The Podcast Factory Org (ASBL/VZW)
“The Podcast Factory Org” (ASBL/VZW):
Aims at supporting passionate & forward-thinking communities on air, through podcasts.
- It brings a status and a legal framework to different Podcast projects that were up to now produced as a hobby by de Facto associations:
- “HR Voices and Visions”, who is now merged with “Hrmeetup”
- “Project-Daybreak” (presenting artists and their passion) now replaced by “What’s your Story” and managed by David Van Den Broeck
- “Midoricast” who aims at sharing success stories around environment, conservation, climate change & ecology. This projet is in confirmed collaboration with transforma bxl.
- It promotes this kind of media (and others) in order to be positioned as a « guarantee of democracy » : the content will always be produced by the public and for ‘public at large’ without political, commercial and lobbyist influences. so, it promote other Podcast projects by providing:
- free training
- coaching and follow-up
- a community of help and experience sharing, events between Podcasts producers or about different themes that are tackled.
- an online community & podcast hosting platform (“Podcast Owners (proposed by The Podcast Factory)“) is available on FaceBook.
in the idea that others can produce their own content.
- It acts!
“after the speech and media, we have to provide solutions and concrete actions to the subjects that were tackled. It can be:
- a mobile app that references local and organic producers
- the fact of providing a workforce to other associations or organizations
- the organization of waste collection in the streets with the help of volunteers
It is impossible to catalogue the list because we want us to be agile and context adaptive but the idea will always be to bring an added value to our society, humanity and environment. One of our biggest projects will be to reconnect to the tradition of oral transmission between generations by way of podcasts and life stories which will be edited.”
