Calling all Hall of Fame and PM17 speaker submissions!


Greetings PM Family,

This week we are excited to be discussing the 2017 Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame nominations, and the PM17 Speaker Submissions deadline next week.

Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame Nominations

The honor of being inducted into the Academy Of Podcasters Hall Of Fame has quickly become one of the biggest honors a podcaster can receive. It shows that they went above and beyond the norm for an extended period of time, and have contributed to the podcast industry as a whole.

Many inductees were present at the inception of podcasting, while others helped podcasting grow to what it is today.

The foundational requirements for being considered for induction into the Academy Of Podcasters Hall Of Fame are the following:

  1. Involvement in podcasting for at least 10 years, either as a podcaster or an active member of the podcast industry
  2. Promoted the art of podcasting over those 10 years
  3. Podcasting is better off because of their contributions and involvement
  4. Thought of highly by their podcasting peers

Being nominated for induction into the Academy Of Podcasters Hall Of Fame is the first step. All nominees go through the voting process where existing Hall Of Famers, and members of the Academy of Podcasters, will vote.

The top six nominees will have the honor of joining the elite group of members in the Academy of Podcasters Hall Of Fame.

You are invited to nominate yourself, or other podcasters using the nomination form below:
