Over the course of six weeks, GRIOT Circle members with stories to tell worked with BRIC staff to learn the technical and narrative skills necessary to make their own podcasts. Join us as we listen to their finished podcasts, and meet our burgeoning audio storytellers in person.
GRIOT Circle is a community-based organization that addresses the needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people of color. Since 1996, GRIOT Circle has provided a welcoming space, culturally sensitive services, and member-centered programming that affirm the lives of LGBTQ elders of color.
This podcasting workshop was developed by BRIC's Community Media and Community Engagement programs, in partnership with our partners at GRIOT Circle.

The BRIC Media Center gives Brooklynites the tools and know-how to professionally create and cablecast their own television programs on the New York Emmy-WINNING Brooklyn Free Speech, and produces non-commercial television programs that reflect the borough's diversity of thought and culture. We provide a voice for Brooklynites just like you to air their hopes, dreams, and aspirations to the world.
The BRIC Media Center provides all Brooklynites with access to television studio facilities, equipment, and free or low-cost media training. We are located in the heart of the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District at BRIC House, 647 Fulton Street.
