The latest episode of Broadcast Tech Talks podcast series is with LADbible Group head of original programming, Ben Powell-Jones.

It’s a fascinating discussion about what content resonates the most with the social media giant’s audiences across its plethora of social platforms. Powell-Jones also reveals how data is used extensively by the group to determine future strategies and even influence the edits of future episodes of original formats.

The podcast also covers the style and tone of the coronavirus-related content the LADbible Group is creating, to educate rather than frighten its audience.


This Broadcast Tech Talks episode arrives on the same day the LADbible Group announces a new slate of original programming, which is also discussed in the podcast.

The programming includes new original series Corona Diaries and second and third series of viral successes The Gap and Agree to Disagree.
