Welcome to season four of Podcast Movement Sessions! This time around we’re focusing on PM19’s Society, Culture, and Advocacy track and for our season premier we’re taking a look more specifically at how creators have turned to the podcasting medium as a means of advocating for societal change.
We’ll speak with PM co-founders Jared Easley and Dan Franks about podcasting’s low barrier of entry and how that has created a space for underrepresented voices to get their voices out about issues they care deeply for 2:40; we’ll shine our PMS spotlight on a full circle moment from PM19 through a conversation with Ear Hustle co-creators Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods–Ear Hustle could be the finest example of a podcast that grew into a force for change 8:04; finally, we’ll hear from Leigh Pfeffer (host of History is Gay), the team behind Gay Future (Christina Friel and Connor Wright), Accused host/reporter Amber Hunt, and Tenderfoot TV’s Christina Dana about how each of them consider themselves advocates through their respective podcasts 22:16.
