Podcasting is all the rage and has been booming recently. Last week, Joe Rogan's podcast joined Spotify for $100m.  Apple, Amazon Music and Audible have all announced this week that they too will be signing exclusive deals with other leading podcasters.

There are now over 1 million active podcasts, so how do you get discovered, how do you grow your audience and how do you make money from podcasting?

The Future of Podcasting is an online event with expert podcasters talking on a range of topics covering influencer podcasting, corporate podcasting storytelling, SEO discovery and dynamic ad insertions for monetisation.

This event is for all podcast enthusiasts both newbies and seasoned podcasters, producers or podcast hosts. Join us and book now!
