BIPOC Podcast Creators is a Black and Latina-owned organization with the mission of connecting people with opportunities that will help amplify both the presence and stories of Black, Indigenous, and creators of color in podcasting. “We want to own our own narratives, so we can continue to build a legacy beyond the podcasting industry.” Co-founders Tangia Al-awaji Estrada and Maribel Quezada Smith are both experienced podcast creators and community organizers, who have long done the messy work of fighting for equity and change.
