Emma Goswell is a broadcaster, podcaster and author who champions the stories of LGBTQ plus people.  

Her podcast and book, “Coming Out Stories', shines a light on the experiences of 100’s of people of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world.  

Emma co-hosted the groundbreaking Gaydio breakfast show in Manchester when the station first went national.   She won a Sony award for her work for the prison radio association, and you can also hear her on Virgin Radio Pride, with her show “The Weekend Outing”.

Emma recalls the time she was drafted in to advise the creators of Brookside on how to accurately portray British television’s first lesbian kiss and how she ended up washing and blowdrying an award-winning bull as part of her extremely successful ‘Manhunt’ programme on BBC Radio Manchester.

Having recently struggled through a difficult birth for her daughter, Niamh, Emma expresses her gratitude to the NHS and drives home the importance of respecting other people for who they are and embracing those from all walks of life.

Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre.  From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.


To celebrate the 25 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Greater Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best place in the world.
