Ross Sutherland is a jack of all writing trades. He is a poet, a playwright, has written for radio, TV and film, and is now an award-winning podcaster. His experimental storytelling podcast ‘Imaginary Advice’ won gold at the British Podcast Awards in 2018, and his new series is ‘The Golden House’. It’s a 6 part puzzle of a podcast, presented as a corporate show for a fictional tech company, in which the presenter is trying to reveal some of the firm’s darkest secrets without them realising.
We chat about why he wanted the podcast to promote collaboration across the internet, how much he knew about the show before he started, and how he layered up clues and puzzles within the episodes. You can hear how he controls his rampant creativity, and why he believes rules can change the game.
Ross talks about why his working style differs depending on what he’s writing, why podcasting intrigues him so much, and why he loves editing.
