The Bromley Buzz podcast is available on Podbean, Alexa, Spotify, Apple, Audible, Amazon, Google Podcasts, Tune In, and Listen Notes.
On 4th August 2021, the first episode of the Bromley Buzz podcast, named ‘Pilot’ was published. Co-hosts Darren Weale and Zeenat Noorani didn’t know what to expect. The podcast, suddenly put together to get some long-overdue talking going about what the people in the London borough of Bromley are up to, might have ended there if it hadn’t been well-received. However, then promoted solely via Darren and Zeenat’s LinkedIn pages, and shared by Sarah Marsh-Collings, who suggested the name, that first post produced a surprising amount of views. Comments like these inspired us:
“Love this and please let me know more so I can promote it and help in any way.” – former Mayor of Bromley and Bromley’s current Small Business Champion, Councillor Hannah Grey

“What an awesome pilot episode . As a Bromley resident for over 21 years, i reckon it is a great way to highlight “Bromley Vibes” by such skilled and talented individuals.
