Podcasts are helping global audiences understand and take action when it comes to building a stronger democracy. This panel brings together a diverse collection of women podcasters to discuss how they’ve been able to reach across cultures to build understanding on some of the biggest issues facing our society. Even if politics is the last thing you want to talk about on your podcast, learn how you can tell humanizing stories around nuanced, and often history-heavy topics. Participants will walk away with the following tools: – Asking the right questions during an interview – Weaving fact-based reporting with narrative-based storytelling – Taking a complex topic and breaking it down into digestible pieces – How to get guests and adjacent partner to share your show.
