Changing Faces


“Topics which are new to me allowed me to learn new things and form opinions. It’s nice to hear more of young people’s voices and allows us to meet new people. Podium caters for under 25s and it’s different to regular organisations.”

“It’s a great way to open your horizons and find something new in audio broadcasting.”

“I appreciate the freedom which enables me to come up with my own ideas and do my own research on them. Podium offers independence and then guidance in feedback. It is a brilliant way of bringing different views and opinions together from a vast range of people from different backgrounds it enables you to be creative.”

‘You know when I looked back to the stuff I created for Podium.me, video or audio-wise, I could see an incredible journey of myself, and that made me very aware of my own change in attitude towards various issues – probably that’s the meaning of growth. I guess Podium.me has not only provided a platform for young-age to voice out, but also given us the chance to freeze the moment of youth and look back to ourselves in the future and keep on reflecting on ourselves. I guess that’s the most meaningful thing.’ Karkiu Tang Hong Kong

‘Podium is an amazing cause, it gives young people so many opportunities and creates a pathway for those who are involved in creating the content as well as those who are asked the questions and listen to the podcasts.’
‘You care about each journalist involved in Podium, you tell us about opportunities and jobs and want us to succeed and that’s an amazing quality to have. So thank you again and I would be thrilled to help you with anything again in the near future and beyond!😊
I first encountered Podium.me during my time as an undergraduate in London. I started by contributing little bits of content to their podcasts over the year, before helping to pitch, produce and deliver a BBC Radio 1 documentary. I was also offered a discounted place through Podium on a radio training course ran by the Radio Academy.  All of these opportunities gave me a great introduction to the industry.  I’ve since gone on to work as a freelance producer for the Radio Academy, RIG, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and now have a permanent job at TBI media where I produce content for the BBC and other commercial broadcasters. Podium no doubt played a huge part in my success,
and I recommend other young people who are hoping to work in broadcasting to take full advantage of Podium too – it’s a wonderful springboard to help you go on and achieve your goals.  Sera Baker
