Critical Conversations: Identity in Podcasting

Podcasting is a booming business: audience has grown 40% over the past two years and revenue is nearly doubling year over year. Additionally, its intimacy and accessibility have given rise to a wide range of voices. Still, as of mid-2017, a majority of the top 100 podcasts were hosted by straight, white men. But things don’t have to stay that way. Join a diverse panel of podcast hosts from Gimlet Media, WNYC Studios, and more whose shows are changing the conversation one story at a time.
