How to submit your BFE podcast

The procedure of submitting a podcast to the BFE follows in three steps:

  1. Carefully read the BFE Podcast Guidelines.
  2. Write your podcast script, including all references, and send it via email to

  3. If the BFE Podcast Team accepts your script (approx. 1-2 months for revision), you can get to work on your podcast! Please send the completed audio recording to

    - your audio file can be sent either as an email attachment, or via file transfer (e.g. WeTransfer) if the file size exceeds email attachment limits.

NOTE: WAV files are the preferred format for the audio output of BFE podcast episodes, but MP3s are also acceptable.

Podcast Topic 2020/2021: Story of a Song

Songs develop and change over time. Songs accompany us through our lives. Songs can be personal gifts; they travel; they touch us; they activate our memories; they start revolutions. In short: Songs have the potential to change the world.

We encourage you to tell us your story of a song, whether that’s based on personal experience or part of your ethnomusicological research. Do take us on an exciting, emotional and adventurous musical journey. Let us follow the story of your song.
