Los Angeles

The WNYC Podcast Accelerator

  • Friday - 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Los Angeles Room
  • #ONA15wnyc

WNYC marks the culmination of its summer search for the next great podcast. The finalists behind five terrific podcasts have spent weeks refining their ideas in a virtual accelerator program, and will present their pitches to a set of all-star judges who will select one grand-prize winner. The winner will have the chance to produce a pilot podcast with WNYC. While the judges are conferring, we'll host a conversation on all things podcasts with some of the most creative minds behind this unique digital audio medium. Special thanks to MailChimp for its generous support of the WNYC podcast accelerator.
