Podcasting is blowing up audio storytelling right now—creating a brave new media landscape. This creates an incredible opportunity to make a different kind of media outlet--one that is far less beholden to institutionalized racism, sexism and ignorance than ever before. In this panel, we'll talk about the problems of having singular voices in previous iterations of public radio and media, and how we are working to change that landscape. We'll also talk about the ability to make one's own podcast, and how podcasting can return a sense of ownership to POC in media.
