What are we looking for?

The judging criteria for My RØDE Cast is simple – we’re looking for podcasts with big ideas! Your entry can be on any topic and in any style. It can be a condensed version of an existing podcast, a teaser for a longer episode, or a snappy show. We’ll be looking for podcasts that are creative, original, engaging, and leave us wanting more; we’ll also be judging the production of each podcast – audio quality, editing skills, use of music and sound effects, flow and delivery.
