If you didn't miss a single chapter of S-Town and you spend more time on Audible than you do with your friends, then this extravaganza is for you. Meet Audiocraft Podcast Festival, a three-day happening dedicated to podcasts. Whether you make them, listen to them or obsess over them, there are talks, panel discussions and workshops for you.
Headlining the program is a bunch of hit creators from Audible, namely Jesse Baker, Collin Campbell and Eric Nuzum, who, between them, have worked on West Cork, The Butterfly Effect with Jon Ronson and Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel. Other names to look out for include Eleanor McDowall of Short Cuts (BBC), Beverley Wang of It's Not A Race (RN) and Joel Werner of Sum of All Parts.
The action will kick off on Friday 1 June, with an opening night listening party at 107 Projects, Redfern. The centrepiece will be Radio Atlas, an audio project made up of sounds from all over the world, curated by MacDowell.
There'll also be a host of workshops happening across the three days, for those keen on creating their own audible series. And, for those who are really keen, there's a two-day content development retreat happening from June 6–7 — you can apply to attend here.
