First entering the world of podcasting in 2020, Liam Heffernan volunteered in hospital radio for many years. His first podcast, short-form review show 2 Minute Movies, won Best Entertainment Podcast at the Podcasting for Business Awards in 2021, and since then he has been working professionally as a producer and production manager on numerous shows.
Heffernan has brought his podcast experience to the Hospital Broadcasting Association to lead the launch of the HBA's podcast network in 2022 and create enormous value for the voluntary broadcasting sector. The network supports the 150-plus hospital radio stations in the UK with a free way to diversify their audio content and create additional fundraising streams. He also co-founded Emmeline, a podcast network for female and non-binary podcasters in 2022.
