MIC delivers our Blended Service to help Durham University’s Department of Sociology to help them to launch their brand-new Now and Men podcast.

Now and Men

Listen to Now and Men on Spotify. What’s it like to be a man in the 21st century? How are feminist issues relevant to men? These questions are being discussed more than ever. Our new monthly podcast will delve into these issues with experts like practitioners, activists and researchers.

Sometimes our clients want to learn about how to make a podcast themselves, but also want to make sure that what they’re launching sounds quality and professional. This is exactly what Durham University asked of us. So, this is where MIC Media and our Blended Approach comes in to help create Now and Men.

Durham’s Now and Men’ podcast discusses ‌what‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌like‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌a‌ ‌man‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌21‌st‌ ‌century,‌ ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌feminist‌ ‌issues‌ ‌are‌ ‌relevant‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌lives‌ ‌of‌ ‌men‌ ‌and‌ ‌boys.‌

MIC delivered a series of real-time, virtual workshops, sessions, and homework to get the team to a point where they could record their first interview with their very first guest. Plus, we guided them to set up their podcast ready for the first episode, including best practice when it comes to show notes and cover art. We then made them a gorgeous trailer and the episode.

The team is now equipped with everything they need to continue to make it themselves!

Utilising our Blended Approach MIC Media acts as their best buddy when came to making their podcast and held their (virtual, sanitised) hand along the way.
