ELSIE BATH

CENTRAL LONDON

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism as the podcast world was finding its own niche in the media landscape. What captivated me about podcasting when it first emerged was its ability to tell a detailed and thoroughly researched story while holding the listener's hand through the process. In the field of audio production, I have worked across a wide range of outputs, including short packages for SYN Media’s current affairs show Panorama. I continued to work within a collaborative team and hone my research skills when I took on the role of Producer for the Sound As Ever podcast; a documentary podcast that celebrated the history of Australian music, in partnership with the Melbourne Arts Centre. This entailed working with a group of producers to brainstorm the themes that would be covered, pitch, research, script and edit the final episodes. Since moving to London I have continued to work in audio environments; both as a broadcast producer at Soho Radio and in freelance podcast production. This has allowed me to expand my knowledge of all aspects of production while also giving me the opportunity to work with a diverse range of voices and across a wide range of formats. My experience has taught me the craft of a scripted but conversational story that invites the audience in. The unique qualities that make audio such a widely consumed media are inherent in podcasting. However, whether it be to inform, entertain or keep company, a podcast should always be engaging for its audience.
