Arkansas Podcast Collaborative Created To Support Podcasters

A group of Arkansans supporting podcasting in the state is announcing the creation of the Arkansas Podcast Collaborative (APC). The nonprofit’s mission is to provide resources for those interested in launching a podcast or who have a podcast and are seeking guidance on growing its audience.

Arkansas Podcast Collaborative

The Arkansas Podcast Collaborative is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the growth and success of podcasters in Arkansas. The organization was founded in 2023 by a group of passionate podcasters and industry professionals who recognized the need for a community-driven platform that provides resources and support to local podcasters. The APC's mission is to help podcasters launch, produce, promote, and monetize by providing access to training, networking, and technology. The APC's primary goal is to foster a vibrant and diverse podcasting community in Arkansas and promote local content creation that reflects the unique culture, voices, and perspectives of the state.

What We Offer

The Arkansas Podcast Collaborative offers a variety of programs and services to support podcasters throughout the state. These include podcast trainings and workshops for beginners and advanced podcasters, community events like the annual ARKAST podcast festival in September, and resources like a directory of Arkansas podcasters and a podcast launch package for those just starting out. The nonprofit is dedicated to fostering a thriving podcasting community in Arkansas and providing resources to help podcasters grow and succeed.

The Arkansas Podcast Collaborative offers a free membership program for Arkansas-based podcasters or those interested in the podcasting industry. Members receive access to exclusive resources, networking opportunities, and discounts on workshops and events. Additionally, the Arkansas Podcast Collaborative has a monthly newsletter that provides updates on upcoming events, resources, and industry news.
