Quay Words in Audio

We were pleased to launch the first ever Quay Words podcast in August.

Over the past few months, we’ve been finding new ways to explore a love of words and stories in digital formats. Quay Words is a programme which takes place at the historic Exeter Custom House. During this time, we can’t be in the building but we can certainly find ways to share the stories of Exeter Custom House and the city of Exeter.

One of the ways we’ve decided to do this is by hitting your podcasting apps with the Quay Words podcast. A monthly offering, these podcasts will feature the writers we work with, the people we meet and the stories they have to share.
