GEORGE MCDONAGH |
EXPERIENCED PODCAST PRODUCER
Hi! My name is George and I’m a multi-award winning audio producer. I use my specialist skills to help people develop, create and distribute podcasts. I've produced a documentary for BBC Radio 1, worked with The Jockey Club, Sony Music and The Guardian; and in my previous role at Pixiu, I worked with (+ won awards for) major brands like The Royal Horticulture Society.
I am also executive producer of the British Podcast Award Winning Power Corrupts Podcast, which has had over two million downloads to date; and producer of the Goalhanger Podcasts show, Disorder.
Here are just some of the projects I've been working on recently.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
George produced and skilfully edited our 'AfterWords' podcast. The result was the engaging, high-quality, and polished content we were hoping for.
