Get ‘EM right between the ears

“There are a lot of bad podcasts out there…

don’t make yours one of them.”

Audio is booming. More people than ever before are tuning in to podcasts and listening to audiobooks, making it the perfect medium for telling stories and spreading ideas.

But as the desire for audio has grown, so has the quality that people expect from credible organisations. Today’s listeners want professional-sounding production, engaging stories and interesting voices.

First Create The Media’s production team has more than two decades of experience in radio and podcasting for a wide range of organisations from the BBC to corporate clients, universities and charities.

We’re experts in producing high-quality, compelling audio that grows and engages audiences - but we’re not selling you ‘a podcast’.

Instead, we’ll work with you to plan and create the right kind of audio content that dovetails with your wider communications strategy and organisational goals, and help you get it out into the world in the most effective way.

For example, our Genetics Unzipped podcast for The Genetics Society is reaching 8,000 subscribers every week after just six months, with listeners all over the world.

“The Genetics Society is delighted with Genetics Unzipped. The podcast is always fascinating, as well as being informal and entertaining, and, most important for us, always gets the science spot-on. It strongly supports the science communication and engagement goals of the Society”

Professor Alison Woollard, Vice-President, Public Understanding of Genetics, The Genetics Society

Check out this recent episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, commissioned for the Society’s centenary, exploring the stories of the double helix, the triplet code, and the Punnett Square.

We also team up with expert producers and animators to storyboard and create engaging video content.
