Join the UK’s #1 Data Protection Podcast

With over 12,000 plays on Spotify, 1,200 subscribers, and a thriving community, our podcast Data Protection Made Easy has become a go-to resource for staying up-to-date on the latest developments in data protection. In this article, we invite you to explore the unique features of our podcast, the benefits of becoming a subscriber, and the exciting opportunities to collaborate as a guest speaker.

Unveiling a Refreshing Approach
Data Protection Made Easy stands out from the competition by offering a refreshing and engaging format. Rather than following a monotonous script, our podcast features lively conversations between speakers. This approach creates an atmosphere that is both informative and relaxed, making data protection topics accessible to a wider audience. Our focus is on simplifying complex areas of data protection such as Subject Access Requests, Data Protection Impact Assessments or Data Protection Audits. We have a live chat function running alongside the live discussion allowing our audience to ask questions, share opinions or even request to speak and share their views.

Diverse Session Formats
We strive to provide valuable content through a variety of session formats. Our podcast alternates between two distinct types of episodes:

GDPR Radio: This session brings you the latest news from the world of data protection. Our experts delve into recent fines, breaches, updates to laws, and other noteworthy events. By participating in GDPR Radio, you will stay informed about the ever-evolving landscape of data protection.

Topical and Educational Sessions: In these episodes, our experts deep-dive into specific subjects, simplifying complex topics for our audience. From “Simplifying SARs” to “Understanding Rights Requests,” our conversations provide practical tips and insights to help you navigate various data protection challenges.

Collaboration and Guest Speaker Opportunities
We value the expertise of industry professionals and frequently invite guest speakers to join our discussions. Our podcast has previously collaborated with organisations on topics such as PCI DSS, Cyber Security Assessments, ISO 27001, and more. By joining us as a guest speaker, you not only gain exposure to our rapidly growing community but also benefit from the business opportunities that arise as a result.

Convenient and Inclusive Sessions
Our podcast discussions take place every Friday from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM and are hosted on Microsoft Teams. This platform allows us to connect with guests from all across the UK, ensuring a diverse range of perspectives for our community. While the sessions are live, we also record them and publish the podcast on 12 different streaming platforms, including Amazon Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. This accessibility enables you to engage with our content at your convenience. Looking at the Spotify statistics we can see that a large number of people tune-in once the session has been published rather than joining us live, we have had members of our community say they have enjoyed listening in while they are traveling, gardening or even in the gym. The relaxed style of conversations mean our podcasts are an easy listening experience

The Power of Community
When we started the podcast two years ago, our subscribers consisted solely of clients, totalling 40 individuals. However, since transitioning to a weekly podcast format and opening up the sessions to all interested parties, our subscriber base has experienced tremendous growth. We now proudly boast 1,200 subscribers and have become one of the fastest-growing Data Protection Communities in the UK. By becoming a subscriber, you gain exclusive access to our sessions and become part of this thriving community.

Collaboration Guidelines
To ensure the integrity of our podcast and maintain our focus on valuable content, we prefer to collaborate with individuals who offer services that do not directly compete with ours. By avoiding any conflicts of interest, we can promote and share our content freely. We do not sell or promote our own services on the session, we want these discussions to feel like a conversation between enthusiasts this approach fosters trust among our audience, as they recognise our commitment to delivering authentic and unbiased insights.
