Organizers of the Black Podcasting Awards are gearing up for next week’s annual celebration of creation and content for the Black experience in the world of podcasting. The BPA ceremony will be virtual when it is held Thursday, Sept. 30 at 8pm (ET). It will be hosted by podcasters Allie Mitchell and Quinn Conyers, and the show will include live performances and a Zoom afterparty.

"This event celebrates these pioneering voices and gives them the recognition they deserve.”
