The British media is beginning to catch up with the American podcast boom. But how easy is it to break into podcasting? Can the huge success of Serial be repeated over here? What skills (and equipment) are needed? And can you make a living from it?
We are joined by three experts: Fiona Symons, who oversees podcasts at the Financial Times; Caroline Crampton, co-host of the New Statesman’s pop culture podcast SRSLY, and Helen Zaltzman, who hosts The Allusionist, the first British podcast on the Radiotopia network, which has 13 million downloads a month and hosts the popular Criminal and West Wing Weekly podcasts.
Chaired by WIJ deputy chair Helen Lewis.
