Google has teamed up with PRX to lead and manage the Google Podcasts creator program. The Google Podcasts creator program, funded by Google, hopes to remove barriers to podcasting, increase the diversity of voices in the industry, and to make sure content is available for all audiences.

The Google Podcasts creator program focuses on three pillars: empowering and training underrepresented voices, educating a global community with free tools, and showcasing the participants’ work as a model for others.

One of the key elements of the program will be a global podcast accelerator headed up by PRX. Our staff and members of an advisory committee will select global teams to receive seed funding, intensive training and mentorship. The program will be split into two rounds of approximately six projects each. The first round kicks off in January 2019. Applications are live until 11:59pm ET on Sunday, December 2. For more information and to apply, visit https://googlecp.prx.org.

Complementing the global accelerator, PRX will develop a series of podcasting 101 videos in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Arabic to support the training of podcast enthusiasts around the world.

Google initially announced this program in June 2018 with the launch of its podcast app for Android users.
