Got a unique idea for a podcast – and need a leg up to make it happen?
We’re all ears. Our annual So You Think You Can Pod competition is back for a third round! Three Australian podcast hopefuls will have their pitches prodded, workshopped and sharpened – live – by our panel of audio producers. The winner will walk away with a Wheeler Centre mentorship and prize pack, worth up to $8000.
Terra, by Eugenia Zoubtchenko, is the winner of So You Think You Can Pod 2018.
At an event announcing the result, Eugenia and fellow finalists Silvi Vann-Wall (Chronically Chill, pitched with Izzie Austin) and Annaliese Redlich (All Ears) joined the competition's judges for a discussion of the top three entries.
At the same event – due to the high quality of entries, and the widely varying levels of support needed by aspiring podcasters – the Wheeler Centre announced a pilot initiative called Signal Boost, which will offer tailored mentorship and support to up to five entrants from this year's competition in developing their first episodes.
So You Think You Can Pod 2018 will be judged by Slate Podcasts senior managing producer June Thomas (US), comedian and Short Cuts presenter Josie Long (appearing via video link from the UK), and Broadwave co-founder and radio producer Areej Nur, alongside Sophie Black and Jon Tjhia from the Wheeler Centre.
