On Wednesday, September 30th, International Podcast Day returns for its second year. Podcast Day was founded by veteran podcasters Steve Lee and Dave Lee. Here’s the idea, as it’s explained on the Podcast Day website:
There is National IPA Day, National Waffle Fries Day, National Pancake Day, and National pretty-much-anything-you-want Day. In the summer of 2013, Steve Lee (founder of Modern Life Network) heard a radio announcement for National Senior Citizens’ Day. Thinking that was pretty cool, it begged the question of why wasn’t there a day of celebration for podcasting. That’s when Steve said to himself ‘Let’s create a Podcast Day!’ So the adventure began and a collective team of podcasters put their heads together to establish methods for podcasters and podcast listeners to raise awareness for this great entertainment and education medium.
A long list of events is planned for Podcast Day. These events will happen all over the world, so the event calendar may technically start on September 29th, depending on your location. These events will cover a wide range of topics and many of them will be streamed thru Blab.
The Podcast Day website has a collection of graphics you can use on your own site and/or social media accounts to help promote the event. So, get out there and get involved with Podcast Day 2015!
