    Our Story

    Podcast Movement began in 2014, when four podcasters and entrepreneurs had an idea. With a Kickstarter campaign and a positive attitude, they set out to create a vibrant event “for podcasters, by podcasters.” In the years since, PM has grown with the community's support to become the ultimate annual destination for diverse speakers, education, networking, and groovy parties. But what, you ask, are we up to the rest of the year?

    Welcome to the front page of podcasting, designed for you and the community we love. PM has become the hub for podcasting news, resources, and thought leadership. You'll find fresh material every weekday, including guest articles from creators and critics across the industry. We're so excited to share this project that we made it even easier to stay informed: Introducing PodMov Daily.

    PodMov Daily is our all-new publication, an email newsletter in the spirit of that first goal. Each morning in your inbox, you'll find breaking news, curated topics, and community updates, served in bite-sized format. Expect a variety of content relevant to podcasters of all stripes, plus fun recurring segments like a quote of the day. Earn sweet rewards for referrals, and keep an eye out for exclusive perks.

    Podcasters are busy people, and our community is complex. PodMov Daily keeps you in the loop without slowing you down. Move with us!
