Podiant delivers gold star sponsorship for International Podcast Day


UK-based podcasting platform Podiant is a Gold Sponsor for International Podcast Day 2020 (30th September), giving the brand significant exposure to a global audience of creators.

The sponsorship will see Podiant lead an hour-long live stream at the virtual international convention which celebrates the power of podcasts. Podiant has swapped the traditional signature talk, that would usually be given by sponsors to promote their own brand and services, for a format that celebrates independent podcasters from the UK, US and beyond.

Instead, Podiant’s session will offer a series of entertaining and informative three-minute videos, which 15 podcasters have pitched in response to Podiant’s project “The Three Minute Podcast Pitch” enabling them to showcase their podcasts to an online worldwide audience.

The International Podcast Day celebrations are held virtually and attendees can tune in on September 30th at 8-9PM GMT (12PM-1PM PDT) for Podiant’s live session – The Three Minute Podcast Pitch Project for Indie Podcasters.

Some of the UK podcasts and creators that will feature in Podiant’s session include:

All of the podcasts are available to download for free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Mark Steadman, Founder of Podiant says: “We’re excited to be a Gold partner for ou​ r first-ever sponsorship of International Podcast Day. The partnership will give Podiant a fantastic opportunity to reach an even broader audience of creators.”

Mark continues: “We didn’t want to use our one-hour live stream to present a sales pitch about our brand or services, instead we want to try something new, focusing on celebrating the diverse talent in podcasting and unleashing them to a global audience. We will also be sharing some interesting announcements and content throughout the week, which will help us towards our goal of serving, connecting, and empowering creators.”
