Pod Aware is a week-long event first organized in 2011 by paraka to celebrate podfic as an art form and spread awareness about some of the meta issues in the fandom. The second Pod Aware was November 12-18, 2012. The third Pod Aware was held November 10-14, 2014.

Each day during the event a post on the main LiveJournal and Dreamwidth communities announces the theme of the day and provides a streaming podcast on the day's theme. Pod Aware participants create something or post something--anything--to their own journals and include the day's theme somewhere in their post. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to sign up.
