Creating a Podcast Discovery Platform

Afeni is podcast network and directory only featuring shows created by women.



The Challenge

Launch a podcast discovery tool that allows users to find podcasts created by women.


A digital space and community for podcast listeners, hosts, and producers.


Working Around Podcast Discovery Algorithms

As a podcast lover, I spend an obnoxious amount of time looking for new shows to binge on. After working my way through the most popular podcasts I noticed it became increasingly difficult to find shows created by women. In response, I created Afeni as a short-term solution for a larger problem.

In addition to helping listeners find shows created by women, I also wanted to empower more women to share their voices through our digital community. We created a sharing community by regularly featuring new shows on our site, social media accounts and newsletter. This allowed us to help new podcasts quickly reach a larger audience.
