Simplecast BIPOC Meetup and Luncheon at Podcast Movement 2023

4 min read

Simplecast, together with the BIPOC Podcast Creators team, have hosted the BIPOC Meetup and Luncheon event at Podcast Movement for several years.The aim is to bring together this diverse community and its advocates to share experiences, best practices, new skills, and simply connect with knowledge and empathy. It is a lunch and networking event, where like-minded community members can forge new connections and renew old partnerships.

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.
