Sheffield Talking News

This is the podcast channel for Sheffield Talking News. Our mission is to provide local news content and other items of interest to blind and visually impaired people in Sheffield. We currently have over 150 clients receiving weekly USB sticks with an interesting balance of news and feature stories, which are read aloud by our team of volunteers. We also produce 8 editions each year of our ’Talk About’ audio magazine and occasional one-off articles in our ’Out and About’ Series. In addition to the USB sticks our content is also available online, by app, via Alexa and on this Podcast channel. More details are on our website
