Podcast | Celebrating 100 episodes of the Conservation Careers Podcast
In this special conversation we’re celebrating the 100th episode of the Conservation Careers Podcast!
The Conservation Careers Podcast was launched on 21st June 2018, and over the past five years we’ve talked to so many different people within the conservation sector, played with the format and enjoyed the ride.
We’re proud to say that we’ve had 152,136 unique podcast downloads and a typical episode gets 1,500 to 2,000 listeners. We also have a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts and we’re the top conservation podcast on Spotify!
For our 100th episode, we thought we’d reflect on the podcast journey so far and share some of the lessons learnt.
We also take a look behind the scenes of the podcast – at how we pull it together and edit it – and share hints and tips we’ve picked up along the way. If you’re interested in doing your own podcast, you might be able to take something away and start one for yourself (it’s super easy!)
Joining me for this episode is my ‘partner in crime’, Kristi Foster, Head of Engagement at CC.
Most importantly, thank YOU for being here and supporting the Conservation Careers Podcast – we hope you’ve enjoyed the journey too!

If you can share with your friends that would also be great. If you’ve got any questions or suggestions for the podcast please tweet them to @ConservCareers. We’d love to hear from you!
