The purpose of the True Crime Podcast Festival is to give you (the listeners) the opportunity to meet and interact with your favorite podcasters. Who knows — you may even find some new favorites!
The festival features live recordings of podcast episodes, including many cross-over collaborations you won’t hear anywhere else.
You can also enjoy a lively panel discussion, where podcasters pull back the curtain for a unique view into the creation of a show. Past topics have included how podcasters select their cases, the ethics of amateur investigations, and the importance of diversity and inclusivity.
But the main draw of the festival is the large Podcast Gallery.
Imagine: a hall of tables representing the best in the true crime podcast genre! The podcasters get out from behind the microphones — and from behind their tables — to mix and mingle with podcast listeners. Conversations, selfies, and memories all happen on the floor of our Podcast Gallery.
We are excited to announce that beginning in 2022 we are opening up registration to Paranormal Podcasts. We often see the two worlds intersect and want to provide an inclusive space for both genres. This is great news for our attendees, they now have the opportunity to meet some of their favorite paranormal podcasters!
