Our New Podcast: The Next Step

What’s It All about?

Those that follow TipSquirrel on Facebook or Twitter might know that for the last little while I’ve been saying how excited I am about a new TipSquirrel.com project. This week we take a huge step so I thought I’d let you in on what its all about, who the first guest will be and who’ll be the host;

With the cooperation of, and facilities at, The Media and Journalism Centre in Peterborough we’re putting together a chat show with a special guest for each episode, we’ll be expanding beyond Photoshop and looking at all things digital getting the guests story and lowdown on what they’re up to, hence the name “DIGITALe”.

The First Guest

Ok, so we’re lucky we have access to some of the best digital trainers around the world and yep, we’re calling on one of them to be the guinea pig!

Gavin Hoey

Gavin will be no stranger to regular readers of TipSquirrel.com, he was one of the trainers at our first workshop and has been a huge support both for the site and personally.

Gavin’s knowledge of photography, Photoshop and Photoshop Elements is extensive and we’ll be getting as much information from him as we can squeeze out!

You can find out more about Gavin on his website and YouTube channel as well as his posts at TipSquirrel.com.

We’re prepping our questions for Gavin, so if you’d like to ask him something feel free to drop a questions in the comments below or Twitter TipSquirrel.

The Host

Twitter_VeryCloseBe prepared to be disappointed as TipSquirrel fumbles his way out from behind the comfort of obscurity and into the bright lights. Yup, you’ll soon get to know who it is that’s been  talking to you from behind that avatar. Please, please, don’t get you’re hopes up!

More about the ‘real’ TipSquirrel at a later date…. maybe.


Virtual Studio

We’ve popped together a simple studio, subject to change, that we hope will provide a nice  environment. We’d love to know what you think!


We’ll be recording on Wednesday February 22nd at 4pm so stop by on Facebook and Twitter to say hi to us all!

    You could run a poll or competition – “if you get 100 retweets or facebook shares you’ll wear a squirrel suit”

    Yes? 🙂

  4. Interesting idea…. I’m humouring you all by the way 😉
