    Four More Judges Confirmed:


    With momentum behind podcast registrations continuing to grow (now at 168), we've been busy behind the scenes augmenting the judging panel, which has now stretched to eight industry experts, and will continue to grow. We are excited to announce the addition to the panel of:


    Dave Lee (USA) - Co-Founder of International Podcast Day

    Jarrod Pickford (VIC) - Founder of Podmatcher

    Josh Butt (NSW) - Content producer at MediaCom Beyond Advertising

    We welcome and thank Josh, Sara, Dave and Jarrod, and we look forward to sharing their bios on the new website, when we relaunch on 28th November.


    Cast Away Weekly Podcast on the Omny Discovery Feed:


    Cast Away is the Australian podcasting awards, and we consider it part of our role to also BE a podcaster - to keep in touch with the realities podcasters contend with at the coalface of this pursuit. Our podcast Cast Away Weekly* is basically this newsletter in podcast format. We're keeping it simple for now, but who knows what will develop!


    Hosted by Whooshkaa, available on iTunes, we're also included in Omny Studio's Podcast Discovery Feed, an intuitive discovery innovation from Omny Studio, which can be utilised by listeners via most devices and podcatching apps.


    We asked Sophie Kneebone, Omny Podcast Manager, how Discovery Feed has been going. "The response to the Discovery Feed has been incredibly positive. We've had over 800 subscribers to the feed since it launched and a wide range of podcasters have submitted their shows to be included in it. We're excited to see that number grow even more!"


    Dave makes guest appearance on Space Welders Podcast:


    I was lucky enough to be invited on Space Welders podcast a few weeks back, where Mike, Steve and I chatted in depth about the awards within the context of trends in podcasting, and other tech developments. Having appeared previously on The Razor Sharp Show (thanks Ray, and sorry for the belated shoutout), I am available to chat about Cast Away if anyone would like me on their show, as these lovely hosts have done.
