Four special editions of the RSGB Talk podcast will be published during the Festival of Road Safety, covering drug driving, e-scooters, motorcycling and Road Safety Week.
Organised by Road Safety GB, the Festival of Road Safety replaces the 2020 National Road Safety Conference and will run throughout November (2-27 Nov).
There will be a mixture of content delivered on each of the 20 working days – including four RSGB Talk podcasts, co-hosted by Nick Rawlings and Edward Seaman.
Among the confirmed guests are Colin Brown, director of campaigns and political engagement at the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG), and Ean Lewin, managing director and founder of d.Tec International.
Nick Rawlings, podcast co-host, said: “Both Colin and Ean are known for their forthright views which makes them ideal podcast guests.
“We are looking forward to hearing their views on motorcycling and drug driving respectively, in what look set to be two lively sessions.”
The other two podcasts will feature: Jo Bullock, executive head of awareness and education at RoSPA and Collette Dunkley, external relations director at Neuron Mobility, in an episode about e-scooters; while Josh Harris, director of campaigns at Brake will provide a taster for Road Safety Week 2020.
