ABC Audio Studios is the ABC's digital-first audio content production house. We make compelling and distinctive podcasts for an audience on-the-go.
Before pitching a podcast idea, please look over our suite of podcasts to ensure you're pitching something new.
It's also worth reading these articles which give you a sense of the type of content we're looking to create.
