They say there’s an international day for everything, but have you heard of International Podcast Day?
The fifth annual International Podcast Day drops on Sunday 30 September, a day dedicated entirely to the humble podcast.
As a celebration, it’s a great opportunity to connect with fellow podcasters, podcast listeners, podcast enthusiasts, and leaders in the podcasting industry.
What’s happening for 2018?
September 30 isn’t all the far away. When International Podcast Day started, it began with a few hours of content and it’s now grown to around 30 hours of streaming content, plus podcaster meet ups, listener parties, comedy shows and more.
This year’s streaming content begins with Steve Lee in the US at 4pm PDT on 29 September (or midnight Irish time) to kick off International Podcast Day and set the tone for the day. From there there’s sessions on
- Creating connections
- Monetizing your podcast
- Maximising your podcast reach
- Using WhatsApp over email for subscribers
- Building a Middle East podcast scene
- Using live events as a podcast growth strategy
and that’s just for starters.
It’s a fairly jam-packed schedule bringing together speakers from the US, Ireland, Philippines, France, Australia, Argentina, South Africa, India and beyond. Content closes out at 10PM PDT on 30 September (or 6am 1 October if you’re among the Irish readers).
