The Radio Academy partnered with Podcast Day 24 earlier this year, to offer a discount to all Radio Academy Members and issued five bursaries for people who felt the conference would benefit them but were unable to afford a ticket themselves.
Podcast Day 24 was an exciting online conference, bringing delegates 24 hours of podcasting content from Australia, Europe and North America. Focussing on everything that’s going on right now in the World of podcasting, the conference was a continuous 24 hours of talks, which delegates could watch live and on-demand.
The conference had podcasters from around the world giving updates on what they’re doing now, how they got there and what they’re looking forward to. Speakers included: Tolani Shoneye, Audrey Indome, and Milena Sanchez – also known as The Receipts. Happy Place star and creator, Fearne Cotton, Holly Bott, Managing Director of Entertainment at YMU Group, NPR’s Tamar Charney, Adam Bowie from BBC World Service, Knud Brix, Denmark’s number one podcaster plus James Cator, Spotify and speakers from the podcasts Brainwashed, Pop Chat and Evil by Design.
