"International Podcast Day is a day long celebration of the power of podcasting with over 24 hours of live broadcasting and connecting podcasters, listeners, and audio enthusiasts worldwide," explains Dave Lee, co-founder of International Podcast Day and a podcaster in his own right. "There’s a particular intimacy with podcasts and people connect with that. We feel like we get to know the host(s) and their struggles and successes."
As was the case the last two years, there will be a special International Podcast Day broadcast that will last over 24hours.
"Last year we represented podcasters from 11 countries and covered topics such as automation tools, building listener communities, creating local meetups, and revenue generation," adds Lee, whose podcast, "Waves of Tech" is heard on the Modern Life Podcast Network. "The event had 45,000 tweets from the community using #PodcastDay."
Lee also wanted to add that podcasting truly an international art and a platform that continues to grow.
"Podcasting is international. You could be podcasting literally from your closet and influencing a worldwide audience."
Again this year, International Podcast Day will award a "Gratitude Award" to honor those that set out to "do good' and make a difference with their podcast.
