Pullman Yards in Atlanta once again played host to The 2024 Black Effect Podcast Festival last weekend, serving as a platform to showcase, empower, and magnify Black voices within the podcasting realm.

Marking its second consecutive year, the festival united podcast enthusiasts and leading talents for a day filled with live recordings of the network’s most renowned shows.

The festivities kicked off with an exclusive live session of Pour Minds, featuring Lex P and Drea delving into the intricacies of modern-day dating and the financial dynamics within relationships. 

Throughout the event, attendees were treated to live presentations of various podcasts, including Carefully Reckless with Jess Hilarious, Black Tech, Green Money, and Deeply Well with Devi Brown, featuring John Hope Bryant and Dr. Joy Harden-Bradford. 

T.I. also joined the festival for a special appearance on The Baller Alert Show, hosted by Ferrari Simmons, Byron Turner, and Octavia March. During the session, T.I. discussed topics such as his first big purchase post-fame and the key to maintaining a lasting and prosperous marriage.

Festival backers AT&T, Nissan, and State Farm curated engaging family-oriented activities, such as The Trap Nerds Grand Prix Showdown Gaming Tournament. 

Also, for the second consecutive year, emerging creators were granted the chance to present their podcast concepts to executives from the Black Effect Network at the Pitch Your Podcast booth.
