Exploring Global Problems Podcast Production
Exploring Global Problems is a 14 episode podcast demonstrating Swansea University’s ground breaking research into global challenges. Carnival Content pitched the concept to Swansea ahead of REF 2021. We produced, recorded, edited and published the series.
We also filmed each episode. The full videos were published on Swansea University’s YouTube channel and two 30 second highlight video clips were edited per episode (with English and Welsh subtitles and in square and portrait formats). These were used to promote the podcast on social media.
In total we produced 14 audio podcasts and 70 videos, as well as photography of the guests. We maximised the amount of content produced in each hour long session. This method of producing content at scale gives our clients the best ROI. It helps them overcome the resource issue of publishing high quality content consistently on social media.
We learnt a lot about these global issues from working with the incredible academics at Swansea University. It was also our pleasure to work with the very talented Sam Blaxland, who is the host of the podcast and a future broadcast star in our opinion!
