Providing a directory of local podcast meetups and calendar of events is something we take immense pride in here at podtopod. As a podcaster at any level, there is a huge benefit to interacting with others in your community and learning new skills to help you hone your craft.
One of those communities we were really excited to include on here was the Podcast Atlanta Meetup. This is a relatively new group that typically meets once a month, alternating between meet & greets and a more formal educational session. Their membership has grown super quickly and much of that is a credit to the structure of the group and one of its main organizers, Mark Deal.
I was very excited to chat with Mark about the formation of this group, how it’s benefitted him and other members in the Atlanta area, and what others could learn about creating a local podcast community in their own hometown. I think you are going to get a lot of value from this chat with Mark about the benefits of a meetup. And if you want some help, don’t hesitate to contact Mark directly.
Also, feel free to peruse our existing directory of local podcast meetups or submit your own if we don’t have it listed in the directory.
