Spotify’s Sound Up Bootcamp

Women of color have been breaking ground in podcasting well ahead of the latest boom. But there’s plenty more to be done — a recent study showed that only 22 percent of podcasts are hosted by women, and the number’s even smaller when it comes to women of color. To move towards equity for women of color in podcasting, Spotify is launching the Sound Up Bootcamp, a weeklong intensive program for aspiring female podcasters of color. Over the course of five days in New York City, ten hand-selected attendees will learn about the art of podcast creation, from initial ideation to editing, producing, and marketing from experts in the field. On the final day, attendees will have the chance to pitch their podcast ideas to a panel of experts and professionals — and the top three pitches will have the pilot process funded, up to $10,000. All expenses for the week will be paid by Spotify.
