  • About the event

    SuperPod 2020 is a two-day live podcasting event, featuring many great comedy and sports based podcasts. We are currently working on our lineup of shows, the latest information is on our website at www.superpod.co.uk.

    This is the second SuperPod event, the first was a 36 hour live podcast back in 2017. This time we're aiming for bigger shows, a bigger venue and an actual paying audience, all to maximise the money we can raise for Sport Relief.

    The event will be free entry to the public during the day, with a ticket only show in the evenings. The whole event will also be streamed online; audio will be available on TuneIn (which will mean it can be accessed on any computer, phone or smart speaker) and the video feed will be available via Facebook Live.

    Why should you sponsor?

    The live stream of the 2017 SuperPod was listened to by over 4,500 people, with more than 2,500 listening again after the event. For 2020 we're aiming for a bigger audience, and also introducing a live video feed to expand our audience, meaning more people will see and hear your name.

    Our sponsors will effectively be paying for our venue hire costs and the costs of paying for the livestream to be possible, meaning that all the donations we receive from the public, and the ticket costs, will all go straight to Sport Relief.


    Al Galpin

    My name is Al, I've been podcasting for a few years as host of The Dead Piett Society and more recently the Ministry of Swooping: a Fake News Podcast.

    I was inspired by two friends putting on a 24 hour podcast back in 2016 and set out to do something similar, and the end result was the 36 hour live podcast The Southampton SuperPod which I organised on my own. Podcasters from Southampton, London, Birmingham and Bournemouth joined us in person at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton, while shows from Australia, Finland, Canada and the US all joined us via the internet. 

    I've been determined to do a second event, bigger and better than before, ever since. But this year, after starting a family last year, the time was right to give it another go. This time I have a good team to help, mainly podcasters who were there in 2017 and are keen to be involved again.

    Outside of podcasting I work in International Health Insurance Claims, am a keen supporter of Southampton Football Club, founder of the Redbridge Raiders Softball Club and a Pointless finalist.
