Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person screenings – a staple promotional event during awards season – has become impossible. So National Geographic Networks’ Chris Albert, EVP of marketing strategy and global communications, and Stephanie Montgomery, Sr. Director of Communications and Awards, had an idea. “Stage” these events a new way, via their first-ever “For Your Consideration” podcast, The Making of: A Nat Geo Podcast. They turned to Benztown, McVay Media, and Sound That BRANDS to produce The Making of: A Nat Geo Podcast, a 12-episode “For Your Consideration” podcast series featuring interviews with Nat Geo Emmy contenders, in front of and behind the camera, and the very first podcast ever created in the “For Your Consideration” category.
