Podcast Movement 2018 location announcement, plenty of PM17 event info and more!

Happy 4th of July!

We are celebrating this Independence Day edition of the newsletter with some firework announcements! We are announcing the location for Podcast Movement 2018, as well as sharing some popular events that are included with your PM17 registration in Anaheim!



Podcast Movement 2018 comes to Philadelphia

We, the Podcast Movement organizers… have been asked for some time to bring the industry leading event to the east coast. Well your requests have not fallen on deaf ears.

We figured what better way to celebrate Independence Day, than to announce that Podcast Movement 2018 is coming to the city where the Declaration of Independence was signed: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

Philly is known as the city of brotherly love, and in 2018 it will also be known as the host city for lovers of the podcast industry and podcast creation, when Podcast Movement 2018 comes to town.

Let freedom and podcasts ring next summer in Philadelphia!
