Emma Casson, radio graduate turned entrepreneur has set up her own audio business called “Your Stories”.
With few jobs in the North East for radio, Emma believes that an audio business is ‘a great way to get everyone’s voice heard’ as she thinks ‘every one has a story to tell’. After studying the Radio MA at the University of Sunderland, Emma fell in love with telling stories.
For Emma, a story is something that might help or inspire others or a particular issue that someone may be passionate about.
