Audio is booming. More people than ever before are tuning in to podcasts and audiobooks, making it the perfect medium for telling stories and spreading ideas. But today’s listeners expect professional-sounding production, engaging stories and interesting voices.

We don’t just ‘make podcasts’. We’ll work with you to develop and produce top quality audio content that dovetails with your wider communications strategy and goals, and help you get it into the right ears.

First Create The Media’s production team has more than two decades of experience in radio and podcasting for a wide range of organisations from the BBC to corporate clients, universities and charities.

We also team up with expert producers and animators to storyboard and create engaging video content.

Our podcasts have won or been highly commended for a number of awards including the British Society for the History of Science Ayrton prize, recognising outstanding digital engagement in the history of science, technology and medicine.

“The Genetics Society is delighted with Genetics Unzipped. The podcast is always fascinating, as well as being informal and entertaining, and, most important for us, always gets the science spot-on. It strongly supports the science communication and engagement goals of the Society.”
