Afros & Audio offers free podcasting tech workshop for Black creatives and audio professionals


Afros & Audio — the community that organizes events for and by Black podcast creatives and audio professionals — is hosting a free virtual event on Wednesday, July 15 at 8 p.m. EST that will teach creators what tools and tech they need to record, launch, and grow a podcast.

The event, called the Afros & Audio Novice Tech Talk, will feature a panel of speakers presenting their experiences in the world of podcasting and sharing how they’ve used technology to create audio. The event will be interactive, as audience members will be encouraged to participate and ask questions. The event is part of Afros & Audio’s Podcast Creative Kickback virtual summer event series, which will include additional events in August and September.

Speakers at the Novice Tech Talk will include:

“Afros & Audio’s mission is to become a mainstay in the lives and work of Black podcast creatives and audio professionals,” said Talib Jasir, the founder. “As a creative community, our mission is to increase Black podcasts in the marketplace and build our own tables within the industry by connecting with brands, such as Acast, to offer programming that supports creatives as they launch and work to sustain their podcast.”

The Podcast Creative Kickback series is sponsored by Acast, the podcast hosting, distribution, and monetization platform. To RSVP for the event for free, register here.

Afros & Audio was established in 2018. In addition to the virtual summer series, Afros & Audio also hosts the annual Afros & Audio Podcast Festival in Brooklyn, NY. To learn more, visit the website at
