Are you curious about podcasts or a current podcast listener? Interested in creating your own podcast? Already podcasting and want to connect with other area podcasters? If you are anywhere on that spectrum, you are welcome to join The Gem City Podcast for their upcoming event Dayton Podfest at the Brightside Music & Event Center on Saturday March 30, 2019. This is a celebration of local podcasts and the ever growing world of podcasting.
What is a podcast? A podcast is essentially talk radio, but on demand. You can listen for free on websites and podcast platforms like iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, among others. Gem City Podcast is the first podcast dedicated to Dayton Ohio specifically. The GCP crew has been highlighting area stories since 2013 and over 700 episodes, and was recently voted “Best Dayton Podcast.”
Beyond creating 3 podcasts weekly, the GCP crew is also enthusiastic about creating a sense of community among area podcasters. They’ve started a monthly meet up on the second Tuesday of the month, and organized Dayton Podfests, where they host a workshop for newbies, a networking hour, and a host of live Dayton podcasts.
Even if you can’t attend the event, purchasing a pre-sale ticket for $10 or $20 is a great way to make a donation to the Gem City Podcast crew and the great work they’ve been doing for the Dayton community! To do so, click here.
