    Episode 49 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast features an interview with Phil Parkin, co-director of Content OD, a content agency that’s making changes they hope will benefit the environment and be good for business.

    Content OD produce videos, social campaigns and all manner of content. We speak to Phil about how the company got started and his own journey from learning his craft in the US to leading the team at Content OD alongside wife and business partner, Anna Parkin.

    We also ask Phil about the company’s decision to spend 2020 taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint. They are putting measures in place that will be good for the environment, improve sustainability and hopefully have a positive effect on the team too.

    Finally, we speak to Phil about what it’s like to be a digital business based at Park Hill, as well as its ongoing redevelopment. Content OD are one of a number of digital companies that do business from Park Hill, but do we talk about that fact enough?

    This is a great episode for anyone who wants to try and fight the climate crisis by making small changes in the workplace. Go and get your headphones and enjoy yourself silly.
