Question: How do we solve a problem like diversity in the podcast industry?
The answer: Just do it.
If mainstream podcasting is lacking diversity, it’s not because the talent doesn’t exist. So what’s stopping companies from doing the hiring?
This panel will be hosted by Unedited, featuring David Lavas (Spoken Word Producer at Carousel Radio), Reju Sharma (Producer and CEO of Three Street Media), Tazer Black (Producer of The Receipts and 3 Shots Of Tequila Podcasts) and Sophie Herdman (UK Content Editor at ACAST).
They’ll be discussing: Why big companies need to be held accountable for not hiring diverse talent, the benefits of going independent and building your own table instead of waiting to be given a seat, and what the future of podcasting could look like when we hear more from underrepresented groups.
What better place to have this discussion than the London Podcast Festival?
