What is Boundless Audio (BA) all about?
Here are BA, we’re about uplifting and promoting the voices of women (especially women of color) and those in marginalized communities. We support culturally conscious shows that are strong allies and advocates for creating spaces for voices that aren’t traditionally heard in podcast spaces.
Do I have to be a woman, woman of color, or a member of a marginalized community to join BA?
No. While most of our shows are women/women-of-color-led, you don’t have to be to join the network. What’s more important is you use your show platform and everyday life to serve as an ally and advocate for those who may not have the privileges to do so.
How is BA different from other podcast networks?
BA is more community than a traditional podcast network. We support our shows by sharing resources, offering training, and holding space for our show hosts to ask questions, share wins, and collaborate for growth. We do not currently offer podcast production or management of network shows.
Do I maintain creative control of my show?
Yes, hosts maintain full creative control of their shows. BA will not interfere with the development of, creation, and production of the show including assistance with branding efforts, theme songs, logos, etc, outside of educational offerings that BA may provide and/or feedback.
Do I still own my show? What about if I decide to leave BA?
Of course, you do! Your show is your intellectual property! If you decide to leave BA, you own all the aspects related to the development, creation, and production of your show.
