Short Cuts is a radio show for BBC Radio 4 that showcases interviews and documentary pieces from the UK and beyond by making vivid use of sound, music and intriguing production techniques. Sophie Lording talks to the team behind the series, Eleanor McDowall, Alan Hall and Hana Walker-Brown, about how they find and create intimate yet exciting stories for radio. They discuss interviewing and recording techniques, equipment and the use of music and sound to create soundscapes.

To illustrate the series, the podcast includes the story A Tale of a Sickly Whale from the episode The Comfort of Strangers, where lighthouse keeper Dee Dee Conover talks about her encounter with a sickly whale and her attempt to comfort it. The piece was produced by Michel Montreuil.
