In the last 17 months of being at Google, I’ve been focusing on learning the business of journalism while supporting the audio industry.
I’ve been a judge for the Audio Production Awards and the British Podcast Awards. I’ve been a mentor/judge for Spotify’s Sound Up Bootcamp. This year I’ll also serve as a mentor for Google’s Podcast Creator’s Program, in partnership with PRX/PRI.
The Google Podcasts creator program is designed to increase the diversity of voices in the industry globally and lower barriers to podcasting. Selected teams will receive seed funding and participate in an intensive training program.
