WHAT IS IPM?
September Is International Podcast Month (IPM)! IPM is a wonderful opportunity for podcasters to cross-promote, celebrate each other, and share the love of podcasting with the world.
To celebrate, a collaboration of many diverse and inclusive podcasting folks are creating Audio Fiction Minisodes, Creator Conversations, Non-Fiction Minisodes, RPG Actual-Play One-Shots, and contributed to a month-long blog.
2018 was a smashing success!
We crossed the 10K download mark for our IPM episodes and for a first year this was incredible; We’re looking forward to what 2019 will bring!
OUR CORE PRINCIPLE
We remain committed to making and maintaining an inclusive, welcoming space for all people. To that end, racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, and other related material is unwelcome.
What has been written and created for this event belongs to the creators. IPM holds absolutely no ownership over any writings or audio creations. If at any point a creator wishes their blog piece or episode removed from the site and/or RSS we will absolutely comply. Contributions will be posted on the IPM website, the IPM RSS feed, and to social media, but creators will always be fully credited.
