Session 344: Starting a Career in Podcasting

Welcome back to another episode of the Therapy for Black Girls January Jumpstart mini-series. All month long we will host conversations with talented Black women leaders across creative and professional mediums to assist you in putting the “P” in prioritizing your personal growth. If you’ve been holding back on doing you, THIS is your sign to jump head first into the possibilities of a New Year. 

Have you ever wondered how the Therapy For Black Girls Podcast got started, and how episodes are produced? Or maybe thought about creating a podcast of your own or getting involved on the production side of things. You’re in luck, because today we’ll be taking you behind the curtain and getting into the nitty-gritty of what it takes to create a podcast. Joining me for today’s conversation are Therapy For Black Girls team members Fredia Lucas, our senior producer, Ellice Ellis, our podcast producer & social media creative, and Cindy Okereke, our former producer and current director of marketing. During our conversation, we discuss finding an audience for your podcast, explore some basic tools and supplies you should invest in to produce a high-quality podcast, and explain some ways you can monetize your podcast.

About the Podcast

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
