About the Podcast

Diary of a Space Archivist
A light-hearted podcast about friendship, chocolate and space...
Sam archives space. Yep. It's pretty boring... until she finds an alien-bat-thing hiding inside her robot companion. How will she keep the cute, and definitely not terrifying, creature safe from the very corporation that employs her? After all, she's just an archivist.
Don't worry, everything will be fine...

Beccy Stirrup

I'm Beccy and I make 'Diary of a Space Archivist', and the-soon-to-be-launched, 'Story Trails'.

I genuinely love writing and making stuff. I have worked for over a decade in Higher Education and actually began making my podcast because I wanted to help students navigate Audacity. I soon fell in love with the medium and that, as they say, was that.

Now I work for myself as a freelance writer / performer and education consultant, and I get to make my podcasts - which I hope you enjoy.
