How to get involved

If you think your podcast would be a good fit for the network (see below), please apply by filling out this form. We'll get back to you as soon as possible, but keep in mind that vetting podcasts takes some time. (UPDATE: Applications to the network are currently closed. We will reopen the process when space becomes available.)

What makes a podcast a good fit for the network? We're looking for the following qualities: 

  • You come out regularly and predictably;

  • You’re willing and able to deliver the ads and send us the proof;

  • You’re willing and able to report your download numbers;

  • You’re willing and able to promote the network and the sponsors on your other channels;

  • You have the legal right to use your music, and you stay on the right side of the law with the rest of your content;

  • You don’t have any other sponsorship deals (if you have existing deals, let’s talk);

  • You seem like a good home for the sponsors;

  • At least one of your hosts is in Alberta.

Each network member is asked to do two things:

  • Acknowledge the network and presenting partner in every episode. We require members to say in their podcasts and on their other channels that they are a member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.

  • Make space for and deliver two ad spots in every episode. The network's community manager assigns the ads and provides guidance on what to say.

Podcasters get paid $25 per episode, provided they deliver the sponsor messages and show proof. Payments are made quarterly.

Member podcasts are promoted by the network on all of its channels, both online and in real life. They are cross-promoted by fellow network members.
