We’re thrilled to announce the return of My RØDE Cast!
My RØDE Cast is our annual podcasting competition that we launched in 2019. It was a hugely successful inaugural year with $AUD 150K (more than 3 million Baht) of RØDE podcasting gear being awarded to podcasters around the world. 2020 will see My RØDE Cast kick up a notch, with more prizes and more chances to win.
To be in the running, podcasters need to submit an original podcast, 1-2 minutes in length. This can be on any topic and in any style – a condensed version of an existing podcast, a teaser for a longer episode, or a snappy show that leaves us wanting more. Anyone can enter, even if you’re a beginner. All we’re looking for is podcasts with big ideas!
To enter My RØDE Cast:

This year, we have a panel of podcasting heavyweights from different corners of the industry who will be deciding on the winners. They’ll be looking for podcasts that are original, engaging, and leave them wanting more. They’ll also be judging the production of each podcast – audio quality, editing skills, use of music and sound effects, flow and delivery.
