Aged 10, our company director Clare Freeman dreamt of having her own production company called A Small Furry Bear. She presented radio shows on a ghetto blaster in her bedroom with her little brother. Now, some 20+ years later, as a podcast coach and presenter - that day dream is an everyday reality..
I truly believe that anyone can do anything they put their mind to. But sometimes we all need an extra helping hand along the way, especially when it comes to starting out podcasting. That's why I set up ASFB Productions. To share my knowledge and passion for audio with you.
