Summer is finally here! While that means you all might be winding down for a few weeks, it’s the complete opposite for me. Those of you who have been following my blog posts know that I joined Spotify’s Sound Up team in March to develop its ‘Behind The Mic program for early-career podcasters. When I say ‘early career,’ I mean people who have established talents in writing, audio editing, and guest booking, and who want to join the production teams of well-known shows.
I honestly love working with the Sound Up Team. We come at equity in audio production honestly, and they also understand how the world works. We know that the podcast industry — audio production in general – isn’t one that is open to all people or ideas. But we’re determined to open those doors (OK, break down the barriers) while making sure the people who walk through them feel safe and heard.
Anyway, I’m deep into planning and don’t have as much time to share my deep and meaningful thoughts as regularly. (I know, I know…) BUT, fear not! I’ll be sharing my thoughts in audio form — through my series of conversations, which drop once a month. It’s called (de)CIPHERED. Go and listen to me while you’re chilling. I promise you’ll enjoy listening to my guests as much as I did. You can listen to it anywhere you get podcasts
I’ll also continue my weekly blogs, but I’m going to turn my focus on highlighting the world of content creators (especially podcasters ) across the diaspora. There is so much good (and funny) stuff out there, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
