Podcast Partners

As part of our ongoing commitment to helping diverse community voices access the airwaves, KRCL is proud to be the home of a podcast partners program. The goal is to support startup podcasts, providing a studio home as they develop and hone their work and business plan.

KRCL offers studio time and podcast mentorship for a year, after which studio time will be made available at a reduced rate of $40 an hour for another six months, $80 an hour thereafter.

Regardless of length of time in our program, studio rates apply for any podcast partner who receives outside financial support, including but not limited to underwriting, advertising, sponsorship or grants.

If you have a podcast idea, submit it to podcasts@krcl.org. Successful podcast ideas should support KRCL’s mission of positive social change and community engagement. Each podcast is the sole creation of its host and does not necessarily reflect the views of this station.

PODCAST: The Utah Foodie on 'Going Vegan' with Ian Brandt of Vertical Diner

Vertical Diner and Sage’s Cafe are two leading restaurants in Utah that promote plant-based foods on their menu, with large offerings of exclusively vegetarian and vegan dishes. Today, vegan and vegetarian menu options aren’t uncommon — but 17 years ago, in 1998, it was rare… and the thought of opening a vegetarian-only restaurant in Salt Lake City seemed impossible. It was then that Ian Brandt, owner of Vertical Diner and Sage’s Cafe, set out to popularize a non-meat diet (beyond tasteless leafy salads!) and provide better dining options for vegetarians and vegans in Salt Lake City.


PODCAST: Culture Jock Talks 'Womenpreneurs' with Liz Galloway

With a world of experience under her belt as a travel and leisure marketing/consulting expert, Liz Galloway shares what it takes to carve out a career as a "womanpreneur." #CultureJock Lance Allred talks to her about her passion for travel and the non-profits she's created to give back to local and global communities.


Culture Jock with Jess Larsen of Child Rescue

In Episode 18 of ‪#‎culturejock‬, Lance Allred talks with Jess Larsen of Child Resce Association. A business coach by day and superhero by night, Larsen leads a dual life as he fights child trafficking. In this episode Jess shares his story and how child trafficking is far more prevalent in our communities than we want to admit. Though sobering, this podcast is still very uplifting, seeing the good that we all can do, and Jess shows us how we can fight this plight, first off, by no longer calling it "underage prostitution," and instead its true name: child trafficking.
