New organization connects Asian-American Podcasters around the world

A new group aims to offer support to Asian Americans in podcasting. The Asian-American Podcasters organization was founded by Lee Uehara as a place for anyone in the field to connect with their peers. Membership is open to creatives, producers, hosts, and editors at any stage of podcasting.

“It’s exciting to be able to carve out a space in the podcasting landscape for those who identify as Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders,” Uehara said. “With this podcasting explosion, we want to be able to come together and offer support and resources to Asian-Americans – even if they’re currently living outside of the United States.”

“Our members represent all levels of podcasting: from aspiring show-runners who are planning to launch – to those with many years of experience at critically-acclaimed shows,” co-founder Andrew Wang said. “I’m excited to build a hub where Asian-American podcasters can support one another, share and collaborate to amplify their voices and podcasts.”
