About Mags Creative

Mags Creative produces podcasts, reaching millions of listeners monthly. We make shows such as Deliciously Ella, Castaway with Laura Whitmore and Who Cares Wins with Lily Cole. We work with top-tier brands such as Google and Facebook to create meaningful branded podcasts that truly connect people.

Our Ethos

We believe fiercely in the power of meaningful audio to bring people together and make connections. So we make podcasts that do just that. And we don’t want to stop there. We also believe in building things - companies, podcasts, humans - steadily and sustainably. We’re in this for the long haul. We hope to make the world a better place, and we work to do this in many other ways outside of making meaningful audio.

Our Team

We start with our home team, creating a safe, supportive and happy working environment for our team and everyone that we interact with. We have also made some public commitments, in line with industry experts and advocates, towards causes that we have always felt passionately about. We are signatories to the Sanctus Mental Health Pledge. This is a commitment taken by employers towards treating mental health in the same way as physical health within the workplace. We are signatories to the Equality in Audio Pact. This is a 5 point commitment taken by employers working towards diversity of voices in the audio industry.
