Welcome back, podcast fans! 

The Tiny Texas Podcast Festival is returning for its second year from on April 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.at the University of Texas’ Belo Center for New Media. The event is free, and all audio devotees are welcome, whether you have your own podcast or just subscribe to a few. Coffee and snacks will be served alongside podcasting lessons and recommendations from Texas audio experts.

Dallas Morning News Arts and Culture Editor Christopher Wynn will launch the event with a discussion of recent innovations in the world of podcasting, and podcasters DalYah Jones and Jacquelyn Carter will kick off the day’s sequence of live podcast recordings with a taping of Two and Fro, their podcast about black Southern identity. And that’s only the first two hours of the event!

The rest of the festival will feature two more live podcast recordings from Austin’s local NPR station, KUT 90.5, and three additional panels about podcasting, with topics including how to attract an audience for your podcast and how to structure your podcast. The festival will end with a panel from our own audio production house, The Drag. Audio Directors Tinu Thomas and Haley Butler will lead a discussion about the role of true crime in the public culture and in audio storytelling. 

Registration for the Tiny Texas Podcast Festival is currently open, and you and your friends can register using this link. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email us at utinnovate@gmail.com.
