There will also be sessions focusing on:

  • Diversity and inclusion in podcasting with Leila McKenzie-Delis, CEO of Dial Global.

Podcast Radio, which celebrated two years on air this week, is in the business of podcast discoverability and uses the power and trust that people have in radio to market and promote podcast choice by playing sample episodes. It is on air on DAB+ in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Surrey as well as available online and via smart speakers.

It is monetised by selling traditional on-air advertising and sponsorship, inserting commercials into its online audio stream, partnering with international content makers and creating original podcasts.

For more details of the conference, the full programme with timings and how to register as an in-person or remote attendee, go to the Podcast Radio website. Numbers are now strictly limited.
