About Kedar Nimkar

Hello and welcome to a brand new episode of Audiogyan. I am super excited to announce that today Audiogyan turns 2. Yes! I started this podcast exactly 2 years ago on 27th December 2016 and It’s been a great journey so far.

This episode will capture the Top 5 insights of 2018 but before that, a quick recap of the past and what’s coming up and how can you be a part of it.

For those who have tuned into Audiogyan for the first time, Audiogyan is a weekly podcast for those interested in Design and Arts. It releases every Wednesday. Audiogyan doesn’t celebrate the guests’ accomplishments or take a trip down memory lane; rather it objectively documents work, case studies, first principles of individuals who have devoted their life in the field of Design and performing arts.

In the last 2 years, Audiogyan through its 102 episodes has been able to document, 100+ guests that are almost 3000 plus minutes of documentation and reached 1 lac plus listens. We also partnered with Kultureshop, Hubhopper, Storytel, and the biggest podcast partnership with Design Up.

What’s coming up? Well, new branding, new website, introducing a Blog, and a new series called Audiogyan case studies. 2 of the case studies are already live. Case study episodes take a deep dive into one project, campaign, or design solution. All this has taken a lot of effort and time. Thanks to DesignString & a Special thanks to Yashwanth, Nitish Mohanty, and the team.

We also started a Fundraiser campaign to keep Audiogyan going and really appreciate your small donation if you like the show. This will not only help me paying those who help me in running this show but also will be a motivating factor. Your donations will be used for site maintenance and recordings.
