Episode 19 of 99% Perspiration

This is the first live special of 99% Perspiration. It was broadcast during Freshers' Week at the University of Sunderland, where I work as an Academic Tutor of radio. They invited us to create a special, live, one-off programme tailor-made to incoming students - "Making the Most of your Creative Degree".

A big thanks is in order for Matthew Donnachie and Grant Lowery, who were our sound-designers.

I'd love to hear back from you about whether this is useful (or not) if you're not based at the University of Sunderland - our Twitter is @99Podcast.

Our guests:

Jill Kirkham is the Programme Leader of Fashion Product & Promotion at the University of Sunderland, and there are tons of opportunities and tips available for fashion students which will be applicable to fashion-conscious listeners.

Lily Clifford is the Learning and Engagement Officer at the National Glass Centre, based in Sunderland.  Lily began volunteering at the NGC whilst she studied at the University, and this volunteering experience led her straight into her current role.

Sarah Heseltine is currently a Graduate Intern within the Student Recruitment team at the University of Sunderland.  She joined us to give us insight into extra-curricular opportunities at the University; in particular the Student Ambassador scheme which she was involved in.

Sinèad Livingston is a graduate from BA Community Music, in partnership with the Sage Gateshead.  She's currently setting up a musicians' creative network, and working alongside me on a radio programme called ArtyParti on Spark FM (Wednesdays at 3pm) - and you can hear more from Sinèad on episode 4 of 99% Perspiration.

James Hamilton is currently studying BA Journalism at the University of Sunderland, and currently presents Drive Time on the student/community radio station Spark FM.

And Rute Correia, who you can hear more from in Episode 18 of 99% Perspiration, is an incoming student of MA Radio (Production and Management).  She previously studied at Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Lisbon, Portugal, worked with Nintendo of Europe, and now creates the weekly White Market Podcast and runs creative company Rute's Loot.

Episode 12 of 99% Perspiration

Advice from two employees of Eutechnyx, a videogame production company based in Gateshead, UK. Luke Withington is a games programmer, and Erin Turnbull is a HR manager. They've got tons of advice if you're interested in working in videogame design, or programming - and they also offer an awesome sounding graduate scheme, Level Up.

And a brief clip of my gold award-winning radio drama, "SeaBurn". In the podcast you'll hear it had made "finalist" but since recording the podcast before leaving for the Big Apple, I took the gold award in the New York Festivals World's Best Radio Programs awards for "Best Student Drama Program".

The music this week comes from John Carl Toth - an incredible music composer from Tennessee, who specialises in creating soundtracks.
