September 30 @ 10AM-11AM PDT – Tiny Switzerland, Huge Creativity
The Swiss are not known to be fast or overly open to experiments. Hence, the podcasting trend has hit the tiny country with some delay. But now, Podcast Club Switzerland is gathering Swiss audio producers to fuel their love for amazing audio content and to help them bring their ideas to live. In this presentation, the driving forces behind the club show you, how they are building a communal podcast studio in the heart of Zurich to ensure that more and more Swiss voices can make themselves heard.
