Project Description

 

 

More Banana Podcasts is a network of podcasts all produced and hosted by women and non-binary creators.

 

Our shows are bold, edgy, and brazen. We create podcasts sourced directly from the voices of talented women who are tired of being criticized for "saying like too much."  In podcasting and digital media, there's a huge gap in women-hosted podcasts certainly, but the difference is larger in production. Less than 2% of all audio engineers are women!

 

For us, putting women behind the mic is just as important as hearing them in front of it. 

 

There are 73M podcast listeners, 65% of which only started listening to podcasts in the last year. The fastest growing portion of podcast listeners are women. More Banana is making shows for a growing audience of listeners who want to find and follow shows that represent them. 

Our Shows

More Banana is making podcasts with women behind the helm, because it makes the product different, unique, but not like you'd expect. Our version of "women's content" often involves Star Wars, awkward sex stories, comedy, and politics.

 

We've grown more than 130K downloads in the last 6 months, increasing our listenership between 10-20% month over month.

 

We've proved that edgy and silly women make great podcasts. 

 

Right now, we're raising funds to help expand our reach. We are making room for more podcasts, all while making sure we can provide the resources and space for women with talent and big ideas to learn the tech behind what they create. 

 

The funds we raise will go towards growing the audience of our existing shows, expanding our production capabilities, and securing a space for podcasts made by women that are unfiltered and uninterrupted. 

 

 

Press and Media Coverage

 

“Fun show with a worthwhile raison d’être.”
-The A.V. Club

 

“With the 2020 presidential race is already heating up —
and fast — we couldn’t ask for a more perfectly timed pod.”  
-Brit + Co

 

“destroys the taboo of sex and puts a stop to misogyny.”
-Women’s Health

 

“...this weekly podcast is like a social studies
class with a lot of jokes.”
-The A.V. Club

 

“A comedian and a political strategist walked
into a podcast, and the result is Let's Get Civical.”
  -Inside Radio

 

Our Creators

We allow talented women to bring us their ideas without doubting themselves for not having the tech savvy to make a podcast. We offer audio editing, a full studio, and education to our creators, because we want them to be involved in the creative process of their show.

 

The More Banana creators make podcasts that make them laugh, that make them cry, that get them riled up. 

 

Thank you for supporting this community of bad a$$ women! And tune in to our pods!
