Following YouTube’s March announcement at Hot Pod Summit, that podcasts are coming to YouTube Music, Lomax has confirmed she will feature on one of the five panels hosted by Listen and Arcade: as YouTube’s only presence that day.

“I’m a big fan of what Jordan is doing on Unboxed, and I’m excited to share what YouTube has in store for users, creators and the wider podcast economy” – Alison Lomax.

Alison will join Listen MD Josh Adley, hose of the Unboxed podcast and co-founder of Arcade Media, Jordan Schwarzenberger and YouTuber and podcast host, Patricia Bright.

“We’re delighted to have Alison join our stage. YouTube’s role and presence in podcasting is not only huge now, but increasing massively this year. To host her only panel across the show, and hear directly from their MD at one of the most important podcast events of the year was a priority for us.’ – Josh Adley.
