What is We Are Podcast?

We Are Podcast is a conference that focuses primarily on small business owners who want to create or sustain a podcast. We focus on the commercial intent, the return on investment for the business owner — and we marry those things with each person’s unique and creative qualities. 

You don’t have to be a starving artist or sell out; there is a middle path. We believe that a big part of making your “art” is making it sustainable. We Are Podcast is designed to show you how.

We Are Podcast is about community. We started the conference in 2015, with the goal of giving podcasters and entrepreneurs, a place to congregate and share learnings once a year.

We Are Podcast exists to help people leverage the power of audio marketing and craft a podcast or enable an existing one to flourish. It’s a conference that never loses sight of the practical, deconstructing what the pros are doing and providing concrete strategies that you can replicate.

We’ve taken everything we learned the prior three years and put it all into WAP 2018, and it’s going to be our best event yet!

“Audio is one of the deepest and most engaging forms of content. You can consume a podcast while jogging or cooking. It’s not in competition with something else for people’s increasingly scarce attention.”

Who is We Are Podcast For?

We Are Podcast isn’t for everyone. It’s for a select group of people who want to solve meaningful problems. It’s for people whose frustration with the status quo outweighs their fear of the unknown. It’s for people who want to put their soul into the game. It’s for people who want to learn (or get better at) how to commercialize their creativity. It’s for disruptors, outliers and paradigm shifters. It’s for people who genuinely care.

2018 Theme:

There are roughly 159.3 million blog posts written per day and 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. The theme for 2018 is all about how to stand out in this flood of content. 

You can’t create just another podcast, you’ve gotta...

Amplify your message to reach newer and wider audiences. With newly improved content strategies and the right marketing tools. In 2018, our speakers will be focusing on the exact strategies they've used to get their results.

Influence with your voice & your message. Let your voice be heard! It's time for your ideas to be heard and in 2018 we are focusing on how much easier it is to do that with your audio.

Impact the lives of your customers & followers. Also, impact the lives that might not have a platform for their voices to be heard. Delivering meaningful content, your audience will keep coming back for more!

Just wanted to say thank you to Ronsley Vaz for lighting the fire under my ass last year at We Are Podcast to finally start a Podcast. 

As of today, it's official... I am now a podcaster. 

Insert fist pump!!

Every Ticket Sold Helps to Combat Sex Trafficking

Amplify Book Amplify the conversation on child trafficking

Perhaps the most significant achievement of We Are Podcast is the funding it’s generated for the great work done by Free to Shine in Southeast Asia.

Since 2015, a percentage of WAP proceeds have gone to a variety of initiatives to prevent & fight sex trafficking. This is done through education, community building and increasing access to necessities.

Our greatest success is the number of girls that have been saved and the number of communities we’ve helped strengthen.
