Nick Grimshaw In Conversation

Part of the Radio Academy Events

9 Nov 2022 6:00 pm

 An audience with Nick Grimshaw

With a podcast and a new book out now, Nick Grimshaw has certainly been keeping himself busy since leaving Radio 1.

For our November London event, the popular broadcaster talked with Arielle Free about those exciting new projects, as well as reflecting on 14 years on-air at the BBC. He spoke about building his career, and how he's approached new adventures, after landing his dream job so early in his career.

Members can catchup on the event below.  (Unfortunately, due to equipment failure on the night, the first 21 mins are audio-only. But the conversation is still awesome!)

Craft Beer for this event is generously provided by Toast

Toast Ale brews award-winning craft beers using surplus bakery bread. All profits go to charities fixing the food system. They say: "Our food system is the most significant contributor to climate change, but one-third of all food is wasted. We are here to change that.

"We have an epically collaborative approach, partnering with the bakery industry and other breweries to produce our beers. By using surplus bread, we prevent food waste and reduce our beer’s environmental impact by using around one-quarter less malt (than other beers).

"We also influence broader systemic change by funding environmental charities, collaborating with other breweries and inspiring a community of change-makers to do our bit and have a cheeky pint."
