The Podcast Academy and DCP Entertainment announced its joint venture of a brand new podcast series, Podcast 360, that launched on August 8. In each episode, company founders and podcast experts sit in the hot seat to answer three questions all about podcasting–from marketing, trends, audience engagement, and beyond. Through a fun ‘gamified’ experience, guests will only have 60 seconds to answer each question, giving listeners a deeper connection to their stories, their companies, and the podcast industry. Furthermore, the previous week’s guest becomes the host in the next episode turning the mic on industry colleagues, creating a cascading chain of knowledge and perspective. Podcast 360 will be available on all podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Pocket Casts, with new episodes every Tuesday.
Podcast 360 guests/hosts include Donald Albright (president/co-founder, TenderfootTV), Shira Atkins (CRO/co-founder, Wonder Media Network), James Cridland (editor/podcaster, Podnews), Dan Misener (co-founder, Bumper), Sharon Taylor (SVP, podcast strategy/product operations, Triton Digital), and Fatima Zaidi (CEO/founder, Quill). Additional guests/hosts and episode guide to be announced.
“The Podcast Academy is constantly looking for ways to help support creators and industry leaders through education, mentorship, and community,” said Christina Mirabel, Vice-Chairperson of TPA. “We’re thrilled to partner with DCP on a unique podcast that is packed with practical knowledge and insider peeks into the industry.”
“We are honored to be working with The Podcast Academy on their first official podcast series,” said Chris Colbert, founder/CEO of DCP Entertainment. “The premise of Podcast 360 reflects TPA’s efforts in creating a more equitable environment for independent creators and fostering accessibility to new podcast enthusiasts.”
