So You Think You Can Pod 2017

Listen to So You Think You Can Pod 2017

In deciding the winner of the second annual So You Think You Can Pod competition, we invited three Australian podcast hopefuls to have their pitches prodded, workshopped and sharpened by our panel of audio producers in front of a live audience – with a Wheeler Centre mentorship and prize pack worth $8,000 up for grabs. Listen in as the judges – Eric George (Australian), Kate Montague (Audiocraft) and Julie Shapiro (Radiotopia, USA), alongside Sophie Black and Jon Tjhia from the Wheeler Centre – delve deep into new audio ideas.

Joining us as finalists for this event were Coel Healy (Perth, via Skype), Penelope Bartlau (supported by team members Darius Kedros and Patrick Humbert) and Melanie Thomson (with Nick Henderson of the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives).
