Co-founder of GetUp launches podcast on PodcastOne

Amanda Tattersall, co-founder of GetUp has launched a podcast on the PodcastOne network.

The announcement:

The first two episodes of a new original podcast, ChangeMakers hits PodcastOne today.

Hosted by co-founder of GetUp, Amanda Tattersall, ChangeMakers is the first podcast of its kind to mix the story-telling form of This American Life with the topic of social change.

“This represents a new era of big-budget podcasting in Australia. It has been delivered by a team of three researchers, two producers, a script editor and three audio engineers.

It shows that the era of podcasting has finally arrived in Australia,” Tattersall said.

The first series of ChangeMakers features stories of people changing the world in 14 countries across the globe. It involved 150 interviews to produce 20 stories across 10 episodes.

“We’ve got a story on anti-Putin activists in Moscow, the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong, plus a chilling story about anti-gun campaigners in the United States.”

Tattersall said there are plenty of Australian campaigns that cut it on the world stage. The second episode features the “Lock the Gate” campaign, which has been a template for anti-Gas Drilling campaigns across the globe.

Amanda Tattersall is no stranger to digital innovation, having previously co-founded the digital campaign group GetUp. As an academic, she has written the book on building effective coalitions (Power in Coalition, Cornell University Press, 2009).

“Whether you’re wanting to stop climate change or defeat the creeping Trumpification of Australia, new ways of change-making are necessary. ChangeMakers is about sharing stories of new strategies that work from across the globe, she said.

Grant Tothill Head of PodcastOne said, “ChangeMakers represents the beginning of a new era in Podcasting production in Australia. I’m proud that PodcastOne was able to partner with ChangeMakers to make this possible.”

There will be 10 episodes in the ChangeMakers series.  Listen here at PodcastOne.com.au http://bit.ly/2z9fmZE, or via the PodcastOne app and the iTunes store.
