This is the humans of hospitality podcast. It’s about the awesome humans, from bakers to chefs, to entrepreneurs, to brewers, to farmers, to musicians and so many more who make our world just a little bit more wonderful. It’s a place to share our stories and our adventures and celebrate our incredible industry. But I’m nervous, I’m worried about the big corporate brands with big corporate budgets. The world is not meant to be formulaic and dull but these Goliaths are trying to take over our industry, with boring repetitive concepts on every street corner swallowing up incredible independent spaces and products and people Where we spend our money and the businesses we support have an impact on the kind of world we are all going to live in. Let’s at least make it interesting.

Very entertaining and informative
Greatly enjoying these podcasts. Whether you are in the trade or just someone that enjoys eating out from time to time these podcasts are well worth a listen. Not to mention there are clearly some real passionate characters in independent hospitality around Poole and Bournemouth.
Brilliant, not just for hospitality industry interest
I was sceptical about this being focused on hospitality as it’s not my industry but its excellent.
Properly authentic interviews, I’d recommend it to anyone interested in behind the scenes stories of independent businesses and entrepreneurs in general.
Goes way beyond hospitality and Mark does a great job of mixing the personal stories, mistakes, victories and challenges with discussions about the business models and operations.
Surprisingly fascinating. Not a beer drinker, but still great to hear how Steve built his business from his garage. Look forward to hearing more stories.
