International Podcast Month

International Podcast Month
IPM is a wonderful opportunity for podcasters to cross-promote, celebrate each other, and share the love of podcasting with the world. For IPM, creators are making special episodes to release during this upcoming September on the IPM RSS feed. We’ve brought together Non-Fiction (NF), Audio Fiction/Audio Drama (AF or AD), and RPG Actual-Play (AP) creators to put together amazing content for us to deliver directly to your ears this September. With a focus on marginalized creators, we’re building communities together and extending the love to sharing listeners and boosting each other’s voices. As in past years, IPM features a collaboration of many diverse and inclusive podcasting folks on Audio Fiction Minisodes, Creator Conversation Episodes, Non-Fiction Episodes, RPG Actual-Play One-Shots, and a month-long blog. The Non-Fiction and Audio Fiction episodes are special minisodes made by their creators and casts, while the RPG Actual-Play One-Shots are made up of a variety of creators across the podcasting m
