I've been podcasting since 2010, been in broadcast media for 23 years from community to international radio platforms. I am heavily involved in the art of conversation and I train stations and students on how to dial back the influence of a digital disconnect from an empathetic, interesting, and 4-dimensional world. My company has led in media innovation to contribute to pushing content creators to the next frontier. There are over 1.5 million unique currently live podcasts in the world, but it is forecast to how you ask, but still continues in growth. In South Africa, it already feels saturated, and it is, but hardly by great storytellers. Another frontier currently being led by the UK, and myself as well as another 2 -3 podcast creators, have been consulting for corporate integration podcasting. This is extremely beneficial to geek influencers, geek product creators, and geek business holders - and this all would be the basis for my panel discussion for Comic Con 2023. Excelsior!
