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.
