AIR quotes, and new speakers announced for PM17

The NBA Playoffs are in full stride, and they always promise a lot of “air”. Whether it’s Lebron taking to the “air “for a slam dunk, an “air” ball missed shot by the San Antonio Spurs or the hot “air” trash talk from Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors.

We promised you some fresh air in this edition of the Podcast Movement newsletter… and true to our word: we’re excited to tell you about a different kind of AIR that is relevant to the podcast industry. This week’s newsletter we will discuss AIR (The Association of Independents in Radio), a special partnership, and announce a few of the members of AIR that are speaking this summer in Anaheim!

AIR is a vibrant international network of 1,200 makers powering public media and podcasting. The Boston-based organization identifies, cultivates and deploys storymakers who create innovative work and find resources in digital, broadcasting, and podcasting — challenging and inspiring other media makers to join in at
