25 years ago if you were a teenager or in your twenties and hanging around Stoke on Trent you'd no doubt have seen an issue of Bomb Magazine. It was a fairly DIY publication talking about the club and music scene of the time. It was set up by brothers Alex and Ned Hough and in this episode of Cultural Quarter of an Hour Charlotte talks to Alex about the magazine, the area 25 years ago and plans for Bomb number 51!

Fred Hughes is a local historian, author, former Policeman and ex politician. I spent a lovely hour chatting with him a couple of Saturdays ago. For full disclosure I've enjoyed many a chat with Fred over the years I've lived in North Staffordshire thanks to working at BBC Radio Stoke. This interview could easily have gone on for hours but we kept it tight. Don't forget to head over to the CQHPod website for more information about the topics we discuss. Music credit...

66: Life Unwrapped

It's hard to deny there's a bit of a movement against single use plastic and waste at the moment. It's now easier to do your bit to cut down on plastic and waste AND shop locally. A new package free shop, Life Unwrapped, has opened up in Longton Market so I went to have a look. #SoTCulture Intro music credit The Big House by Jason Shaw used under Creative Commons license.

Did somebody say party? Yes they did! And it was all taking place at Affordable Food Stoke in Blurton.
