WERK IT: A Women’s Podcast Festival, Los Angeles (2017)

It’s official, I’m excited to be photographing Werk It: A Women’s Podcast Festival this October 3-5, 2017 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, Downtown Los Angeles!!

The only all-woman podcasting festival on the planet, Werk It presents workshops, demonstrations, mentoring sessions and NSFW conversations about working in audio and digital media. Plus: Networking opportunities, cocktail parties, and live podcast tapings at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles!

Werk It launched in 2015 with a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to expand women’s voices in podcasting. At the time, their research showed that only 20% of all podcasts in the iTunes top 100 chart were hosted by women. Their mission is to get to 50% or more. By giving women opportunities to learn new skills and make professional contacts, Werk It is one way we will get there.

Check out this amazing schedule and list of presenters. Gah, what an inspiring group of women, all focused to help other women grow. I love it.

Werk It is a production of WNYC Studios, the beautiful people behind Radiolab, Freakonomics Radio, Death, Sex & Money, 2 Dope Queens, Note to Self, Snap Judgment, Sooo Many White Guys, Here’s the Thing, The New Yorker Radio Hour, On the Media, Only Human and more.
