Spotify Looking For New Female Podcasters of Color

By Posted on 0 1 m read

If you’re a woman of color with an interesting point of view and looking to plunge into the world of podcasting, Spotify wants to hear from you!

According to a recent study, only 22% of podcasts are hosted by women — and an even smaller percentage hosted by women of color. Seeing this as an open opportunity to introduce the world to more female podcasters of color, Spotify unveils Sound Up Bootcamp.

During this weeklong intensive program, which takes place 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. The top three pitches will have the pilot process funded, up to $10,000. All expenses for the week will be paid by Spotify.

If you’re worried about not having prior experience in podcasting, don’t as programming will be targeted towards first-time and amateur podcasters!

The event will take place at Spotify’s New York City offices from June 25-29, 2018. All applications are due by 11:59pm EST on April 10, 2018.

Good luck!
