This past weekend I hosted a podcast meetup in Denver at library...

Three local podcasts came out That Podcast, The Black Mile and Singleing. I’m going to listen to at least one episode of each. I have already started Singleling, i'm 4 episodes in, love it. My fav episode is episode 26, so far because of the crack love story. It was unexpected. 

This was a really fun time, the next Denver meetup will be in May.

Have you heard about the Spotify's WOC Sound Up Bootcamp. Applications due April 10th. Great opportunity for WOC in podcasting.

Women of color have been breaking ground in podcasting well ahead of the latest boom. But there's plenty more to be done -- a recent study showed that only 22 percent of podcasts are hosted by women, and the number’s even smaller when it comes to women of color. To move towards equity for women of color in podcasting, Spotify is launching the Sound Up Bootcamp, a weeklong intensive program for aspiring female podcasters of color. Over the course of five days in New York City, ten hand-selected attendees will learn about the art of podcast creation, from initial ideation to editing, producing, and marketing from experts in the field. On the final day, attendees will have the chance to pitch their podcast ideas to a panel of experts and professionals -- and the top three pitches will have the pilot process funded, up to $10,000. All expenses for the week will be paid by Spotify.

Also still time to apply for the Pineapple Street FM Job DUE APRIL 15th

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) launched NYC’s first Podcast Certificate Program in January 2018.
This eight-week-long, tuition-free program focuses on job placement: teaching up-and-coming podcasters the editorial and technical skills to kick-start a full-time career in podcasting.
The coursework—developed by the Media Center, MOME, and Kerry Donahue (Director of Training at PRX and former Director of Radio Programs at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism)—provides a comprehensive overview and hands-on experience of all elements of podcast-making, including development, production, post-production, distribution and monetization.
Our upcoming Spring 2018 program is produced with the support of Voxnest.
