With my podcast and radio show - Winnipeg Music Project, I’ve been invited to speak on a panel or two at the upcoming Manitoba Podcast Festival. I’m nervous since I feel like I would be attending the panels rather than being on one but I’m so flattered and feel I might have something interesting to say. I have some more information down below so keep on reading!
Sept. 30 is International Podcast Day, so Winnipeg's podcast community is getting together for panel discussions, workshops and more!
The inaugural Manitoba Podcast Festival features local podcast hosts, producers, traditional radio personalities, and other members of the broadcast media (DIY or otherwise). They're joining forces to help up-and-coming podcasters develop their skills and their unique voice, and to highlight some of the excellent work in the medium happening just below the mainstream in this province.
Panel discussions will cover the ins and outs of starting your own show, the benefits and drawbacks of podcasting vs. traditional radio, and the role of women in developing the growing local community, among other topics.
Audience members are encouraged to participate in Q&A sessions after each panel and to network with established broadcasters in the community.
Tickets will be the low, low price of $5! You can purchase them here.
