AUC’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication (JRMC) is hosting the event. 





Attendees will need to show proof that they are fully vaccinated to enter campus.




The half day conference, from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m., aims to bring together podcast creators, listeners as well as anyone interested in creating audio content. Kim Fox, PodFest Cairo’s founder and organizer, says “the podcasting community in Cairo is growing and we want to encourage podcasters to continue to create compelling audio content.”





Sessions will be held in English (with the possibility of simultaneous translation) and will address topics about podcasting that are of interest to a wide audience such as how to start a podcast, obtaining good quality audio for your podcast and the future of podcasting in Egypt.
