NOVA Entertainment unveils first winner of Podquest

Staff Writer

NOVA Entertainment has announced Phoebe Parsons, creator of Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck, as the inaugural winner of Podquest.

The Queenslander will have access to NOVA Entertainment’s production facilities, technical expertise and distribution channels to create a podcast series for release soon.

Parsons will also talk about her winning entry at the Audiocraft Conference on 10 June in Sydney.

Jay Walkerden, NOVA Entertainment’s head of podcasting said the network was impressed with the quality and diverse range of subjects that were submitted for the first ever Podquest initiative.

“Our internal and external judging panel, including Adam Martin, Acast’s Chief Content Officer and Ashley Earnshaw, Chief Investment Officer for Carat Australia, found Phoebe presented in a humorous and engaging way while being an excellent story teller,” he said.

“Confessions of a Twenty Something Trainwreck stood out as an authentic concept that had great potential to extend into a series.”

Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck focuses on Phoebe, a twenty something train wreck who’s failed just about every aspect of adult life. From men and money, to health insurance and housemates, she has been there, done that.

After hearing the raw audio of Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck, NOVA Entertainment worked with Phoebe to produce a two-minute trailer for the series.

NOVA Entertainment says it received hundreds of entries from across the country and also confirmed that a second series of Podquest will begin shortly.
