Podcasting has become a significant medium in the Philippines since the pandemic, providing both entertainment and information to Filipinos. Recognizing the potential and passion of local podcast creators, Globe has taken the initiative to support the community.

Globe’s participation in the “Hear For It” Podcast Festival is an extension of the company’s G Creator Series, which was launched in September to help customers realize their potential as creators through technology.

“Globe’s collaboration with ANIMA Podcasts for the “Hear For It” podcast festival exemplifies our unwavering commitment to nurturing creator culture through our innovative G Creator Series. Storytelling is at the heart of designing and creating. Through initiatives like these, Globe continues to uplift the lives of Filipinos, encouraging them to embrace and celebrate their unique voices,” said Pia Gonzalez-Colby, Chief Marketing Officer at Globe.

At the festival, held on October 20 at the Glorietta 2 Palm Drive Activity Center in Makati City, participants were given access to the Globe Creator Pod via the GlobeOne app. By donating two Globe Rewards points to the Globe-led Hapag Movement, they were able to use the pod for 10 minutes, record their podcast, and upload it to their file.

The Hapag Movement is a Globe-led effort to combat involuntary hunger through supplemental feeding and sustainable livelihood support.
