The Black Podcasters Association Narrowcast - Upcoming BPA Workshops & Live Events
Our purpose is to unite black podcast creatives and professionals committed to redefining the podcast landscape and establish a foundation that fully supports our creative voices respects our brands, and aligns with our core values, as we share engaging content with the world.
It's Officially Summer!
We hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend and took some much-needed time to decompress, relax, rejuvenate, and refocus.
June is just around the corner which means we are at the ½ way mark of 2022. For many of us, it is time to reflect on our progress for the year, while for others, it’s break time.
Whether you choose to continue to work on your podcast or take a break, make sure you remember to take some “Me” time out to enjoy the sun, explore the outdoors, have some fun, and most importantly, be safe.
And if you are working through the summer, and need to take a break, don’t beat yourself up… take it, your fans will understand.
This Week: Liability in Podcasting: Record Responsibly Pt. 2 Workshop
After an unexpected postponement, our Legal Liability Workshop Series presented by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press continues on June 1st, 2022 @ 7 pm.
This free event is to help support and educate podcasters through the legal maze, in regard to content creation and the consequences of defamation and libel.
We previously explored a media law primer and discussed the consequences of libel and defamation. Part 2 will continue to explore this area that can have detrimental effects on a podcaster and their podcast.
A short Q & A will also be available.
You don’t want to miss this event. Space is still available.

A Pride Month Celebration! Daring To Be Free: Black Podcasters Association Pride Month Panel
The BPA is honored to be able to host this wonderful panel that celebrates our LGBQT+ community members.
Black LGBTQ+ representation in the podcasting space has provided an opportunity for voices, often diminished if not outright muted, to tell their own stories. LGBTQ+ podcasters have offered the Black community an honest view into a diversity of stories with far-reaching impacts on our present and our history.
Join BPA podcasters of the LGBTQ+ community for a discussion about their work, their impact, and why everyone should be listening.
This is a live event and will happen on June 6th @ 7 PM eastern via our YouTube Channel.
Come check out Jay Ray, Anna Deshawn, and Reggee Socorro-Garner to talk about what it means to be Black and LGBQT+ in podcasting.

The Spotlight: Summertime Break
The Spotlight series will be on vacation until September. We apologize if this leaves a void in your heart, as many of you have been very supportive of the show, and can’t live without your weekly dose of Spotlight interviews. 🤣🤣🤣
As many of you already know, our Spotlight series’ goal is to help highlight Black podcast creatives and podcast professionals and allow people to learn more about the people behind their favorite podcasts. Discoverability is a problem we want to help black podcasters and podcast professionals solve.
Corey will be working hard over the summer to revamp the show and create a more robust experience for both our guests as well as our audiences. If you have suggestions or ideas that you would like to share with us to improve the show, please feel free to email us at:
