What is PROJECT CAtapult?

Project Catapult is an innovative podcast accelerator developed by PRX, working in conjunction with NPR member stations.

Project Catapult selects stations from around the country to participate in a 20-week curriculum to develop new skills, which will include digital content development, cultivating diverse talent, audience engagement, and monetization.

Stations bear considerable risk in the current podcast environment. Even the best intentions around new talent and topics can fail if marketing, promotion, staff expectations, and sponsorship efforts are not mastered. Project Catapult addresses these challenges head-on.

PRX is grateful to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for its ongoing support of Project Catapult and our efforts to bolster podcasting at public radio stations.
