As part of our series on podcaster communities we spoke to 11 different individuals who help run active communities both online and offline in different parts of the world. Our aim was to both understand the motivations and challenges of organizers better, as well as highlight the great work these organizers are doing, share their journeys and celebrate their accomplishments. In these interviews, we deepened our learnings about some incredible communities and their knowledge which we’re excited to share.
One of the keys to successful podcasting is finding a support network of other like-minded individuals who are on the same journey. Communities of podcasters provide a great way of filling this need through knowledge exchange and offering inspiration and moral support to one another. That’s why many podcaster communities were started and continue to flourish both online and offline around the world.
Several articles have previously been written about podcaster communities but never before has an in-depth study been carried out, providing a more comprehensive overview of the overall landscape. That’s why at Spreaker we recently decided to survey community organizers, gathering information on podcaster communities that are currently active. In this post, we will look at some of the main conclusions of our study.
