The Big Light, whose investors include Ian Rankin, Val McDiarmid and Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr, has acquired a new studio and office space in Pacific Quay.
With a state-of-the-art recording space, editorial suite and production office, co-founders Fiona White and Janice Forsyth will be able to grow their content and unlock revenue streams.

Fiona said: “Podcasting is the fastest growing sector of digital media and having a brand new studio space in the heart of Scotland’s media district will allow us to capitalize on this opportunity.
“Janice and I created The Big Light in early 2020, and a lot of our production was — necessarily — away.
“With our amazing network of podcasts, we have enjoyed continued growth and now hope to take it even further.
“It is great to be up and running in our new space which will allow us to build our commercial capacity.”
Fiona also spoke of her excitement at sharing her office space with marketing agency Frame.
She added, “Sharing a space with Frame’s team of 70 professionals in PR, advertising, design, content and digital media will also help us open up new creative opportunities.”
The award-winning podcaster has created content for major streaming services such as Spotify, BBC Sounds and the National Trust.

She also creates original podcasts of popular weekly shows such as TalkMedia with Stuart Cosgrove and Professor Eamonn O’Neill, Blethered with Sean McDonald, and Talking Derry Girls.
Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr, an investor in The Big Light, said he’s a “huge fan” of the growing podcast.
“We believe the opportunity to support The Big Light should not be missed as it inevitably rises from one level of success to another,” he added.
Fellow investor and author Val McDiarmid added: “In these challenging times it is essential to have independent voices, particularly here in Scotland, and especially from the arts.
“We all need food for our souls, and that promise made me want to be a part of the Big Light Journey.”
Sir Ian Rankin, author of the popular Rebus novels, added: “I don’t think John Rebus likes podcasts very much – although who knows these days?
But for me, it’s a vibrant can-do that has a lot to say. (And I should add, both John and I are longtime fans of Janice Forsyth.)
“So, three cheers and bunnies up high for The Big Light!”
