What we're about

Regular online and in-person get-togethers for podcast creators.

Each meet-up is like a real-life podcaster FAQ asked and answered by the awesome MIC podcaster community.

During the covid-19 measures our meetups will be hosted online via zoom and are cost-free to attend ;-)

We also have a special podcaster guest most months to give their expert take on a chosen podcasty subject. To date we've had talks from chart-topping and award-winning podcasters about shortform podcasting, rating and reviews and remote recording.

Our guests have included podcasting legend Olly Mann, Brown Girls Do It Too podcast, Obsessed with Line of Duty podcast producers, BBC Sounds Commissioner Louise Kattenhorn, Dan Maudsley (BBC: Paradise), The VO Social podcast, Clare Freeman (ASFB Productions: Slimming World Podcast...), Kate Cocker (The Presenter Coach: Everyday Positivity), Alex Bennett (Lower Street Media, Art of Podcast), Guy Kilty (DipDap productions, BBC 5Live: The Price of Football), Sam Walker (BBC, Desert Diaries, Northern Power Women), Emma Goswell (Gaydio, Coming Out Stories), Mark Asquith (Captivate, Rebel Base Media), Amy Woods (Content x10), Ant McGinley (XS Manchester, On The Left Side).

“MIC's Podcast Club was a real inspiration for me and gave me the confidence to pursue my own podcast. Seeing others so passionate and enthusiastic about their subjects, made me want to raise my game. It also reminded me of how accessible and friendly the Podcast community can be.” Paul Fores – ‘Remember The First Time?‘ podcast

"We launched our podcast today, it’s a bit rough, it’s been a journey but I want to say thanks! MIC's Podcast Club has been invaluable." Rachel Goulding, Show Stream

How to win a podcast award ft QnA with Matt Deegan (British Podcast Awards)

Podcast Awards are a great way to build recognition and a respected profile for your podcast - but how do you enter them - and most importantly win one?

Joining us at MIC's Podcast Club in Feb is the co-founder of the British Podcast Awards Matt Deegan. He'll be chatting about how to enter the biggest celebration of British podcasts, top tips to get noticed by the judges and a look at previous winners.

After Matt, we have a chat with a panel of award-winning podcasters to explore how they went about entering and taking the crown at other podcast awards, as well as the BPA's. We'll also take a look at if having an award-winning podcast under your belt actually makes a difference. They'll be:

🥇 Frankie Tortora - Doing It For The Kids (Best Business Podcast, British Podcast Awards 2021)
🥇 Ian Sanders - Cold War Conversations (Best Arts & History Podcast, Quite The Podcast Awards 2021)
🥇 Charles Commins - It's All Cobblers To Me (Club Podcast of the Year, Football Supporters' Association Awards 2021)

We'll also have time for your questions for our guests too.

The QnA sesh is hosted by our Vic, who's been nominated for a few podcast awards and was a judge at last year's British Podcast Awards.
