Richard Davies is an esteemed radio journalist, speaker, podcaster, news junky, and the driving force behind DaviesContent.

For Richard, the road to forming DaviesContent was less of a winding journey and more of a direct path. “I’ve always been captivated by listening to information, listening to music, listening to the radio for news,” says Richard. His fascination with news wasn’t just an exercise in listening. Richard recorded his first newscast at the age of eight using his father’s briefcase-sized Sony tape recorder. He spent countless hours creating handwritten newspapers on A4 paper for his parents. He delivered newspapers each day between the ages of 12 and 14. Those precious childhood moments would foreshadow a nearly four-decade career as a radio reporter and news caster.

Born to a British mum and dad, Richard found himself uprooted at the age of 14 when his parents decided to move back to the U.K. from the U.S. This cultural switch-up left Richard feeling like an outsider, and thus imparted in him an enduring soft spot for the underdog. “I’ve always identified with outsiders and underdogs. I believe societies that accept people outside the mainstream are stronger than those that don’t,” he explains.

Richard’s exceptional career began after he received a degree in history from the University of Sussex in Brighton, England. He found his way back to the U.S. in 1984 to cover the presidential campaign as the station manager for RKO.

His next career move would be his last. He joined ABC as a field reporter, moving into the role of news caster years later, and dedicated 29 years to the company.

In that time, Richard covered news from four continents and 35 U.S. states. He covered the wedding of Princess Diana to Prince Charles; the fall of the Berlin Wall; the run-up to the First Gulf War (on assignment for six weeks in Jordan); the OPEC oil conferences; and the assassination of Anwar Sadat.

Richard’s personal experiences coupled with his illustrious field career helped to mold his vision for DaviesContent. To Richard, a strong message is never just content and a podcast is never just audio. “I’d like to make a difference. I know I’m one pebble in the ocean, but it’s my hope that one pebble can send out enough ripples to change other currents,” he says.

Richard hopes to make waves with DaviesContent, a cause-driven, quality-backed and expertly-managed audio production house led by one of the nation’s most esteemed proponents of truth and positive change.

To hear how Richard contributes personally to the news media climate, listen to his weekly podcast How Do We Fix It? which takes a solutions-focused approach to current events. You can also read Richard's blog here.



Today, there’s no doubting the power of podcasts. With each passing year, podcasting gains mainstream awareness, market dominance, and overall prevalence in the media industry. This article in The Economist puts it simply: “The percentage of American adults polled who had listened to a podcast in the previous month doubled between 2008 and 2015, with over a third of the population having now listened to at least one.”

We owe much of this year-over-year growth to the rapidly evolving way in which we all connect to media. Where live programming once ruled, on-demand and streamed content now reign supreme. Americans have more control than ever over the media they consume.

What’s more, the intergenerational shift is remarkable. According to Edison Research, 68 percent of 13-24 year-olds listen to audio on their smartphones every single day. And yet, this report shows that no single age group dominates listenership, with practically an even distribution between ages 18 and 54 (18-24: 15%; 25-34: 20%; 35-44: 17%; 45-54: 15%). Which other medium has this kind of ageless appeal?

By far the greatest assets of the podcast industry are its affluent, educated, and loyal listeners. These are the fast facts:

  • Nearly a third of listeners have an annual household income of $100,000+
  • 61 percent of listeners buy something they heard about on a podcast
  • 58 percent of listeners have a bachelor's degree or higher
  • 88% listen to most or all episodes of the shows to which they are subscribed
  • Listeners are equally male and female, and reflect the diversity of the U.S. population

The bottom line is clear: Podcasts are no longer a niche platform, and they’ve evolved far beyond their underdog days of yore.

International Organization for Migration’s "Together"

This forthcoming podcast series tells the intimate  personal stories of migrants and refugees from across the world. Using compelling audio and first-rate sound design, the series is hosted with warmth and humor by Ahmed Badr, a charismatic 19 year-old Iraqi-American refugee. In the first two episodes, Badr immerses us in his family’s remarkable refugee story, including the bombing of their home in Baghdad in 2006, and how they fled to Syria and were ultimately resettled in the U.S. by the United Nation’s International Organization for Migration. Richard Davies is the executive producer, responsible for the podcast format, writing and sound design.

The Hagerty Group’s “Side Drafts”

This soon-to-be-released podcast is an ode to the noteworthy characters and tales in the high-shine realm of classic cars. Episodes are hosted by Hagerty Classic Car Editor-in-Chief Larry Webster. Sound design, production and format by DaviesContent.

Mohamad Hafez’s “Unpacked”

Unpacked: Refugee Baggage is a touring exhibition and a testament to the power of audio to humanize its content. Seeking to give a face and voice to the refugee experience, artist and architect Mohamad Hafez partnered with Ahmed Badr (of the “Together” podcast) and DaviesContent to bring refugee stories to life through the marriage of visual art and audio. In the exhibition, the stories of individual refugees are embodied by suitcases that hold streetscapes, building interiors, and other sculptural models of spaces. Accompanying the suitcases are short audio clips in which the refugees tell their stories, thereby forming a personal connection between the viewer and the muse. DaviesContent is a consultant and audio producer for the project. Interviews are conducted by Ahmed Badr.
