Presented by the ABC, OzPod 2019 connects industry professionals for a day of talks, ideas and collaboration and in 2019 the keynote speakers will be Owen Grover and Dan Blank alongside local podcast creators and experts.

Dan Blank has been an artist in both animation and visual effects (Watchmen, Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar) for many years. His proof-of-concept short Monster Roll was a viral hit, gaining him attention as a creator while his recent audio drama Carrier can best be described as an immersive movie for the ears, harnessing sound techniques and narrative to brilliant effect.
