A few local podcasting enthusiasts have put together a survey to see how they can assist those who would have participated in the Philadelphia Podcast Festival, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival's founders, Nathan and Teagan Kuruna, created the Philadelphia Podcast Census 2020 to better connect the region's podcasting community and create a publicly-accessible directory.
The #phillypodcount survey was shared to the Philadelphia Podcasting Society's Facebook page on Aug. 14. About 600 people follow the page.
Local podcasters have until Sept. 4 to complete the 10-question survey, which asks participants to provide a link to their pod. The survey primarily includes questions about podcast monetization and subject matter, Nathan Kuruna told Technical.y.
We are pleased to announce The Philadelphia Podcast Census 2020! In the hopes of creating a publicly accessible directory and a stronger, more connected community, we have partnered with the good people of @IndyHall to bring you this effort.

A few Philadelphia podcasts have recently gained greater attention. Visit Philadelphia's "Love + Grit" highlights Philly residents, foods and attractions. "The Alley Cast" features the residents of historic Elfreth's Alley while "Jawn Appetit" focuses on the city's food scene.
