7L OFF-PISTE PODCAST
The 7L ‘Off-Piste’ Podcast is a platform for hosts and guests to dive ‘into the unknown’ and uncover topics of mutual interest that have led them to have a connection with the brand. Our hosts Nigel ‘Wingman’ Clucas and Oli ‘The Choc’ Dunn sit down and mix it up in the mothership, which is our very own Flagship Store in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.
In an industry which is surrounded by white noise, we aim to deliver an hour of honesty and reality. It’s important for us to check in on ourselves and check in with each other. We have developed this platform with a sole purpose of informing the masses and building a 7L community. Over the coming weeks, months, and years, we will be joined by a wide selection of guests that wish to share their story and share their love for the brand.
We will uncover the reasons behind the individual’s thought processes, creative decision making, upcoming events and product launches, as well as the surrounding influences that aid the brand’s growth like music, architecture, sport, and art. In the age of data and information, it can be refreshing to listen to a relatable story and personal anecdote from someone of potential interest, and that is what we aim to deliver.
