A gold rush of podcasts with Radio New Zealand


On Podcast Radio, you'll hear some phenomenal content from Radio New Zealand (RNZ) over the next few months.


On-air across Greater London, and around the world via our app, you can catch seven of RNZ’s most popular podcasts, including the award-winning true crime podcast Gone Fishing.


Podcast Radio CEO Gerry Edwards made the Radio New Zealand partnership public whilst at the RAIN Summit in New York (Radio and Internet News).


Gerry said: “We’re excited to sign our first content partnership with such a prestigious international broadcaster. I started my career in New Zealand and know what brilliant, high quality, beautifully produced programmes RNZ make. These podcasts are fantastic and we’re so proud to showcase and share them on Podcast Radio.”


Apart from Gone Fishing (which won Gold medal for Best Podcast at the New York Festivals Radio Awards last year), the other RNZ podcasts to be aired across London will be mental health podcast Eating Fried Chicken In The Shower; The Lost featuring true stories of missing people; true crime parody KillJoy; Black Sheep on the history of infamous New Zealand villains; The Long Way Home with the story of a trek across the country; and the story of The Worst Sitcom Ever Made.


Tim Watkin, Executive Producer, RNZ Podcasts and Series, says: “We’re thrilled some of our amazing podcasts can now be heard on the radio in the UK. RNZ podcasts are known for pushing boundaries so we’re really impressed with what Podcast Radio is trying to do. We look forward to a fruitful partnership that showcases the best of what we do and encourages people to download the whole series and browse our other shows.”
