“Fantastic, informative and funny podcast. I’m a local lad and even I’m learning more about my own city!” – ryanbooth97
The team (presenters Betty Ball & Stevie B, and producer Jay Sykes) are keen to give a platform to people and projects in the city, and share events and stories that are gripping, quirky, or important to Sunderland.
“Sunderland is an amazing city, filled with everything – and that’s what Speak Up Sunderland is all about. Being part of the team is nothing more than fun. It’s very local, funny, relevant and random – which I think is a great selling point.” – Betty Ball, presenter of Speak Up Sunderland
In June 2019, Speak Up Sunderland was awarded a Finalist prize as “Best Podcast: Arts and Culture” in the New York Radio Awards 2019.
“Gutsy, funny and compelling listen, whether you are from sunny Sunderland or not. This podcast is going places – listen to this space!” – C.Reith
