A new political podcast network in UK

PRESS RELEASE — July 16, 2019

London: 17 July 2019: A new political podcast network has been announced by The Real Agenda, the podcast for political change. The Real Agenda Network (TRAN) aims to partner with up an initial 30 campaigning organisations whose combined online following is over 500,000, which would act as a solid base to build an attentive and engaged audience. Already 10 organisations have agreed, they collectively have an online following excess of 100,000.

The focus will be on content that addresses the issues of inequality, poverty, environment and democracy, plus seeking to provide answers and adding a call to action, as that’s The Real Agenda! Inclusion in the network is open to podcasts produced by like-minded organisations committed to progressive social change. For those who do not already have a regular show The Real Agenda team can produce podcasts for partners.

Tom Burgess, founder and host of The Real Agenda said:

“Our aim is to bring positive political change, we can only achieve that by working together, so partnering with like minded organisations makes absolute sense and we can help each other. Podcasts are a great medium to share the message as it is immersive selective listening by those that are truly interested, we seek to inform, inspire and involve our listeners. We are well on our way to our target as we already have partners lined up who have a collective online following of over 100,000."
