Nova uncovers twenty something trainwreck

Phoebe Parsons, Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck, has been named as NOVA Entertainment‘s  inaugural winner of Podquest, an initiative which was launched to discover and support new and emerging podcasters from around Australia.

NOVA Entertainment received hundreds of entries, from talented content creators all over the country, since launching the initiative on 7 April this year.

A second series of Podquest will commence shortly to kickstart the careers of more aspiring podcasters.

Phoebe entered her podcast, Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck, and has won a production and marketing grant. The Queenslander will have access to NOVA Entertainment’s production facilities, technical expertise and distribution channels to create a podcast series for release soon. She will also talk about her winning entry at the Audiocraft Conference 2017 on June 10 in Sydney.

Jay Walkerden, NOVA Entertainment’s Head of Podcasting said, “We were impressed with the quality and diverse range of subjects that were submitted for the first ever Podquest initiative. Our internal and external judging panel, including Adam Martin, Acast’s Chief Content Officer and Ashley Earnshaw, Chief Investment Officer for Carat Australia, found Phoebe presented in a humorous and engaging way while being an excellent story teller. Confessions of a Twenty Something Trainwreck stood out as an authentic concept that had great potential to extend into a series.”

Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck focuses on Phoebe, a twenty something train wreck who’s failed just about every aspect of adult life. From men and money, to health insurance and housemates, she has been there, done that.

After hearing the raw audio of Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck, NOVA Entertainment worked with Phoebe to produce a two-minute trailer for the series.
