What is the Alliance?
The Alliance of Maryland Podcasts is a group of podcasts and podcasters who have come together to promote the growth, development, and promotion of podcasts based in the state of Maryland.
Our goal is to bring podcasts of all stripes together to cross-collaborate and cross-promote in order to create more opportunities for podcasts to get new listeners. This effort is non-partisan and non-ideological and hopes to bring together all sorts of locally produced content, including podcasts about news, politics, sports, life, culture, food, wrestling, and whatever else is out there.
If it’s produced in Maryland or has primarily a Maryland Audience, we want them to be a part of this effort.
The Alliance of Maryland Podcasts is the successor to Maryland Podcast Month. May is Maryland Podcast Month, and was created in 2018 as a month to promote the Maryland Podcasts. The Alliance will continue to promote Maryland Podcast Month as the focal point of our yearly efforts.
What The Alliance Does?
Some of the activities The Alliance will undertake include:
Promoting Maryland Podcast Month;
Organizing and promoting the Maryland Podcast Awards;
Promotion Maryland based content.
Who is part of the Alliance
Rich Bennett is the Chairman of the Alliance of Maryland Podcasts. He is the producer and host of Conversations with Rich Bennett, Lifetime Oath, and Harford Business Beat. Inspired by the creation of National Weather Podcast Month, Brian Griffiths (Founder and original Chairman) created Maryland Podcast Month in 2018 in order to promote local, Maryland-based shows.
