The High Street Life podcast is presented by Roma Bhowmick and Leona Fensome and is a six-part series looking at life as an independent retailer on the St Albans High Street.

The series is sponsored by the St Albans BID (Business Improvement District) and will share with you, the stories, triumphs and challenges of business owners and managers who serve our community on a daily basis.

In this second episode, we chat with three café managers,  Kiosk's owners (formerly Hatch Kiosk) Andy and Tesni Bonar, George St Canteen's Kev and Julie Lee, plus Nkora St Albans former manager, Jaya Chingen. They share with us, what their journey has been like and also, how in June 2020 (and during lockdown) they reinvented life as an independent business manager.
