Athena Media's Helen Shaw on a golden age for podcasting

Athena Media's managing director Helen Shaw spoke on the Marian Finucane show on Saturday 17th January about the "Serial" podcast and it's rapid rise as a global sensation. Serial has also sparked a conversation around Podcasting as a medium, which Helen has also spoken about for a feature in the Irish Independent.

Athena Media first got involved with podcasting in March 2006 with the launch of Podcasting Ireland. Podcasting Ireland is a dedicated podcasting portal and currently The Family Of Things, a new interview based podcast is been published via the site.
