  • More event details

    More and more Australians are listening to podcasts. A recent ABC report concluded that Australians are very engaged listeners, some are listening to up to five podcasts a week, and most listen to the very end of an episode. These same listeners are seeking and listening to new podcasts, revealing we have yet to reach mass podcast saturation. Brands can still get in on the action and use their own or others' podcasts to speak to new, niche and growing markets. Podcasts can deliver impact and cut through the noise to deliver key messages directly into consumer's ears. What is even more exciting, is podcasting is still accessible to all. 

    Join our panel of experts as we explore the current state of podcasting and how you can get involved.

    During this panel, you'll discover

    • How our panellists got their shows off the ground.
    • How to be authentic and find your audience.
    • Their moments of great success, and their moments of self doubt and failure.
    • How to stay creative and consistent.
    • Their top tips for leveraging Apple Podcasts and other platforms.
    • Their production processes and tools of the trade.
    • How they evaluate the success of an episode.
    • How you can get involved in the podcasting community.
    • What success as a podcaster looks like.
    • PLUS the opportunity for you, the audience, to ask our experts what you want to know.
