I do hope someone steps up and produces an engaging podcast. This is one thing definitely missing in the Zcash ecosystem. Much of what I’ve learned about crypto over the past couple of years came from podcasts.

As a side note, even though I’ve never ran my own podcast, I would love to give it a however, my current employer would cut me loose as soon as they found out I was involved financially with any crypto. :joy::scream:


Hi @ZcashGrants, we received the first part of a grant to do such a podcast last year, called “Shielded Dialogues”: Shielded dialogues: media and advocacy for private transactions.

We’ve recorded three podcasts so far, one with Andrew Miller, one with Zooko, one with WhyRUSleeping. Each comes with a bounty for a challenge to make privacy relevant to the listener, posed by our interviewee.

We haven’t published any of those yet because we’re still deciding on a PR strategy to hit the minimum number of views in the proposal milestone.

We spoke to Natasha and David from ZCash Media, who were super helpful on this end (thanks again!) but any additional ideas and support on the PR side, or community sharing side would be super appreciated.

We feel pretty good about the content of the interviews and have a few other guests already in mind to interview; Zcash-relevant outreach is our bottleneck.

Happy to submit the podcasts we have ready privately to discuss strategy and would be grateful for any pointers, through this forum or a brief call.



We recently engaged a PR firm and might be able to help. DM me if interested.


If this is still unclaimed I’d like to throw my hat into the ring. I run a YouTube/Odysee channel/podcast called Digital Cash Network for several years now. Prior to this (and now as part of the channel) I have hosted 196 episodes of the Dash Podcast. I am a crypto user since 2013 and have been living exclusively off of crypto since 2015, and have been a consistent advocate of privacy generally and Zcash specifically for years.

I propose to host a monthly live podcast dedicated to Zcash on my channel, about 60-90 minutes in duration, live on YouTube and Odysee, which will then be syndicated across various platforms including audio podcast platforms. This will feature guests from the Zcash world and greater affiliated ecosystem and cover topical news as well as deep dives into particular subjects pertaining to Zcash.

If there’s interest, please let me know and I will submit a more official proposal. Thanks everyone!


Thank you for your interest. Yes, this is still unclaimed, so please feel free to submit your proposal directly in this thread. If you have any questions, you can DM us at @ZcashGrants.


I have officially submitted a grant proposal! Please feel free to comment here or on the dedicated thread here.


A proposal has been submitted for the Zcash Podcast RFP. When is the team making a decision? Thanks in advance for your consideration.

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 28.

Thank you, that’s great. Is it your policy to notify people who submit proposals whether or not they have been selected?

Yes, we announce our decision on the forum in each specific grant proposal thread. Here’s an example from a recent grant we approved:

Thanks! Happy holidays.

@indexstudios - I just want to clarify one thing I said above: our next meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 28, and we will discuss your proposal at that time. However, we like to give the community a chance to comment on proposals, so we may not make a decision on your grant at that meeting. The average turnaround time from submission to decision is approximately four to six weeks.

Can you please respond and post a link to your proposal so that the community is able to review it as well?

Thank you. How do I submit a link to the proposal?

Should I just upload it in my reply so the community can view it? Thanks.

Yes, please do. Thanks!

I tried posting the proposal but your spam filter removed it.

Here’s the proposal from @indexstudios:

ZCash Podcast - Proposal - Nov 21.pdf (62.0 KB)

@indexstudios, After consideration from @ZcashGrants, and sufficient time for the community to provide feedback on the forum, the committee has decided to reject your proposal. However, there may come a time when this project makes sense in the future, & ZCG wants to encourage you to check back in at some point in the future and they will keep this grant in mind going forward.
