Podcasts Can’t Survive Without Diversity w/ Tangia Al-awaji Estrada

Podcasts Can’t Survive Without Diversity w/ Tangia Al-awaji Estrada

“When we don’t have that level of diversity in our industry, it doesn’t bode well because you’re very quickly going to be irrelevant. As those younger people and those new minds come into things, if it doesn’t engage them, they just won’t deal with it. 

There won’t be like some kind of fight by the next generation to save podcasting. They just won’t engage with it.”

Tangia Al-awaji Estrada is the co-founder of BIPOC Podcast Creators, and today she sat down with Heather Osgood to talk about diversity and podcasting. 

(BIPOC = Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)

Heather and Tangia talk about: 

  • What is BIPOC Podcast Creators?
  • The current demographics of podcast creators.
  • Gen Z & their demand for diversity and inclusion. 
  • Discoverability issues for minority podcasters. 


Gen Z is entering adulthood, and they value diversity. If you’re not willing to adapt, your show might be left behind.
