About this Podcast Episode

In this week’s episode of Trade Legends, content creating hacks & celebrity clients. We dive into the fascinating worlds of bespoke shoes and edgy marketing. Join us as we uncover secretly recorded messages, trade secrets, explore the power of networking, and discover the passion that drives true craftsmanship. From the gritty, Blade Runner-esque aesthetics of Dissident Marketing to the intricate art of creating custom, handmade shoes, this episode is a must-watch for anyone seeking inspiration and insight.
Our first guest Dan, the founder of ‘Dissident Creative Agency’, shares his creative journey. With a focus on creating content that stands out in the construction industry, he reveals the importance of building a strong network, how to know if someone secretly records you, and the value of taking calculated risks. Learn how his company’s unique approach has attracted clients like Fischer, and how they’re revolutionising the way construction brands market themselves.
Next, we sit down with James and Deborah, the dynamic duo behind the independent bespoke shoemaking company ‘Carreducker’. With a combined experience of over 20 years, they share their passion for preserving traditional craftsmanship while embracing innovation. From James’ apprenticeship at John Lobb to Deborah’s Queen Elizabeth Scholarship, discover the dedication and skill that goes into creating a pair of bespoke shoes. Plus, get an inside look at their workshop in the heart of London and learn how they’ve adapted to the challenges of Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout the episode, we explore the common threads that tie these seemingly disparate trades together: a commitment to quality, a willingness to take risks, and a deep love for their craft. Whether you’re a seasoned tradesperson or simply curious about the world of artisanal craftsmanship, this episode is packed with valuable insights and engaging stories. So sit back, relax, and prepare to be inspired by the passion and expertise of our incredible guests.
