Making the news


This week’s Ryecast is all about Charlie Harkness. Known around town as a former editor of Rye News, he’s also served as a Rye town councillor, but there’s so much more to talk about. After a long career in journalism, he made the move into comms and ended up working in Westminster for successive governments.

On this week’s podcast there are stories about the press and politics, together with tales of some infamous Whitehall parties (not the one’s you’re thinking about). There are big stories and big characters, along with a fascination with Rye’s history and the reasons behind his drive to make the most out of life.

Charlie’s edition of the podcast is Ryecast number 25. Search for Ryecast wherever you get your podcasts or visit Have a dig around in the archive to find more stories about the people and places that make Rye so special. Plus who or what would you like Ryecast to feature? Get in touch
