The People Behind The Show

A Southampton-focussed podcast called The So SO Show. Zoe was a presenter on commercial radio for 20 years after leaving Heart radio when the breakfast show was made national, and she couldn’t stop thinking that people love to hear about local things and community.

Simon moved to Southampton in 2007 to work for the radio station Wave 105 and is proud to call the city home. He now runs an entertainment business and works for a national radio station at weekends. When he’s not at work you’ll find him cycling around The New Forest, Stand Up Paddle Boarding on the Hamble or in a cinema.

Listeners love to hear about local events and connect with places that they know. Having worked in the area for over a decade, and loving her community in Southampton, Zoe decided to start a podcast covering all the local positives with a Southampton flavour.

The podcast goes out weekly and has been very well received since Zoe & Simon started it in the depths of the first lockdown. They shine a spotlight on great stories from around the area, like new businesses that have been born in the pandemic and how things have changed in the last year.
