We guided the producers of Out There podcast in an evaluation of their content, production and planning, and submissions process to assess how well they were meeting their goal of being more inclusive of a multiplicity of perspectives. “When I started Out There, I wanted the show to be inclusive. It’s a podcast that uses stories about the outdoors to explore life’s big questions, but I did not want it to appeal only to hardcore outdoorsy types who look like they came out of a Patagonia catalogue,” host Willow Belden said. “But despite the best of intentions, we’ve become a show that’s largely about middle class, straight white people.” In the resulting episode, she and her business partner, Alex Eggerking, set a new course for the podcast. “Our goal is to be very up front about our failure, and share our hopes for improving in the new year.”
