In this week’s episode, we welcome Imriel Morgan, CEO and founder of Content is Queen, who shares her passionate perspective on the up-and-coming podcast scene.
We start the episode by delving into a piece by Wired on how tech industry layoffs will potentially undo workforce diversity gains, where Imriel describes how “the diversity element of the workforce tends to come much later for a lot of big organisations and companies; it’s an afterthought.”
As an expert in the podcast industry, Imriel gives her insight on corporate takeovers which are changing podcasting and mentions how “It goes against what podcasting started out to be, which was a place where we can tell our stories and on our own terms and create our own niches.”
Content is Queen is a podcast agency created to represent “an inclusive and safe space for people to create” and built around Imriel’s founding principle that inclusion is a process rather than an outcome and your participation is essential.
Imriel shares how she produced the UK’s first and only women’s podcast festival that unites the global community of female innovators and leaders in podcasting, providing an inclusive and inviting space for women to connect and build long-lasting communities.
Our conversation leads us to find out more about how Imriel has revolutionised the podcast industry, her prediction for the tech for good space, and what she thinks is the evilest application of tech.
