About

 

 

MIC Media helps good eggs to tell their story through awesome audio.

We’re a British Podcast Award nominated podcast company. We produce podcasts and deliver podcast training. We also host MIC’s Podcast Club, which are regular meetup events for people who are as nuts about making podcasts as we are.

MIC’s uniquely set-up as a social enterprise and we work with a whole host of good eggs from local charities and social enterprises, to large value-led corporates and local authorities. 

The reason that we get out of bed every morning is to provide opportunities for everyone to find their voice through top-notch audio, especially amplifying those voices that often go unheard. Through our work, MIC Media contributes to a richer, more diverse landscape of brilliant audio, where you’ll hear lots of different perspectives, thoughts and experiences.

Vic Elizabeth Turnbull founded MIC in 2019 and she’s also the co-founder of Pods Up North, an annual conference for podcasters. Vic’s racked up almost sixteen years experience across the creative and social good sector. But don’t remind her of that as it makes her feel old.

We 💗 MIC

  • After Googling “How to make a podcast” I thought I need some help here. I spotted that Vic Elizabeth Turnbull runs the MIC media podcasting club. She’s like the Queen B of podcasting! So now I have 2 podcasts – one to tell people about my business which we’ve had some great feedback on and the other I produce just for fun called My Garden Podcast. Today, I looked at the podcasting charts, it’s only Number 30 in the Home and Garden section!

  • At the start of the year, I knew I wanted to start a podcast but other than that I didn’t know how we were going to achieve it. I’d seen something about Vic doing this so I looked her up, saw that she had a podcast that just described exactly how I felt. She’s a really great teacher, she’s a lovely person, you feel at ease with her straight away and she feels like there’s nothing that you can’t do and gives you the guidance that you need.

  • Vic was amazing at helping and supporting me. She gave me those much-needed tips and advice for a complete beginner and amateur podcaster. She helped me get my head around it all with the equipment and how to find the right platform. Basically, she made it a much less daunting and scary task. So now I’ve got The Ambitious Mum Podcast, I’m on my third episode this week and I’m very grateful for her advice and help.

  • After spending months organising a conference and getting the right speakers to inform and inspire our delegates, we wanted to ensure their stories had a legacy and reach way beyond the confines of the four walls and the two days of the event itself. The solution we found was working with MIC Media. Within a couple of weeks of our conference, we were able to launch a series of podcasts recorded live at the event. They’re shareable, accessible anywhere, and they’ve inspired our organisation to explore audio as a whole new communications channel. Thank you!

  • Podcasting was something we’d been keen to try but had no idea where to start. Working with Vic as part of a small group session was an amazing introduction to the process and filled us with the confidence we needed to hit record. Her information was detailed but never overwhelming and, most importantly, made our first episode actually seem possible! Stop contemplating your podcast any further and book a meeting with Vic – you’ll wish you did it sooner!

  • From planning and delivery to post-evaluation, Vic’s podcast training was considered, professional and well-executed throughout. The content was tailored for the learning needs of our workshop attendees and the session was delivered in a way that was engaging, inclusive and got our reporters excited about podcasts. Thank-you Vic for a superb training workshop that built the confidence and knowledge of our community reporters.

  • We launched our podcast today and I want to say thanks! MIC Talks and Edit Club has been invaluable. I can highly recommend MIC’s Events for learning, sharing knowledge, ideas and my favourite thing – creating community around what we do.

    Rachel Goulding – founder, Show Stream
  • Innovative initiatives such a MIC’s Edit Club are a great way of supporting the creative community in such an energised space like The Landing, and where better than the media epicentre of the UK, MediaCity?

    Darren O’Brien – Ecosystems Manager, Barclay’s Eagle Labs
  • I went along to one of MIC’s podcast sessions not sure what to expect, but Vic just made it seem so do-able! Podcasting is an untapped potential market for the good causes sector to shout about the great work they do and raise their profile. MIC cuts through the fears and highlights to us all, regardless of our work, budgets and expertise we can all get going. MIC’s workshops are essential in giving you a push in the right direction and the basic knowledge required to give podcasting a go! Highly recommended.

    MIC has caused me one problem though, I now have no excuse not to get started!

  • Working with Vic has been breath of fresh air, as her knowledge and experience spans the media, VCSE and corporate world. We’re finding that increasingly podcasts are a good tool for Social Enterprises to market themselves, be accessible and cascade information more widely, plus they are good value for money.

    We’ve not yet come across other podcasting training and technical support like MIC, aimed at the VCSE sector.

    Nickala Torkington – Director, Flourish CIC
  • It’s imperative that good causes find ways to reach new audiences through different means. Vic knows how to tell a story and powerful audio will be a great tool for good causes to use. Vic has the expertise to help nurture a charity / community organisation through the process to get them to the point where they’re confident to do it themselves.

    Russell Feingold – Director of CSR, UK Fast
  • Vic’s opened our minds about how using podcasts can showcase our great work and share good practice across the youth sector.

  • “I really enjoyed Vic’s podcasting workshop. I went from thinking they were irrelevant for us, to having a list of 11 podcasts we could start off with! The session really helped me come up with ideas as well as learning about the practicalities.

    We are launching a blog for our charity and we’ll now trial podcasts.”

    Hannah McCowen – Fundraising and Communications Manager, Local Solutions
  • In just three 1:1 sessions, Vic has given me a huge amount of confidence in every aspect of recording my debut podcast. From thinking about the ‘why’, to how to interview and using the technology to use.

    There’s a lot to it and Vic has made it all very accessible to me (and I’m quite a technophobe!). She has bags of enthusiasm and ideas – which has made her a pleasure to work with.
