Podcasting

I create podcasts with the voluntary, public and cultural sectors.

I am a podcaster based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, who is able to support podcast production anywhere in the world!

From managing your RSS feed, to overseeing the whole creation of your show; from training you to make your own content, to providing a virtual studio to which you can invite your podcast guests, I can help you lead the conversation in your field.

Will is brilliant to work with. He brings his extensive expertise and knowledge of podcasting, along with a calm and clear approach. This has been essential for our team who are at the beginning of our podcast journey. Within a short period of time Will has supported us to develop an overarching arc for a 12 month podcast series, led on all technical, recording and sharing aspects, and skillfully helps us to move out of our comfort zone into our podcast learning zone!

What is a ‘podcast’?

Podcasts are ‘on demand’ radio entertainment shows that are usually listened to on a mobile device via an app such as Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Increasingly, they are being used by organisations around the world to lead the conversation in their field, explore and share impact and training, and as an innovative way to engage supporters and beneficiaries.

I really like how the broadcaster, journalist – and now podcaster – Steve Richards describes them: as ‘places where conversations can breathe.’

 

How popular are podcasts?

The podcast market is still relatively small when compared to other media, but it is expanding … quickly.

According to OFCOM, in the five years between 2013 and 2018, the number of people aged 15+ listening to podcasts almost doubled: from 3.2 million to 5.9 million each week.   

And then, the curve sharply steepened. Between 2018 and 2019 podcast listens grew by 58%, and the numbers continue to grow rapidly.

Those who already listen to podcasts are listening more. In the same OFCOM survey, two thirds of listeners said that they listened to more podcasts now than when they first started.

So if you want to become part of the podcast-producing world, now is a very good time to get involved.

 

What are listeners interested in?

OFCOM sums it up in their report: “Podcasts are heterogenous; the range of organisations publishing podcasts, their genres, business models and production schedules are all very broad.”

What’s important in podcasting is not necessarily how big your audience is – although big audiences are no bad thing! – it’s who your audience is. That’s why podcasts have become a very popular way for people and organisations to raise awareness, share impact and learning, and not just engage, but interact with the people they work with.
