We have news! In partnership with Arcade Media, Listen will be taking over the Rise Up Stage on day one of The Podcast Show 2023. If you want insights and practical tips on harnessing the power of the creator economy then this is a must-see.
The Podcast Show is a unique industry event. We attended last year and learned a lot (more on that, here), networked, and even saw some of our favourite podcast hosts in person. Since then our work has amped up massively, we’ve won awards, launched new shows and expanded our team. Notably, we launched our first Listen Original podcast, UNBOXED. UNBOXED sees Jordan Schwarzenberger interview top content creators like Max Fosh, Toni Tone and Mariam Musa, who have taught us, first hand, the power of the creator economy.
On the 24th May 2023, we bring these conversations to listeners in person at The Podcast Show. Over the last few months we’ve been busy behind the scenes lining up a roster of incredible talent and crafting a day of talks that will focus on what the podcast industry can learn from the creator economy, it’s set to be a huge event.
On the day we invite you into our network of top names from across the creator economy, as they engage in panels, talks and discussions to share their take on this growing industry and what it means for podcasting. Expect insights and actionable tips, from the role of podcasts in engaging audiences more deeply, to the ‘how’ of monetising content. Plus, we’ll be showcasing some of the incredible talent we work with, influential figures from across the industry and the voices we look up to.
