Podcasts are a part of “outward facing content” outlined in the policy. Point of contact for podcast approvals is the Director of Digital Engagement, OPIA.

Currently, we are developing a VA Podcast Network, and we are currently looking for podcasters. To be approved for an official VA podcast you must:

  • Have an approved podcast hosting site that can connect to industry standard podcatchers (iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, etc.).
  • Agree to post a bi-weekly basis at a minimum (exceptions can be made in the case of serial podcasts).
  • Have the equipment necessary to produce a professional-level podcast.
  • Have a clear plan, format and specific niche’ that serves VA’s external messaging.
  • Podcast notes are to be blogged on VAntage Point.
  • Agree to follow the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics.
  • Follow Section 508 compliance requirements (for example, providing a transcript of the podcast).
