SBS encourages discussion of TV shows using podcasts
April 6, 2018 · Updated May 2, 2018
Australian tv and radio broadcaster SBS has an interesting model for podcasts: to "encourage discussion and fan engagement around some of the TV shows currently broadcast on the network". Fan podcasts so far produced include Batmanland, discussing the 1966 Batman TV show ("Pow!" "Whack!") currently on the network on Friday nights; and one called The Good Fight SBS Fan Podcast, the TV show of which airs on Wednesdays. We're told "it’s a way to engage with fans of our shows while exploring the themes and moments of each that relate to the spirit of diversity and inclusiveness that drives the SBS charter."
