The Afros & Audio Podcast Festival is in its fourth year, and we’re thrilled to host our annual two-day conference in-person at the Warwick Rittenhouse Square Hotel in Downtown Philadelphia, PA on and on the Whova Conferencing Platform, October 22-23, 2022. This year’s conference will be our second hybrid event since 2019, and we can’t wait to bring together our global community of independent Black podcast creators and audio professionals once again!
At the Afros & Audio Podcast Festival, attendees will have the opportunity to celebrate the progress of the Black podcasting community, as well as identify funding resources for podcast development and sustainability. Attendees will also discover methods for advancing their professional and entrepreneurial goals as well as understand trends and predictions for the podcast industry.
In 2022, our mission is still clear:
Build an inclusive and accessible community that encourages and fosters collaboration. Create a networking experience unlike any other podcast event where attendees, speakers, volunteers, moderators, and our leadership team feels valued, supported and celebrated. Bring together independent Black podcast creatives and professionals to learn and teach skills that will enable us to demand an equal playing field in the global podcast market.
This year, we’re planning a unique mix educational and social events with the goal of connecting aspiring, new, and veteran independent podcast creatives, and audio professionals with relevant opportunities to start and maintain their podcasts and/or podcast-related service or product.
Thank you to this year’s sponsorship partners Libsyn, Disctopia, Heil, PodPros, and More Sauce.
