To celebrate the launch of the two most exciting new products in podcasting – the RodeCaster Pro and Rode PodMic – Rode Microphones is proud to announce an all-new competition for podcasters, My Rode Cast.
Entrants simply need to submit a 1-2 minute podcast on any topic and in any format to go in the running to win a share in over $150,000 of podcaster-friendly prizes.


Entering My Rode Cast is simple: Create a 1-2 minute podcast on any topic, in any style or genre (chat, documentary, interviews, news, fiction, etc) that is engaging, entertaining, and impresses Rode’s judges. 


The entries for My Rode Cast will be judged by a trio of podcasting legends:

  • Mike Dawson — Engineer, co-producer and voice of The Adam Carolla Show
  • Jacob Salamon — Co-founder and CEO of Wisecrack
  • Jordon Lott — Content coordinator at Acast and producer of The Thinkergirls podcast

All entries will be judged on originality, creativity and production quality – how clean the audio is, use of music or sound effects, good editing technique, vocal delivery, flow, and so on. Anyone can enter!


My Rode Cast has three prize categories: Major Prize, Runner Up, and People’s Choice – which is awarded to the most popular podcast as voted by the public.

The prizes include Rode microphones and accessories; the RodeCaster Pro Podcast Production Studio; headphones from Urbanears; sound effects from Blastwave FX; software subscriptions from Adobe; tuition from SchoolOfPodcasting; SSDs from Angelbird, acoustic treatment from Primacoustic, and more.

Plus, the first 500 entries will receive a free Rode SC6-L mobile interview kit!
