About Podfest Midwest

An Annual Festival for Podcast Enthusiasts


Now in its third year, Podfest Midwest, previously known as the Columbus Podcast Festival, is a non-profit, performing arts festival in Columbus, Ohio. Supported entirely through tickets sales, application fees, and our community partners, the festival works to foster the podcast medium in Central Ohio by showcasing both nationally known and locally grown podcast to our audiences.

Each year, featured podcasts are selected for the festival through a competitive application system which screens for content, professionalism, and novelty. Throughout the screening, festival organizers look for podcasts that bring something new to our audiences, with an eye to creating a balanced festival that has something for everyone.
As the festival grows, we hope to add educational seminars and professional networking events that will bring new information and skill sets to the experienced caster and beginner alike. Podcasting has proven to be a resilient and effective means of creating content and we hope that Columbus will be a center of the art for many years to come.
