Technology has created all kinds of opportunities for new voices to find an audience, and the world of podcasting is a perfect example. What used to require an expensive radio studio and technical staff—plus dozens of permits—can now be done by anyone with a laptop, a mic, and a passion. In that spirit, we’re celebrating the voices at the forefront of this vibrant medium at this year’s South by Southwest with the Dropbox Podcast Studio.
For two days during SXSW Interactive, March 14 and 15, we’re hosting a series of events dedicated to the art of podcasting. We’ll kick things off with a workshop featuring Snap Judgment‘s Glynn Washington, where you can learn all about storytelling. Next up will be a panel discussion and meetup with some of the people behind story-driven podcasting network Radiotopia.
And over the two days, we’ll host live recordings of a diverse mix of podcasts: Radio Ambulante; Denzel Washington Is the Best Actor of All Time Period; American Desis; #GoodMuslimBadMuslim; Homoground; and Song Exploder, with their special guest CHVRCHES.
If you’ll be in Austin for South by Southwest, we’d love to have you join us. Register here for the Dropbox Podcast Studio—no badge needed to attend. You can find the full schedule below. We can’t wait to see you there.
