Team PM17 trusts that you & your family enjoyed Memorial Day Weekend (if you are in the US). Podcast Movement greatly appreciates the sacrifices made by all members of the Armed Forces and our Allies.
The Freedom to Podcast is certainly something that every PM17 family member can celebrate! We also want to celebrate the Academy of Podcasters Awards finalists, this week’s PM17 speakers announcement and a compelling Focus Group Session at this year’s event!
Announcing your 2017 Academy of Podcasters Awards Finalists
The Academy of Podcasters was founded in 2015 to honor some of the best podcasters in the world, each and every year. We've spent the last few months compiling data, along with votes from members of the Academy, and are honored to announce this year's finalists! Check out the all new AofP website for the full list.
Award-Worthy Speaker Announcements
While this week's newsletter was lead off with our 2017 award nominated podcasters, this week we're also honored to announce some amazing speakers being added to the PM17 lineup that are award-worthy in their own right!

Get Focused with this first of its kind session at Podcast Movement
Amplifi Media and Nuvoodoo Media will join forces at Podcast Movement to present something special. Steve Goldstein (Founder/CEO Amplifi Media) and Carolyn Gilbert are putting together a focus group that will tackle how real listeners really consume podcasts.
How Consumers Really Listen to Podcasts
A first of its kind video study. Podcast listeners in their own words. Real podcast listeners talk about how they discover, choose and listen.
– Apps they use
– Where and how they listen
– How many they listen to
– Emerging listening habits
– Exclusive podcast user insights on length, turn-offs and ads, and a lot more!
Keep your eye out for this eye-opening session taking place this August.
Whether you are starting your podcast soon, or are an existing member of the Podcast Hall of Fame… we appreciate your passion and devotion to podcasting. Podcast Movement is committed to helping you share your voice in the most impactful way possible, while remaining wise with your creativity and resources. We are excited to hang out with you in Anaheim!
