of female anatomy ever, and advises a listener whose partner gets frisky in his sleep.
Is he suffering from sexsomnia? If so, does this excuse him from his actions? And just how common is this condition? Alix reveals all.
