Pitch a Podcast Idea

Suno India is a multi-lingual podcast platform using audio as a medium to tell stories that are often underreported in traditional media. Over the past two years, we have produced 15 shows.

To give you an idea of how exhaustive our coverage is, we have produced over 45 episodes about COVID-19 since February, and we are looking to expand our reportage further. We are interested in deep dives, in investigations and perspectives often overlooked.

We are now commissioning stories and currently looking for:
1) Stories from Kashmir
2) Stories from the Northeast
3) COVID-19
4) Telugu contributors for the show Samacharam Sameeksha

Your pitch should include a tentative title, a summary of the idea, people and organisations you would be speaking to, the number of episodes you anticipate you would need, travel details and a timeline. Expertise in producing podcasts isn’t a prerequisite. We will share our guidelines and tips with you once your pitch is approved.

What we are not looking for: monologues, audio essays, self-promotional shows.

We are currently producing shows in English, Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil. Take a look at our shows to find out more.

We will try and respond to every pitch that we receive within two weeks, and sooner for time-sensitive stories.

We pay industry standard rates.

Rolling deadlines. Keep an eye on this form for updated opportunities if your idea doesn’t fit in the current requirements.
