Happy Tuesday, podcasters!
It’s been a historical and polarizing week in the US, however we think today’s announcement from the Podcast Movement team is something that everyone can get behind!
It was Common Sense to have this speaker headline
Podcast Movement 2017
One of the most popular and most downloaded podcasts of all time is a show that does not have a large catalogue of episodes. In fact, oftentimes months go by between new episodes, yet it always manages to stay at the top of the charts. Not many podcasts can get away with this, but then again, calling Hardcore History “just a podcast” would be doing a disservice to the works of art that each episode truly is.
We’ve attempted for three years to bring this podcaster to the PM stage with no success. However, now we are excited and honored to finally announce that Dan Carlin will be a headline speaker in Anaheim this August at Podcast Movement 2017!
Dan Carlin is an American political commentator and podcaster. Once a full-time radio host, Carlin eventually took his show to the Internet, and he now hosts two wildly popular independent podcasts: Hardcore History and Common Sense.
Part storyteller, part analyst, Carlin has mastered the art of looking at subjects from multiple angles and dissecting and thinking about them in original ways. He isn’t afraid to go deep or to inject historical context into modern debates. Whether it’s history or current events he’s discussing, his passion is contagious, his approach refreshing and his ideas tickle your brain in all the right places.
It is rare for Dan to take the stage at live events, and we’re honored to be welcoming Dan to the PM stage on Wednesday, August 23 in Anaheim.
Register for PM17 to be a part of this historic event at the lowest possible price!
SUPER EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT IS GOING ON NOW
Last year we were excited to host dozens of commercial radio hosts and executives, and let them see what the podcast movement was all about. This year, we’re excited to formally welcome them with a special full day of radio-centric podcast sessions at the Broadcasters Meet Podcasters track, presented in conjunction with Jacobs Media on Thursday, August 24.
Jacobs Media President Fred Jacobs explains, “We loved Podcast Movement in Chicago last year and were struck by the breadth and energy of the space. The goal is to get radio broadcasters involved, given the industry’s ability to create compelling audio content, promote it, and generate revenue around it. It just makes sense to bring these two worlds together to help broadcasters – and podcasters – elevate their game.”
We have a lot more exciting announcements coming soon! In the meantime, definitely consider checking out Podcast Movement Sessions (hosted by talented PM family member Joel Sharpton) and PM Weekly, which is the brand new audio companion to this newsletter (hosted by Dan Franks and Jared Easley).
Until next time,
