Inaugural DC Podfest Set for Nov 6-8

by | Sep 1, 2015

From Nov. 6-8, the inaugural DC Podfest will bring together local podcasters for a weekend of workshops, networking and an independent podcast awards ceremony, reports Technical.ly/DC.  The new event is meant to promote a growing medium that is still contending with many skeptics, continued the report, which also stated, in part:

“It’s not in its infancy anymore, but it’s still in its adolescence,” said DC Podfest co-founder Jennifer “Jelly” Crawford. “And it’s got a lot to prove.”

Crawford started her own podcast — The Jellyvision Show — when she ran The Soundry, a Vienna-based coworking space for artists and performers that closed in 2011.

About a year ago, Crawford realized that there wasn’t much by way of organized team spirit among D.C.-area podcasters. “It’s very hard to find or search for podcasters geographically,” she said.

So she created the DC Podcaster Community group on Facebook and organized mixers and critique events once a month.

The DC Podfest is looking for speakers, as well as volunteers, sponsors and panelists.

According to local podcaster Charlie Birney, co-founder of the Gaithersburg-based Podcast Village, the event is just what is needed as the podcasting community comes together during the renewed interest in the value of podcasts.
