International Podcast Day™ September 30, 2018
International Podcast Day™ is September 30th and is an international celebration of the power of podcasts! The celebration is a great opportunity to connect with fellow podcasters, podcast listeners, podcast enthusiasts, and leaders in the podcasting industry. Help spread the word by telling your friends, sharing the celebration on your podcasts and social media feeds, and using #InternationalPodcastDay. There are several ways to get involved and plenty to benefit from by taking part in International Podcast Day. See our suggestions below. But first, we must all “Start The Conversation” and share the power of podcasts!
Just as podcasts and podcasting has evolved over the past 14 years, International Podcast Day has done the same. In 2014, National Podcast Day was celebrated with 6 hours of broadcasting. After quickly realizing the power of podcasts internationally, we rebranded into what we are today – International Podcast Day. Between 2015 and 2017, we broadcasted 100 hours around the globe inviting podcasters and industry leaders from 55 different countries to share their podcast journeys, personal stories, and expertise. It is important to recognize the history but move forward celebrating the power of podcasts.
