Meet the Host, Jessica Stone

Jessica Stone started off in community radio with a good idea, and a willingness to learn. Now she’s an audio producer for Listening Books and host of The Listening Books Podcast. Mindful of her own start and the generosity of those who helped her, Jessica is a warm and encouraging instructor.

Listening Books is a UK charity that provides an audiobook lending service for those that find that their illness, mental health, physical or learning disability affects their ability to read the printed word or hold a book. In addition to audiobooks, Listening Books also produces The Listening Books Podcast, a monthly podcast for every kind of reader, but especially for fans of audiobooks.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

Resources

How To Start a Podcast has supplementary learning materials provided by the event host. Once you book an event, you will get access to these resources.

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
