Celebrating International Podcast Day
It's exciting to be able to celebrate "International Podcast Day"! My podcast, Two Kids and A Career, is something I'm so proud of. I'm glad I didn't give up on it for so many reasons, but the number one reason is because I know each episode has the ability to help at least one person.
The podcast community truly wants to help one another. We support one another in our efforts and today is one of those days where we recognize that.
International Podcast Day™ is September 30th and is an international celebration of the power of podcasts! The celebration is a great opportunity to connect with fellow podcasters, podcast listeners, podcast enthusiasts, and leaders in the podcasting industry. Help spread the word by telling your friends, sharing the celebration on your podcasts and social media feeds, and using #InternationalPodcastDay. But first, we must all “Start The Conversation” and share the power of podcasts!
Just as podcasts and podcasting has evolved over the years, International Podcast Day has done the same. In 2014, National Podcast Day was celebrated with 6 hours of broadcasting. After quickly realizing the power of podcasts internationally, we rebranded into what we are today – International Podcast Day. Between 2015 and 2019, we broadcasted hundreds of hours around the globe inviting podcasters and industry leaders from 70 different countries to share their podcast journeys, personal stories, and expertise. It is important to recognize the history but move forward celebrating the power of podcasts.
If you're not a podcaster, but love podcasts, here are some ways you can support International Podcast Day:
*Use #InternationalPodcastDay on social media
*Explain to someone what a podcast is and get them hooked
*Share your favorite podcast with someone (coworker, friend, teammate)
*Send feedback to your favorite podcasters and tell them thank you
*Provide a rating and review in Apple Podcasts or other platforms
*Subscribe to a new show and talk about it using #InternationalPodcastDay
Of course I would love for you to share my podcast with someone AND provide a rating and review AND subscribe to my podcast, but it's just as important to do all those things with other podcasts you may love.
Lastly, if your business is in need of a podcast, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to help you deliver your message to the public!
