Details

Recorded outside in a London park (socially distanced!) Amanda Litherland and Chrystal Genesis recommend some great podcasts and speak to creators.

Firstly, following on from the Black Lives Matter protests happening across the world, a selection of podcasts to help you learn about the history of race and racism, and actions you can take now. Including Scene On Radio series 2 Seeing White, About Race with Reni Eddo-Lodge and NPR's Code Switch.

Also suggestions of nature podcasts which discuss environmental activism and encourage positive change. Including Costing The Earth, Mothers of Invention, Black Nature Narrative, Outrage and Optimism, and So Hot Right Now.

And what is a branded podcast?
More and more companies are not just buying advertising, but commissioning entire podcast series to spread the word about their brand.
We hear from Radio Wolfgang's Holly Aquilina and Elle Scott, the team behind last year's award winning 'Selfridges Hot Air' to find out why companies are investing in this medium, and what goes into creating a successful series.

We also hear the 2020 British Podcast Award nominations for Best Branded podcast; #QueerAF, DeepMind: The Podcast, Meet Me At The Museum, On the Marie Curie Couch, The Penguin Podcast, and The Rough Guide to Everywhere.
