Best Podcasts for Diverse Audiences

Podcasts are exploding in popularity these days! There are so many that it can be hard to find the best ones.

To help you with that I’ve creating a series of short ebooks:

  • Best Podcasts: Children & Teens
  • Best Podcasts: Feminism & LGBTQ
  • Best Podcasts: People with Disabilities
  • Best Podcasts: Racial Diversity
  • Best Podcasts: The Digital Divide
  • Best Podcasts: Technology & Society
  • Best Podcasts: Discovery Tools

$2.99 each, or get the complete bundle edition for $14.99 ($9.99 on Amazon).

They will be available on Amazon, Apple’s iBookstore, Google Play Books, and other ebook sellers (EPUB & MOBI).

Increasing Diversity of Podcasts

If you want to go beyond the famous podcasts that everyone knows about, get these books! Podcasts aren’t mainly by white, male, technology geeks anymore, but by many independent hosts and producers from diverse backgrounds.

Edison Research, a group that has been tracking demographics of podcast listeners for over a decade says, “…In the early days of the medium, podcasting was disproportionally a medium for white males, ages 25-44. … but today, the content universe for podcasts has exploded, and the diversity of programming available rivals any other form of audio.”
