Episode details

Today, I chat with Elsie Escobar, a leading light in the podcasting space when it comes to diversity, women in podcasting, and raising unheard voices.

As someone who's been in the space since 2006, Elsie is the co-host and co-partner of She Podcasts, currently the community manager for podcast host Libsyn, and a Podcast Hall of Fame inductee. She brings a wealth of experience and insights to this episode, with takeaways on how we can be better podcasters and community allies.

  • the multiple sides of diversity in podcasting

  • how bad podcasting advice led to She Podcasts
