PodTales 2020 is an online festival of audio drama and fiction podcasting. It will occur throughout the first three weekends of November. Culminating in the presentation of The Sarahs, The Sarah Lawerence College International Audio Fiction Awards.
Here is a portion of PodTales Diversity Statement:
PodTales is committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, ethnicity, neurodiversity, and disability status. We aim to ensure every aspect of our show adheres to that commitment, including the assembly of our programming, showcases, pod grants, and anything else that comes into planning this show. We recognize the ongoing oppression of white supremacy and the vital importance and necessity of committing to antiracism, as an organization and as individuals. We aim to host a show that is inclusive and equitable for all who partake, including our attendees, exhibitors, and guests. PodTales is for everyone.
Each day during throughout the month of November, the Podcast Showcase will spotlight a different episode of a different audio storytelling podcast submitted by the creators in the PodTales 2020 dedicated podcast feed. Members of the showcase will also be highlighted on their website.
Podcasts submitted must fall within the art form of imaginative audio storytelling, including audio drama, audio fiction, and real play podcasts. Podcasts must be an original work created and owned by the person or team submitting them.
Podcasters can fill out the PodTales 2020 Podcast Showcase Application if they would like to participate. The application deadline is September 18th at 11:59 PM to be considered.
