Bureau have made radio and podcast-based audio stories, on a diverse range of subjects, for: BBC Radio 4, Documentaries on Newstalk, Science Gallery Dublin/International, Irish Design 2015, LGBT History Month UK, Inspirefest, Festival of Curiosity, UCD (Dr Shane Begin)/Science Foundation Ireland, and BBC World Service. Their documentaries have been supported by Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, ID 2015, and the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund.
Their approach to audio production is subject-led; they allow the subject matter to shape the overall sound of the finished production — sometimes using dense sound design and musical scoring (see: Tales From The Cryptid), but if it’s more appropriate they take a quieter, stripped back approach (see: All Mine).
