The Podcasting Round-Up: Xmas Bumper Edition!

Hello pod bods!

As we reach peak silly season, it’s time for some exciting announcements:

ALL the podcasts…

With the help of our staff podcasting community, we’ve managed to collate a huge list of all the podcasts affiliated with and produced at Melbourne Uni. You can check it out here.

We decided to include archived and active podcasts together, as we all know podcasts have a ‘long tail’ (i.e. the impact continues on long after its first release) and can be listened to at any time.

But we are only human, and not exactly IT experts, so if you notice any discrepancies in that list please get in touch.

Always growing…

We’re delighted to say that we have a new podcast coming!

It’s called The Secret Life of STEM, and will focus on generating and cultivating interest in STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths) among year 10s considering further study.

Episodes will be published in the coming year. For more info, email producer Buffy on buffy.gorrilla@unimelb.edu.au

Awards season…

You can now vote for us in the Australian Podcast Awards. Our entries this year are Eavesdrop on Experts and Starting Somewhere. Search for them here and cast your votes!

The Australian Podcast awards was established in 2017 to recognise and reward Australian podcasters.

Categories reflect content being produced in this country, and celebrate the industry and community that is taking shape around this content. Awards are judged by an independent panel of experts.

If you’re interested in entering your own podcast, you can do that here.

Bragging rights…

Our production assistant Silvi (aka the person currently writing this blog) was recently a finalist in The Wheeler Centre’s So You Think You Can Pod competition, with Chronically Chill – her independent podcast about chronic illness.

The podcast is primarily recorded in our Studio 757, which is free for all staff to book. Email podcasting-team@unimelb.edu.au to book some time in the studio!

Until next year, Merry Christmas and happy podcasting!
