Top industry professionals to share their secrets about podcast growth

PRESS RELEASE · Manchester England, UK ·

A new virtual event from the organisers of the ‘Pods Up North’ podcasters conference, promises to help podcast makers to grow and evolve their podcasts.

On 20th November at 1400 GMT top podcast and audio industry professionals will gather online for a two-hour masterclass to talk about marketing your show, growing a dedicated community and evolving your podcast.

Speakers confirmed so far include musician, DJ and podcaster Clint Boon, international voiceover artist Nic Redmond, founder of the innovative Headliner video software Oliver Wellington, plus people from top UK podcast companies including Rebel Base Media and the Crowd Network. The team are announcing more podcast names in the coming weeks.

Pods Up: Level Up! is designed for podcasters who have launched podcasts and are looking to up their game in terms of their community, content and visibility.

The Pods Up North founders, Kate Cocker, Ant McGinely and Vic Elizabeth Turnbull explain the idea behind ‘Pods Up: Level Up!’:

“Because we couldn’t do a physical event this year, we still wanted to do something to support the growth of podcast makers here in the north and around the world. We couldn’t think of a better theme this year than ‘grow and evolve’. So many of us have launched podcasts this year, especially over lockdown, but one of the questions we get asked the most is what now? How do I get more listeners? How do I keep my content engaging? It’s questions like these that us and our podcast pals will answer for you during Pods Up: Level Up!”

Tickets are on sale now and are ‘Pay as you feel’.


Pods Up North is an annual conference to support and celebrate northern podcasters. The first event of its kind outside of London. The debut event, sponsored by Spotify was held in November 2019 and attracted 150 delegates and over 30 speakers including Craig Parkinson from Two Shot Pod, the controller of BBC Sounds, Audioboom, The Anfield Wrap, The Naked Podcast and A Gay and A Non Gay podcast.

Pods Up North is founded by Kate Cocker (‘The Presenter Coach’, Everyday Positivity), Ant McGinley (The Champ, On The Left Side) and Vic Elizabeth Turnbull (‘MIC Media’, Strong Manchester Women).
