Want to be a better Podcaster? Listen to People of Color.
Podcasts from people of color are often underrepresented in conversations around podcasting influencers or dismissed as shows created only for those populations with the same/similar background as the host or producer. My session will dispel the idea that shows produced and hosted by people of color are JUST for people of color and highlight prevalent themes that subconsciously marginalize our community in podcasting and other mediums. I’m an independent Latina podcaster from the Bronx, New York with a masters degree in consuming media in all formats (film, tv, audio, radio). The audience will learn 3 ways in which PoC are marginalized in the industry and 3 Benefits of listening to podcasts outside of their traditional lens. Content creators will have a widened perspective on how to view, listen and write about podcasters of color.
