Cited Media develops podcasts with research-focussed organizations that work in the public interest, especially: universities and scholarly organizations, health authorities, community organizations, professional associations, and other educational and advocacy-focussed not-for-profits. These podcasts generally aim at knowledge mobilization, professional development, or community engagement. A few of our clients are highlighted below, with brief trailers. In each case, Cited Media was commissioned to offer consulting or production support, but the podcasts are published by the client (unlike our own Cited-published content).
