ReliefWeb is the leading humanitarian information source on global crises and disasters. It is a specialized digital service of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). We provide reliable and timely information, enabling humanitarian workers to make informed decisions and to plan effective response. We collect and deliver key information, including the latest reports, maps and infographics and videos from trusted sources. ReliefWeb is also a valuable resource for job listings and training programs, helping humanitarians build new skills and discover exciting new career opportunities. To make information more accessible to humanitarians, we are moving to new mediums of information delivery. In a recent user survey of our training section, we noticed significant demand for humanitarian podcasts. These podcasts include capacity-building training courses as well as informative discussions on humanitarian affairs. We have already started compiling various podcasts that would be of interest to our users and need assistance in designing a web page to host it. Basic mock-up: http://bit.ly/2huhr9K
