Alastair Budge (C2 2000-05) Podcast Success

English Learning for Curious Minds, set up in September 2019, is the brainchild of Alastair Budge (C2 2000-05), the founder and CEO of Leonardo English.

Keeping it fun and engaging, the podcast (which is available on all streaming platforms) aims to help intermediate and advanced English language learners improve their skills through entertaining short stories on many different topics.

Alastair, who relocated with his family to Malta in 2017, began the podcast “with the idea to create a more interesting way for people to improve their English.” He “wanted to do something completely different and the idea was to create these weird and wonderful stores, from corporate scandals in America to the story of Guy Fawkes”.

The podcast has now had more than 500,000 downloads with a listenership spread across the globe.

He was interviewed by Lovin Malta about his success.
