Leveraging the power of audio, Rising Giants Network (RGN) and prominent global audio equipment manufacturer, Shure, have teamed up to support aspiring podcasters, by providing them with tools to create their immersive stories.

Launched earlier this week, the campaign titled ‘Tstahel Podcast’ (which translates to ‘You Deserve A Podcast’) will take place across UAE, KSA, Jordan and Egypt, with those interested, pitching their podcast ideas as an Instagram story tagging RGN and Shure, while also using the dedicated hashtags - #RGNxShure.

Currently solely targeted towards an Arabic speaking audience, RGN and Shure will jointly vet the submissions after which five Arabic podcast ideas will be selected on June 22nd, 2022 . 

The winners will receive their own customized microphone from Shure and if they’re based in Dubai or Riyadh, they will be invited to record at RGN’s studios. The shows will be solely produced by RGN.

Commenting on the new campaign launch, Co- Founder and CEO Basel Anabtawi said: “This effort underscores RGN's continuous commitment to supporting the region's podcasting sector. Podcast audience is at an all-time high and we believe efforts such as Tstahel Podcast (You Deserve A Podcast), will play a critical role in further expanding and developing the industry as a whole. If you think you have an enthralling story to tell with stellar communication skills, we’re surely listening!”
