In association with our friends at the British Podcast Awards, RIGtrain presents a masterclass featuring the very best in the business - award winners, podcast insiders, and distribution gurus.flyer

Our last event on the subject, was provocatively titled “How to Become a Podcast Millionaire”. Two years on, the podcast sector has exploded, with new ways of monetising content, and some podcasters are starting to prove that it just might be done. Our host is Alix Fox, presenter of The Guardian’s Close Encounters podcast, reigning “Sex Educator of the Year”, and X-rated agony aunt on The Modern Mann.
