Podcasting has been exploding in popularity worldwide for quite a while now. In Central and Eastern Europe, podcasts are playing catch-up, allowing for media in this region – where press freedom is under threat – to experiment with the format and expand its audience reach.
The Association of European Journalists in Bulgaria, AEJ-Bulgaria, is moving ahead with its plan to hold Sofia’s first podcast festival this month. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the format would be different. What was meant to be a one-day, in-person event will now be a five-day-long online celebration of podcasting and storytelling.
Thе festival, which includes talks, discussions, and workshops, will take place from November 18 to 22 and give you a chance to meet some of your favorite international podcast creators.
Each evening, the audience will have a chance to attend webinars and panel discussions with prominent international podcast hosts and producers. Over the weekend, participants can join workshops and gain hands-on tips and tricks about how to create their own podcast or, if they already have one, get better at it.
Let’s experience the power of podcasting together.
Festival attendance is free (except for the two workshops) but participants need to register in advance.
