The Wheeler Centre Presents Radiotopia and Beyond with Julie Shapiro
Tuesday, 5 December 2017
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
You might think of Julie Shapiro as a master listener. She was a co-founder and the artistic director of the highly respected Third Coast International Audio Festival, and spent time in Australia as executive producer of ABC RN’s Creative Audio Unit. Today, she’s the executive producer of Radiotopia – Boston-based podcast network home to 99% Invisible, Ear Hustle and Song Exploder. She visits Melbourne this December to share insights from her long career in listening – and to discuss collaboration, reinvention and the long view in the era of the podcast, with host Sophie Black.
In the second part of this event, Julie Shapiro will lend us her ears and a judge of So You Think You Can Pod – the Wheeler Centre’s search for new, audible ideas – alongside Audiocraft executive director Kate Montague, Australian podcast producer Eric George (Bowraville, Ballarat’s Children) and Wheeler Centre senior digital editor Jon Tjhia.
