The Freemasons have launched their new podcast series, Craftcast – The Freemasons Podcast.

Remarkably, within 24 hours of the podcast’s launch, it was already sitting comfortably in the Apple Podcast UK top 100 list, as well as in the top 20 in the Society and Culture category.
The podcast is hosted by three young Freemasons: Shaun Butler (age 29), James Dalton (32) and Stephen Whatley (22). This gives the podcast a unique perspective through the eyes of younger members. It will be available on all popular platforms, including Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music.
The Craftcast aims to address the public perception of Freemasonry by opening up a new channel of communication to talk about Freemasonry with both members and non-members. In the future, the creators hope that new audiences, of all ages, will engage with Freemasonry and that Craftcast becomes the foremost Freemasonry podcast on the market.
Mr Butler, host of Craftcast, says: 'We are delighted to be launching this new project. We will be speaking to a wide variety of guests from across the world of Freemasonry, including the Pro Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England. We hope the podcast will educate people about our organisation and encourage them to find out more about Freemasonry.'
The first series comprises of 10 episodes, including discussions on many topics around Freemasonry, such as Freemasonry and young people, Freemasonry and social media, common misconceptions about Freemasonry, and much more.
