It’s perhaps not what you’d expect from a bunch of boring accountants, but Hull and East Yorkshire-based 360 Chartered Accountants are far from the norm – and are extremely proud to launch their latest venture, the Purple Sofa Podcast.
Celebrating everything about Hull, there’s an array of topics covered in the very first episode from grassroots sports, culture and blindfolds to the Kraken and Hull’s music scene (with a bit of business and tax news thrown in of course), all served with cake – lots of cake!
Andy Steele, Director of 360, who co-hosts the Purple Sofa podcast with colleague Sean Maloney, said: “We wanted to have a podcast to talk about everything that’s great about Hull –because there’s a lot we can be proud of. And where better to place it than our famous purple sofa, found in our reception area, which has seated the great and the good over the years. It’s all a bit tongue-in-cheek (once we’ve quickly updated you on the latest business and tax news) because we wanted it to be a fun listen for everyone.
“Our first guest is the legendary Pete Mills from Hull Kingston Radio. We’ve got such an amazing music scene in Hull and we are predicting that our great city will become bigger than Liverpool in the 60s and Manchester in the 80s and 90s. You heard it here first! You can also hear what will be a regular slot, Sean’s Grumble of the Week – and believe me, it’s a corker!””
Co-host Sean Maloney added: “Being huge sports fans, we also talk about our new charity the 360 Foundation which has been set up to support young people in Hull access grassroots sports and why it’s so important. And we’re promoting some of the great local businesses around.
“As people are starting to return to work and getting stuck in traffic jams around Hull, what a great way to pass the time by tuning into our podcast! It’s a great time to live, play and work here.”
You can listen to the first episode on 360’s YouTube Channel.
