Ask the Regulator Podcasts

We want to make information and advice on all regulatory matters as easy as possible to access, which is why we've launched our new Podcast service

Podcast Aug 2021Our aim is to hold dialogues and discussions between regulators, businesses and members of the public on matters concerning Environmental Health, Trading Standards and Licensing.

You can listen to all of the episodes by clicking on the relevant link below. 

Our Podcasts are produced by the good people at Bro Radio and are a great way of getting insights on things that matter to businesses across Bridgend, Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan - from allergens and food hygiene to health, safety and consumer protection.

Bro Radio is the local Community Radio station focused on the Vale of Glamorgan. It promotes a feeling of social identity and community pride amongst the urban, rural and coastal communities which exist within the county. We are looking forward to collaborting with Bro Radio on these Podcasts to hopefully reach a wide audience keen to learn about regulatory matters.

We are also excited to announce that our Ask the Regulator Podcasts are available to listen to on Spotify. Click here to listen to all episodes.
