Podcast host Georgie-Ann Getton-Mckoy answered the call and began to assemble a team. On March 3rd, a mix of Black podcasters and content creators from across the country came together and that night, the Black Podcasting Awards was born.
BPA is the first podcasting awards for the Black community. For us. By us. It was created to uplift the voices that may not get the awards or accolades they should; while navigating the minimally-diverse world of podcast culture. We’re here to change allllll that. Independent? You found your tribe. Networked? That’s cool too. Curious and want to support? We got you. This is for all of us!
Black Podcasting Awards is a celebration of the ownership and creation of content for the Black experience in the world of podcasting. Through a curated list of categories, we aim to elevate Black voices within the audio creation field. Voices that may not receive the recognition they deserve, in a marketplace that often overlooks the candor of Black digital expressionists. We are here to bridge the gap, amplify our own and celebrate those who have paved the way, as well as, provide a foundation for the up and coming voices in the Black podcasting network.
