About The Game Changers

We were absolutely thrilled to be commissioned to work on the launch of this podcast celebrating the trailblazers in women’s sport.  We’ve just been re-commissioned for season 6!

We worked closely with host Sue Anstiss and her team throughout the planning stages of the podcast, devising the concept and structure of the season and advising on all aspects of remote recording and equipment and coaching presenter Sue Anstiss through the interview preparation and execution process. We helped craft questions and form story arcs for each epsiode.

We then edited and mixed each epsiode with the raw audio delivered to us, set up RSS feed and hosting and pushed out to all major platforms.
