How It All Began


Founder and Lead Curator, Arielle Nissenblatt was stuck in traffic one day in Los Angeles and realized that podcasts were the only thing helping her through the commute. Though she loved her 3 favorite podcasts, she wanted more. She asked friends to share their favorites, and their friends to share their favorites. Quickly, the movement grew. Now, we send a weekly email with a theme and 5 podcasts on that theme -- each week curated by a different person -- to thousands around the world.

What We Do 


Earbuds Podcast Collective brings the diverse, eclectic, and ever-growing podcast universe directly to our listeners. Our weekly Listening List is a crowdsourced collection of content from a variety of programs, ranging from prominent sources to indie unknowns. 

In line with our values is the importance of personal interaction and communication. That is why Earbuds Podcast Collective also hosts storytelling events throughout the country to celebrate the power of *listening.* Learn more about upcoming events and find one near you on our Events Page
