Bruce Guthrie

My move to Radio came via a career in Dramatherapy so creating the right conditions for people to share something of themselves comes naturally to me.

Telling stories with other people's words is rather like carving a piece of wood for me. The beauty of the form comes from taking away until we hear only what's most important.

Radio works best for me when I can hear the intimacy and share the feeling that's being expressed. I don't consider myself highbrow as there's meaning to be found in the everyday and domestic - the places

we actually inhabit.
