Two Days of Powerful Talks and a Commitment to Community and Collaboration

In 2019, The first-ever Black independent podcast creatives and audio professionals hybrid conference kicked off in Brooklyn, New York. 

We are proud to have been given the opportunity to create a conference experience that's unlike any other and quickly becoming one of the most anticipated annual events in the podcasting industry.

Our primary mission is to:

  • shift the conversation beyond the issues of diversity/inclusion, limited resources, and industry barriers.

  •  transform the current landscape of the Podcast Industry with a greater representation of Black Podcast Professionals.

  • design and maintain infrastructures of sustainable resources and consistent support.
