We offer programming to help women up level their marketing, podcasting, and technology skills. This summer, we offered a free seven-week accelerator program called Ossa Academy, focusing on key components of podcast marketing such as branding, metrics, and monetization. Academy attendees were engaged with the content and are using the tips and tools we offered to change the growth trajectory of their podcast. This is extremely gratifying.
