Made by Mortals are a not for profit theatre organisation that specialise in collaborating with communities to create powerful performance. Their podcast for kids Armchair Adventures is a fictional series made with their over 55’s actors group. It was conceived in lockdown to bring people together when they couldn’t be physically.


To attract listeners and raise awareness of the Armchair Adventures podcast.


  • Promote Armchair Adventures
  • Boost awareness of Made by Mortals
  • Increase the reach of the podcast globally
"MIC’s got us a massive reach and maximum exposure for our Armchair Adventures Podcast. We wouldn’t have been able to do this on our own. We've even had an endorsement from the future King!

We love MIC’s methodical and personable approach and their communication. We get a lot of value for our money with MIC."


  • Series 1 launched without a strategy
  • No podcast marketing skills in-house & too busy 
  • Lack of knowledge of the podcast landscape
  • Required a supplier with both knowledge of community-focused organisatiion and podcasting.
  • Must also be able to fit with Made by Mortal’s flexible working style
  • Current marketing didn’t fit with the target audience


  • A tailored Armchair Adventures marketing strategy that included:
    • Designing an ‘identity’ for AA, such as revitalising copy to fit a more colloquial, friendly tone of voice
    • A promotional campaign with regular social media activity 
    • Influencer, press and industry alignment 
    • Design of new marketing assets like audiograms, blogs and transcriptions
    • Website & SEO update
    • Community development
  • Podcast MOT health check – adjusting podcast descriptions, artwork, podcast structure, etc to maximise exposure. This is ongoing and reactive
  • Industry introductions and awareness-raising
“Through the success of our Armchair Adventures podcast we’re building reputation, confidence and trust amongst current and potential funders. As a result, they’re more likely to fund us. Working with MIC has helped us to successfully position ourselves in this way.”
