Never heard of it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone, it’s only been going for 3 years!
For those who haven’t, here’s a brief summary of what the day is all about:
International Podcast Day is dedicated to promoting Podcasts around the world through education and public engagement. In the summer of 2013, Steve Lee, founder of Modern Life Network founded Podcast Day after he’d just heard about National Senior Citizens Day on the radio. After finding out that Senior Citizens had a day of celebration, he thought to himself “why isn’t there a day of celebration for Podcasting?” and thus, Podcast Day was born! The following year, after overwhelming success, the event was rebranded to how it is known today, International Podcast Day, opening it up to wider world.
The day’s aim is to raise awareness and spread the love of Podcasts, something we’ve been doing since 2006! Yes, 2006! This June, the Internet Marketing Podcast celebrated its 10th Birthday with a special episode featuring current host Andy White and previous hosts, Kelvin Newman and Daniel Rowles as well as SiteVisibility’s very own CEO, Jason Woodford. You can listen to them celebrate 10 years of the show with top episode picks and funny stories as well as an insight into where digital marketing is heading here: http://www.sitevisibility.co.uk/blog/2016/06/15/10-year-anniversary-internet-marketing-podcast-346/
