Online, on demand, and on fire! Trevor Dann talks podcasting

Thanks to the smartphone, radio is in your pocket not on your mantelpiece. Escaping the constraints of broadcast regulation, the podcasting revolution is bringing innovation into audio production - not just new formats and new ideas but new advertisers and new listeners. With 25% of UK audiences now consuming audio on demand, it’s become the ultimate personal and portable medium. Trevor Dann explains the growth of podcasting, plays some examples of the best work on the new platform and assesses some of the creative opportunities for Cambridge businesses - that's you! Bring your podcasting queries, ideas, and favourites for discussion. Trevor currently runs his own independent radio and audio production company which makes programmes for BBC Radio and a number of corporate clients including Cambridge University. He also runs a voiceover agency and is Professor of Journalism at Nottingham Trent University. He is a director of the community station Cambridge 105 Radio and secretary of the trade body AudioUK. Previously he was Chief Exec of the Radio Academy, Head of BBC Music Entertainment (where he ran all the BBC's music programming on radio and TV), and a producer at Radio 1 and at BBC TV where he produced The Old Grey Whistle Test and was the studio producer of Live Aid. In-between he worked in most roles within BBC Local Radio - as a reporter and producer at Radio Nottingham, Managing Editor at GLR (now Radio London) and breakfast host at BBC Cambridgeshire. He read History (not very often) at Fitzwilliam College Cambridge University and lives in South Cambs with his wife and two children. - 7:30pm Drinks, snacks, and chat - 8:00pm Trevor Dann + Q&A - 9:00pm Break for more drinks, snacks, and chat - 9:30pm Close See you there!
