Ears open, hosts? The Philadelphia Podcasting Society is conducting an online census to understand how it can better help podcasters during the pandemic.
Cofounder Nathan Kuruna said the #phillypodcount was designed to inform the society on how it can help local podcasters who usually benefit from the Philadelphia Podcast Festival, its annual event supporting the myriad of local pods.
“Given the way the festival has grown in the last few years, and the limitations we have for this year, we’re using this survey to get a sense of who is actively making podcasts in the region,” he said.
“Folks seem most interested in more ways to network and learn from each other and in the potential for cross promotion,” Kuruna said. “Exactly how we do that is going to depend on how many people sign up, and what those podcasters in the region want to see.”
At 10 questions asking about things such as subject matter and monetization, Kuruna said that the census was designed to be easy for podcasters to participate. Fill it out by Friday, Sept. 4.
As for the festival, usually held in the summer: “At this point it seems unlikely that the PPF as it has existed in previous years can safely happen this year,” Kuruna said. “We are still in discussions regarding the possibility of an online event(s) to replace it before the end of 2020.”
Hi everyone. Usually this is around the time when we’d be announcing the lineup for Philly Podfest. However, as we all know, things are weird this year. (cont’d)
