Adam not only is an authentic storyteller in all its aspects from voice and tone and manner but also brings the calm and integrity of being a well-prepared listener.

Steve Wait

Chief Executive Officer, The Business Centre

Adam and his team did a fabulous job at producing and marketing our first podcast series. I had no idea how much was involved and he made it very easy for us. I felt I could trust him to get the job done efficiently.

Who we are

Welcome to Day One - Bespoke Podcast Production in Newcastle_Logo

We are W2D1 and we believe in the absolute power of storytelling to educate, entertain and influence people’s behaviour.

But more so, we believe that humans connecting on a deeper level with other humans is just good for the planet and everybody on it. We tell our stories with one secret ingredient that isn’t really a secret, we let our unquenchable, unbridled curiosity guide our storytelling or we find the people who are insanely curious about the stories we want to tell.
