Happy Tuesday PM Family,
We’re excited to have two big PM17 announcements, with the first being the revealing of our next Podcast Movement keynote speakers.
Rabia, Colin and Susan from Undisclosed Podcast
Once best known as the person who brought the Adnan Syed case to PM alumni Sarah Koenig for the hit podcast Serial, Rabia Chaudry has since become a bona fide podcast powerhouse. Along with cohosts Colin Miller and Susan Simpson, the Undisclosed Podcast investigates wrongful convictions, and the U.S. criminal justice system, by taking a closer look at the perpetration of a crime, its investigation, the trial, and ultimate verdict…and finding new evidence that never made it to court.
The podcast made headlines in 2016 when Simpson’s work for the show uncovered evidence that ultimately got the conviction of Adnan Syed, the subject of Undisclosed’s season one, thrown out.
Now in their third season, these three have an amazing story of going from no podcast experience but tons of passion, to one of the most popular shows in the world with millions of downloads. We’re excited to welcome the team from Undisclosed to the stage for the first time this summer in Anaheim!
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers (times two)
Last year we were excited to debut a new featured stage at Podcast Movement that we called the Q&A Stage. During each breakout session, we featured a different expert in a variety of podcasting topics, and invited you to bring any and all questions. Some of the experts were:
- Elsie Escobar & Jessica Kupfermann on building online communities
- Dave Jackson on content creation
- Michelle Talbert on podcast marketing
- Darrell Darnell on audio editing
- and many more!
This year, we’re even more excited, as we will not only have the return of the Q&A stage, but also the interactive Solutions Stage. This stage will feature interactive demos and sessions that invite you to be a part of the action.
Think of these as mini-workshops throughout the three days. Attend one, or attend them all! But whatever you do, keep an eye out for Q&A Stage and Solutions Stage expert announcements as we get closer to PM17!
Register to be a part of all the big keynote sessions, 20+ Q&A and Solutions sessions, and everything else taking place this August!
What topics should we cover?
As mentioned above, we’ve got two stages with amazingly interactive content taking place all week at PM17. But we need your help! LET US KNOW WHAT TOPICS YOU WANT TO SEE COVERED IN THESE SESSIONS!
Please send an e-mail to [email protected], or just reply to this one, giving us your thoughts!
Next week, we will be discussing all the awesome things we’ve got planned for you starting Tuesday, August 22, the day before Podcast Movement. Plan on getting to Anaheim early to take part in all the action!
Until Next Week,
