The Next Big Podcast Competition

Jan 28, 2015
We don’t need to tell you how influential podcasts can be, but we’re going to anyway. Podcasts can make their mark on multiple scenes, advance homebrewed talent into prime broadcasting material, and launch careers across the world. Podcasts cover limitless topics, from the obscure to the mainstream, but they all have one thing in common: they’re guaranteed to find a home in the heart of knowledge hungry listeners.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with UK music blog DrunkenWerewolf to launch The Next Big Podcast Competition - offering a unique opportunity for new podcasters around the world to promote their work online.

By entering your podcast into the competition, you will automatically enter to win some great prizes to help your business reach new heights in 2015. Over the course of the next month we will listen to all entrants to shortlist our favourites, before deciding on a winner on 15th December 2014.
