“International Podcast Day is dedicated to promoting podcasting worldwide through education and public engagement.”
There is National IPA Day, National Waffle Fries Day, National Pancake Day, and National pretty-much-anything-you-want Day. In the summer of 2013, Steve Lee (founder of Modern Life Network) heard a radio announcement for National Senior Citizens’ Day. Thinking that was pretty cool, it begged the question of why wasn’t there a day of celebration for podcasting. That’s when Steve said to himself “Let’s create a Podcast Day!” So the adventure began and a collective team of podcasters put their heads together to establish methods for podcasters and podcast listeners to raise awareness for this great entertainment and education medium.
After the overwhelming success of Podcast Day 2014 the event was rebranded to International Podcast to ensure the world is involved.
I will be talking about how I got into listening to, and creating, podcasts, and how that evolved ThatSportsGamer, and lead to me becoming the Baseball Community Manager for OOTPDevelopments.
