SQS021: Berry from Podcasts in Color

Spread the love

Podcasting sometimes feels like a thankless task. You’re just talking to a faceless audience for a long time until one day the “face” of your audience becomes clear. In the case of Berry from Podcasts in Color, she looked for podcasts that reflected her. And, in the process created the Podcasts in Color Directory housing hundreds of podcasts created by people of color.
