Holly Friedlander Liddicoat, 25th October 2018

These days, communities convene in the digital space around podcasts that cater to special interests.

How do you to turn your radio work into a podcast that people across the world want to hear?

In the latest session announced for CBAA Conference, learn how you can take what matters to your community into a wider realm through the power of podcasting.

We’ll be joined by one of the pivotal figures in Australian podcasting, Kellie Riordan, leader of ABC Audio Studios. Heading the ABC’s podcast team, Kellie has been at the helm of hugely popular podcasts such as Ladies We Need To Talk, The Pineapple Project, Burn your Passport as well as kids’ podcasts Fierce Girls and Short & Curly.

Kellie was the founding producer of Australia’s most listened-to podcast, Conversations With Richard Fidler and has enjoyed a varied career at the ABC, including stints as the Content Director for 612 ABC Brisbane and reporting for triple j’s Hack program. She continues to work across several ABC teams, specialising in digital strategy, airchecking and digital standards, however it’s podcasting where Kellie has risen to great prominence. She’s also a board director for community radio station 4ZZZ and was previously a board director for Q Music.

After presenting at the prestigious Copenhagen conference Podcast Days earlier this year, we’re thrilled to have Kellie at 2018 CBAA Conference to offer her crucial insights into shaping your stories with the best structure and format as well as tips on securing distribution for your podcast.
