This collaborative project seeks to surface crucial information and insights to support investment in innovative business models within the podcasting industry, which is showing tremendous potential.

Through this project our objective is to develop a baseline understanding of the trends in African podcasting from which to frame further programming; and to use reliable data to map the potential of and make a strong case for further investment in African podcasting.

Is this Mic On? – Published in December 2021

In December 2021, Africa Podfest and Baraza Media Lab came together to launch a report on the state of African podcasting.
For the first edition of the Podcasting in Africa report, we directly engaged with pioneer African podcasters, enablers & decision-makers in the African & global podcast and media ecosystem to uncover new findings, garner feedback from the stakeholders and build support for the research initiative.

“Is This Mic On?” explores how podcasting is taking root in Africa, going into what are some of the broadcasters motivations, their needs, the relationship between podcasters and their audiences, as well as look into the sustainability in African podcasting.
