Elsie Escobar on Leading From the Front for Women and Diversity in Podcasting

Pod Chat

Elsie Escobar is a leading light in the podcasting space when it comes to diversity, women in podcasting, and raising unheard voices.As someone who's been in the space since 2006, Elsie is currently the community manager for podcast host Libsyn, the co-founder of She Podcasts, and a Podcast Hall of Fame inductee. She brings a wealth of experience and insights to this episode, with takeaways on how we can be better podcasters and community allies.Yoga as an Introduction to PodcastingElsie shares how her very first podcast was as a teacher of yoga, and how that wasn't as strange as it might sound (teaching yoga via an audio format as opposed to a visual medium). It's through this podcast that her career at Libsyn began.From Life Changes to A Podcast Career with LibsynNot long after this, Elsie was chatting with Rob Walch of Libsyn, and mentioned she was going through some big life changes, and as things would have it, this tied in perfectly with something Rob was looking for with Libsyn. The rest is history.Leading From the FrontIt wasn't long after Elsie started at Libsyn that she wanted to have an official podcast from the team, to help podcasters with their questions about the medium. Despite being the new person, she was driven to create the show, and pitched it to Rob, and from there The Feed was born.The Multiple Sides of Diversity in PodcastingElsie shares where she sees advances have been made in podcasting when it comes to diversity, and where we still struggle, as individuals and the bigger medium, at promoting and lifting more diverse voices up. For Elsie, this really needs to start at the board and decision-makers level.How Bad Podcasting Advice Led to She PodcastsAs a regular attendee of various podcast shows, Elsie soon realized that a lot of the advice given at these events was pretty generic, and wouldn't help with the goals she had. Along with Jessica Kupferman, she co-founded She Podcasts, where women could find a private, supportive space that shared the type of advice needed to grow, and flourish.The Power of Being Undeniable as a Woman in PodcastingThe theme for this year's She Podcasts Live event is "undeniable", and this is something that Elsie is very passionate about for all women in podcasting. It goes beyond the goal for the event itself, and looks to make sure every woman can say "I won't be denied".Connect with Elsie:She PodcastsShe Podcasts LiveElsie on TwitterThe FeedContact me: danny@dannybrown.meProducts I use for Pod ChatNote: these contain affiliate links, so I may get a small percentage of any product you buy/use when using my link.My equipment:Electro-Voice RE320Motu M2 Audio InterfaceSony MDR-7506 Studio Monitor HeadphonesPodcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

Building Community & Trust Online with Jessica Kupferman & Elsie Escobar

Savvy Social Podcast

Daunted by starting your first podcast? Trust me, it’s much easier than when I entered the scene. The world of podcasting used to be super bro-ey and technical. So-called “gurus” made you feel like you had to build an entire studio in your basement and buy special mixers just to get your message out.  All of that changed with She Podcasts, the now 21,000-member strong online community and live event supporting podcasters from all walks of life on their journey.  Meet my dear friends and the founders — Jessica Kupferman & Elsie Escobar — in this week’s episode. In this episode of the podcast, we talk about:  Elsie and Jessica's entrepreneurial journey from Facebook group to 21,000-member community and live event One of the biggest factors behind their Facebook group's 60% leap in growth since 2018 Jessica and Elsie's secret to building iron-clad trust with their Facebook group and fans The magnetic power of "doing the right thing" Factors to consider before monetizing your thriving online community What you can learn from them about maintaining a healthy business partnership Making people feel seen and heard vs taking your podcast to the "next level" Finding connection with fellow podcasters with completely different lifestyles, interests, and areas of expertise Where the women behind She Podcasts see social media going in the next couple years The pressure to constantly "be on" with social media and how Elsie protects her peace …and more!      This Episode Was Made Possible By: Social Media Rockstar Framework Free Course The Social Media Rockstar Framework is your chance to pull back the curtain and get insights on how to build a social media strategy that works for you, learn how to create (and implement) a simple and effective content plan, convert followers into buyers, and much more.

Someone invited her on a podcast and instantly she was hooked. She wanted to be a guest on more, but when she took a look at business shows, she found that they were a lot of “young, white dudes interviewing other young, white dudes.” Exasperated, she started her first podcast and instantly gravitated to other women who were also podcasting then.  After attending a conference, she started a Facebook group called “Women Who Podcast” and added the other amazing women podcasters she spent time with, including Elsie Escobar. Little did she know that Elsie was a podcasting veteran who knew TONS of women who wanted to join the group, and she had been thinking about starting a women's podcasting group.  To make a long story short, Elsie had some amazing ideas, Jess was great at helping them come to life. Together they are dedicated to helping women overcome whatever obstacles stand in their way in order to be able to express themselves, specifically through the medium of podcasting.  Website: https://www.shepodcasts.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/shepodcasts/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/shepodcasts Go to the show notes for all the resources mentioned in this episode: https://onlinedrea.com/194

MetaPod

“Seeing how it all started and seeing where I am now, one of the things that’s so different than before is that now it’s fancy.”If you had an iPod in 2006 and synced podcasts from iTunes, you might have seen Elsie’s Yoga Class. The class was one of the first female-led yoga podcasts available. Remember, this was a time when you could browse most of the podcasts that existed fairly quickly.“I came into the scene, recording my yoga classes because I wanted to record something — I wanted to have a show,” recalls Elsie Escobar, creator of Elsie’s Yoga Class. “I didn’t know how to make it work. I didn’t know how to do it, so I thought, you know what, I’m just gonna start doing something.
