International Podcast Day is just around the corner. Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
International Podcast Day takes place on September 30 every year, so if you haven’t planned your celebration for 2021, now is the time to get started!
This annual event presents a great opportunity for podcasters to promote their shows, connect with new audiences and engage with other podcasters and industry experts. It’s also the perfect time to get creative with your podcast and social media content.
What is International Podcast Day?
Since 2015, International Podcast Day has brought together podcasters, listeners, podcast enthusiasts and industry leaders to celebrate the power of podcasts.
In past years, the day included livestreams that brought together podcasters from nearly 100 countries and streamed hundreds of hours of content. The 2021 event will not include a live stream for the first time, but that means that individual podcasters have more opportunities than ever to make the event their own.
Use International Podcast Day as an opportunity to promote your show
International Podcast Day offers B2B podcasters everywhere a unique chance to connect with new audiences.
For a simple way to reach new people on social media, be sure to use the hashtag #InternationalPodcastDay on all content you share on social media for this day. You can also engage with other posts under the hashtag to learn about special events or connect with fellow podcasters.
If you want to celebrate International Podcast Day but aren’t sure where to start, here are a few ideas:
- Host a live, virtual podcast.
- Join a community of podcasters in your area (like our own Nashville Podcasters).
- Post on social media using the free International Podcast Day graphics.

- Shout out some of your favorite podcasts on social media and tag them.
- Conduct short interviews with past guests or listeners who can talk about why they love your show.
- Encourage listeners to rate and review your show on Apple Podcasts.
