Restart Radio

We produce weekly episodes of Restart Radio, with three weekly talk shows a month plus a special documentary podcast featuring special guest interviews. Dave Pickering is our podcast producer. Restart Radio airs live every Tuesday at 1:30pm on London’s best indie radio station, Resonance 104.4 FM (also on DAB).

Our theme music is made with lasers, photovoltaic cells, and repurposed computer parts, a collaboration between Opto Noise and Cassini Sound.
