We tell our own stories of
now and then.

The Community Podcast Studio at The Bottom is a community recording studio working to create accessible and affordable entry points for particularly African American audio makers, and to activate an approachable DIY audio community in Knoxville.


Even the most talented storytellers and content producers can find it difficult to develop a podcast if certain factors are not mastered.​

Our 2022 Podcast Cohort was made possible in part through funding received from TN Arts Commission.

The Community Podcast Studio will support audio makers in the following ways:

Recording: Production resources can be hard to find and expensive but are important for quality sounding audio. We run a professional recording studio and prioritize affordability for everyone.

Training: Everything from editing, interviewing, sound design and  marketing... We understand that a lot goes into making quality audio work. Everyone might not be good at everything but we do have local experts and we want to draw on their expertise to offer hands on training for makers of all levels.

Community: We are fostering a gathering place for podcasters, radio reporters, oral historians, sound artists, musicians, and more.
