PRESS AND MEDIA
IPM is a wonderful opportunity for podcasters to cross-promote, celebrate each other, and share the love of podcasting with the world. For IPM, creators are making special episodes to release during this upcoming September on the IPM RSS feed. We've brought together Non-Fiction, Audio Fiction, and RPG Actual-Play creators to put together amazing content for us to deliver directly to your ears this September.
With a focus on marginalized creators, we're building communities together and extending the love to sharing listeners and boosting each other's voices. For 2019, IPM features a collaboration of many diverse and inclusive podcasting folks on Audio Fiction Minisodes, Creator Conversation Episodes, Non-Fiction Episodes, RPG Actual-Play One-Shots, and a month-long blog. The Non-Fiction and Audio Fiction episodes will be special minisodes made by their creators and casts, while the RPG Actual-Play One-Shots are made up of a variety of creators across the podcasting medium who have gotten together just for their one episode (though whether or not they decide to continue their campaigns is up to them!).
