Attention university students in the UK! Spotify has unveiled Spotify Next Wave, a new initiative searching for student podcasters and emerging voices who will shape the future of podcasting!

According to Spotify’s annual global Culture Next Trends Report, 68% of Gen Zs and millennials said that podcasts help fuel self-discovery. Spotify believes that initiatives like this will help empower emerging voices in podcasting, as part of their commitment to deliver a unique, differentiated experience for users and creators.

Students in the UK can sign up – whether they already have a podcast or have been thinking about starting one. For all students who sign up for Spotify Next Wave (until November 27th), Spotify is providing access to a virtual podcast webinar hosted by JaackMaate as well as a free, three-month trial** of Soundtrap for Storytellers, a one-stop-shop online studio for high quality podcast creation.
