Starting soon, SYN will release two original podcasts created and produced by young people in SYN’s 2020/21 Podcast Incubator program.
SYN’s Podcast Incubator is a mentoring and professional development program for emerging producers all under the age of 26. Producers in the program receive an industry mentor, production training and close support from SYN to develop their podcast idea.
This year, participants were selected through a highly competitive application round open to all young people anywhere in Australia. They received training and support from industry mentors Erin Kyan, Jessica Hamilton and Zain Nabi to develop their podcasts.
The SYN 2021 Podcast Incubator podcasts are:
Twinemies - Grace Valerie-Lynette
Twinemies, a musical queer rom-com about competitive twin sisters who start a bet to see who can complete the most items off ‘teenage bucket list’. Along the way the twins both fall for people who are so wrong, but so right, and learn that maybe love is more important than winning.
Five Eyes - Benjamin Polazzon and Timna Katz
As government officials inexplicably go missing, five spies are tasked with uncovering their whereabouts. Conspiracies are spreading like wildfire. Discoveries only lead to more questions. With war on the horizon, time is not on their side.
The 2021 Podcast Incubator was made possible with support from the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
Twinemies and Five Eyes are coming soon. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
