Acast are one of biggest podcast companies in the world. They have promoted recent BCFE Radio student and Media Management Degree graduate Jennifer Dollard to Content Director for Ireland to lead the company’s podcast development efforts in the market where she will work with new and established podcasting talent.

Jennifer has been a producer with Today FM and then moved to London to take up her former position of Senior Content Development Manager.

Jennifer gives at least one guest lecture a year to BCFE Radio Students and one to one guidance in developing their own Podcasts. The students are also given their own ACE Package, effectively the highest membership package available. Out students are given their own Podcast Kit and Portable recorders to keep.
