Maryland Podcast Month

PODCADE ’20: The Maryland Podcast Cavalcade has been canceled.

May 2020 is the Second Annual Maryland Podcast Month!

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 conduct, 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.

To participate in Maryland Podcast Month, email us at with your podcast name, a synopsis, and the links to your material
