About

Hey, lady podcaster! We know podcasting can be a lonely journey. 5 years ago, we started the Facebook group and podcast called She Podcasts. We hoped that together, as women, we could help propel each other and our messages forward and take away some of that “podcasting in a bubble” feeling.

For 5 years, many of you have asked for an in-person event - time to learn from one another, get to know one another, collaborate and support each other. 

Finally, that time has come.

This fall, we’d like  She Podcasts LIVE to come to Atlanta Georgia. 

We dream of an event that is community-led. An event that caters specifically to what women want to learn. An event that is a part retreat and part conference and part slumber party. An event designed to make us feel beautiful, and brilliant, and included, and loved.

Target Attendee: She Podcasts is a network of over 12K podcasters that identify as women and may or may not be career podcasters, or "corpcasters." 

We want to host this first event to provide a space for all of us side-hustling podcasters navigating our work in a male-dominated industry.

 Whether you wanna make this your career or you simply wanna press record and talk because you love podcasting. You belong.

Any gender identity and/or expression is valued and this event is targeting those that don’t fit the dominant avatar of podcast hosts, aka men. We will provide a safe space for non-binary podcasters, cisgender women as well as trans women to thrive in a safe space.

All political views, cultural experiences, abilities, racial and ethnic identities, are valued and encouraged as leaders in our community.  Sliding scale payment plans will be available and we are trying to accommodate all needs including financial needs, roommate listing, carpooling, food allergies, etc.

We need your help to make this experience a reality. Your support will allow us to prove that the women’s podcasting conference is a viable idea, one that deserves exploring and funding. Your contributions will provide social proof, as well as allow us to secure a venue, room blocks, and other needs to make sure an event of this magnitude is given life.

We are planning to have 3-4 separate tracks for women in all different parts of the podcasting journey. 

Start. Refine. Grow. Accomplish. 

Each track will include sessions that speak to the skills for each phase as well as the mindset and energy that needs to be present in order for that phase to be conquered. 

Stay tuned for more updates!

Risks and challenges

In order to move forward with the planning of this event, we need to reach our goals so that we can book the venue and secure the dates and other materials we need.
