Manchester tech couple launch podcast agency
A new podcast agency is celebrating its second client win since founding last month.
Manchester-based Hear & Tell was established by husband-and-wife team Ross and Lucy Menghini after seeing the success of their own podcast whilst traveling the world as newlyweds.
Colony, a co-working space in the Ancoats area of Manchester with a new second property close to the city’s main Piccadilly train station, has appointed the agency to raise the profile of businesses based there.
Lucy is a former marketing director at Social Chain while Ross is an ex-head of business development at Apadmi. Their Life Design Diaries podcast has been downloaded 60,000 times.
“After both deciding to quit our jobs to live as digital nomads, we really wanted to diarise our physical and mental journey,” Lucy said.
“We’re both avid podcast listeners so we purchased a mic and off we went. It’s been a great experience, alongside meeting some truly inspirational people.”

Ross added: “The consumption of audio content is on the rise like never before, largely due to its convenience and better brands entering the market.
“A well-delivered podcast can help brands engage with their audience on a much deeper, more intimate level.
“We’ve also discovered what a fantastic relationship building tool it can prove to be.”
Alex Campbell, manager at Colony (pictured above), said: “Our members have very interesting stories to tell about their individual journeys through business and creativity.
“Putting their stories out there will provide valuable advice for other businesses and budding entrepreneurs.
“We also want to provide a window into our spaces and shed light on the community within, helping our members get to know one another better, and actively encouraging collaborative working.”
