Roundhouse’s talent development programme seeks new young podcasters

Roundhouse’s award-winning audio platform, Transmission Roundhouse, is on the look-out for the next generation of podcasters who have an idea they want to get off the ground.

Designed to champion underrepresented voices, the Transmission Roundhouse Podcast Academy takes on a yearly range of talented individuals aged 18-25, from total beginners to seasoned pros.

It offers learning and mentoring opportunities for podcasters to develop their series working alongside the Roundhouse’s internal producers.

Previous Transmission Roundhouse podcasters have gone on to be nominated for, and win, a host of awards. Talia Augustidis won Bronze Rising Star at the British Podcast Awards for her podcast UnReality, and Marnie Woodmeade won the International Women’s Podcast Award for Changing The World One Moment At A Time and Best Educational Podcast at the Independent Podcast Awards for her podcast, Dwelling. Cherise Hamilton-Stephenson won Gold for The Creativity Award and Bronze for Best Current Affairs at the British Podcast Awards for her podcast, Interconnected Voices.

Transmission Roundhouse also has a brand-new home in the recently opened Roundhouse Works, a creative centre for 18–30-year-olds who want to turn their creativity into a career.

Though renowned as a legendary venue, Roundhouse has also been one of London’s leading creative centres for young people for the past 20 years.

It currently works with over 8,000 young people aged 11-30 in state-of-the-art studios at the venue in Camden, offering music, performing arts, digital and broadcast projects and professional opportunities.

Application for the Transmission Roundhouse Podcast Academy is open for those aged between 18-25, until midday, 8 April on the Roundhouse website.
