Millions listen to podcasts but not enough are hosted and produced by women. How can we fix this?

An exclusive Be Your Change workshop will train fifteen women to harness the power of podcasts for social good. Attendees will learn how to create and distribute their own podcast at this four day retreat in Arizona. DemLabs is offering two free scholarships.

Podcasting basics
Podcasting is a unique medium to build relationships with your audience, supporters and donors. Podcasts are booming with 86 million listeners in 2019.

Convenient: Listen to podcasts when and where you choose.
Useful: They are easy to search for content and archive.
Easy to make: Podcasts can be recorded and edited with just a laptop.

Current: New podcasts are automatically downloaded once you’ve subscribe to a podcast feed.

A wonderful woman hosted podcast
Karen Jagoda hosts the  DigitalPoliticsPodcast.com show which is now in its 13th year. This weekly podcast is a non-partisan window into the convergence of politics and technology. Karen interviews political and digital experts to explain how they use new and traditional methods to win campaigns and advocate for causes.

It’s available from Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify and other sources. Listen to her interview with DemLabs on “Leveling the Playing Field for Down Ballot Candidates


Powerful vested interests control TV stations. Corporate advertisers monopolize the media. It’s hard for small groups to get heard so people can make informed decisions. Podcasts can help.
