Perth Podcast Festival Launch & Panel Discussion

Perth Podcast Festival is back for 2020, with more events and opportunities for the media community than ever before!

  • Elsa Silberstein: Radio Producer at ABC

Stick around afterwards to network with likeminded individuals in the media community, and enjoy hearing about what’s to come during Perth Podcast Festival 2020.

A bit more about your panellists…
