Third Coast International Audio Festival // Chicago Public Radio

Pod-docs in the dock: How the UK could be at the Vanguard of an audio boom - Whickers World Foundation

It is a question I sprung on the BBC's Rob Ketteridge.
Whicker's World Foundation were privileged to snaffle Rob as a judge on our first audio pitching session next March. Seeing that his day job is ...deep breath... 'Head of Arts, Documentaries and Drama for BBC Radio & Music Production' for a broadcaster who casts a very long shadow across across our understanding of audio documentary, I assumed he might be sniffy about the rise of the upstart 'Portable-On-Demand- Casting'. Not at all. Rob says the ripples soon reached the shore BBC Radio 4. Rob is proud of result. Rob Ketteridge thinks differences in the funding model may hold the key. Ketteridge thinks this is a disincentive to advertisers. "I did talk to an executive from the United States who was saying that that the data on podcast consumption and the metrics aren't robust enough yet for the very big brands, say Nike (Note: Rob immediately thinks 'running shoes' I immediately think 'Hobnobs' at this point) those people with large advertising budgets to be confident that this is going to offer value for their advertising dollar and that is something that is holding back the development of those funding streams". Meanwhile Australian software companies such as Omny Studio and Blueberry in the US are starting to deliver terabytes of up to to the minute data and there are moves to develop something similar for the UK and "If that can be cracked in the UK, the home of innovation" says Ketteridge "Then the floodgates could really open."

Audio Award winners to be revealed at Radio Festival next week - Whickers World Foundation

RAFA judge Rob Ketteridge said: "We were impressed by the producer's close access to farming families in the area and the rich seam of original stories this offers, together with his proposal to focus on those who were children at the time - has it bound them more tightly to the community in which they were born or pushed them away towards different ways of making a living?"
