Gina Murphy-DarlingMrs. Green’s World

From about age five, Gina’s mom called her a “troublemaker” but always advised her that if she figured out how to do “it” right, it would serve her well in this world. Her mom was right. Translation? Meet the Disruptor for Good! She really likes to stir things up and get people thinking AND acting. One of her favorite past times is making people laugh and because she was clearly born with multiple sets of tear ducts, crying makes the list too. Gina cries proudly and frequently – mostly tears of joy. A few things that immediately turn the tears of joy faucet on are her team accomplishing a goal they set; letters from ten-year-old girls sharing that, because of Mrs. Green’s World, they will never use straws again; traveling deep into the Amazon rainforest; her clients sharing the difference Mrs. Green’s World has made in their lives and businesses; being a part of the lives of young people and when her family is all together. Tears of sorrow? Things like mass shootings, 500 children dying of starvation every day due to climate change, the devastation of our oceans and our rainforests and the rate of extinction for our four-legged friends. Her advice if you are thinking about writing a book? As a published author, Mrs. Green says: just do it! Be sure you have the fire in your belly, the time to tell your story and then really commit to it. The Queen of Green warns everyone that she stops for birds, all wildlife and to snap pictures of the numerous ways plastic pollution is impacting the health of our planet. Gina is a dreamer at heart. But she doesn’t just dream – she makes things happen. She has spent most of her adult life working to improve the lives of at-risk children and families, and now our at-risk planet. She is madly and passionately in love with this great planet or ours and is tireless in her efforts to preserve it. Her big dream? Raise the consciousness, of every human being on this planet, about the reality of our climate and the health of our planet. Then, educate, inspire and engage them to be the change they wish to see in the world.

Daniel TuggleReady Set Show Podcast

Hello, my name is Daniel Tuggle, (DT what I am called and go by on our podcast FYI) I am 36 years old and I am currently living in East Tennessee where I was born and raised. I have 3 beautiful girls ages are 2, 12, and 14, I also have a son who is 9. I have a beautiful fiancee who likes my beautiful children I love more than anything! They make me strive to be my best everyday and work hard so that they are all well taken care of now and in the future, without them by my side, I don’t know what I would do. I started our podcast called, “Ready Set Show Podcast” March of 2018. How I got started dates back to when I was in my early 20’s I used to go to my cousin who past away a few years ago, unfortunately, fathers house to hang out and I would just tell crazy stories of things that have happened in my life. My cousins father (Kellen who I shout out the start of each episode) always loved the stories and laughed, told me that I needed to be on radio everytime he would see me after that. I was playing drums in different bands at the time so just kind of kept it in the back of my mind. About 2-3 years ago I started listening to podcasts until one day it just hit me, I decided I want to start my own podcast. So luckily, income tax time was upon us and I was able to get the laptop I am currently still using, and got a Blue Snowball mic that I was using until a few weeks ago. From there I had a buddy of mine I started with and it didn’t work out. I then did it by myself and though I was enjoying it every episode it just felt like something was missing. I was working at a factory here in my hometown and Lette was working there and we had been talking about doing a podcast for a while and it just kind of hit me to start doing the podcast with Lette. Drama aka “Drama B” was there helping me and supporting the show from the start from making our logo, an awesome video for the show, and made our intro also. She has helped us so much we made her our manager and with her business, in online marketing (www.socialpoint24.com def check her out she has really good and affordable offers) and social media, she has helped us so much. Together with us 3, are not just a great team, but we are friends, family even!! I love this show and our segments. We do comedy, gaming, music, paranormal, vaping, and more! Anything we want to talk about we talk about it and we have so much fun doing it! We just want to learn as much as we can to help improve our show and entertain our listeners. We started out posting our episodes on Soundcloud but now we have moved over to Podbean which we LOVE and so glad we made the move to their platform. Well, that’s about it and we would love if you come to listen to the show, and if you like it follow and share it with your friends and family!! Love the podcasting community we just want to do our part to make it grow and be better. Thank you and special thanks to Podcast Movement for letting us join this great community for podcasters and welcoming us we can’t thank you all enough!!

Rory McIlvennyThe Jack Klassen Show

Boarderline obsessive, Rory Mc exercises his talents as a producer by placing a microscope on the Jack Klassen Show and reflecting that magnified image on social media and the web in general. The Jack Klassen Show was at one time a thriving and established FM radio show but hard times fell on the show and it was reduced to dead-air. Rory heard past episodes of the show via Youtube, and other places. He took notice of a special quality and talent found in the show, and Jack, that he felt was being left by the wayside. So, Rory contacted the comedy talkshow host, who at the time, was sitting in a metaphorical dirty bathrobe, smoking cigarette butts from a metaphorical ashtray and collecting a metaphorical talkshow welfare dole. A pep talk wasn’t enough to bring Jack out of his radio depression funk. Rory took it upon himself to paint every nook and cranny of the interweb with Jack’s radio show and name. He spread the show to Spreaker, to Stitcher, to Itunes, to IHeartRadio… the list goes on, Jack felt the power once again.. he took off the bathrobe and stepped up to the mic, this time in a Podcast capacity (he may be still wearing the bathrobe now that I think about it). Rory divided his efforts between the continued promotion of past shows and producing brand new ones. As the show gains popularity, Rory feels great satisfaction. He continues to see great potential in the shows future.

Eren MartinDroematic Show Podcast

Eren ‘Droematic’ Martin is from a small town in North Carolina called Oak City. He has since worked his way up the corporate ladder, and has served the corporate industry with high quality firms such as Suddenlink Communications, HCL America, Wells Fargo, and IBM. Mr. Martin also has developed strong community relationships by assisting Community Shelters Inc. and Community Action Inc, both which provides resources and opportunities for individuals, families and communities to overcome poverty. This has inspired Eren to start his own non profit , The Eren Martin Foundation, which he has recently dissolved and is restructuring it. (IF YOU NEED TO VERIFY before printing this in your article) Ref https://www.sosnc.gov SosId: 1192930

After leaving the corporate world in 2014, he could no longer resist the entrepreneurial spirit that was pulling at him consistently to venture out and start his own businesses. Since, he has become a social media guru, bringing some of the most viral videos to the internet. (IF YOU NEED TO VERIFY) (https://facebook.com/droematic) 44,000 followers. (I also have analytics to verify)

He has self-taught himself how to code and launched his first mobile app on Google Play store last year. That has branched into a full blown software startup called ErenLogic (https://www.erenlogic.com). Eren is currently partnering with Holotouch, Inc, and others to create prototypes and A.I software for commercial businesses.

It doesn’t stop there, as he has also been busy with creating a new adult animated comedy web series called 3 Real Records (https://www.3realrecords.com), that he soon plans to launch on Youtube.

Since he has so many things going on, he felt the best way to promote it, was to start a podcast. After about 2 months of learning the ins and outs of what podcasting was and how it works, he was ready to start his own. He put up an Instagram post asking if anyone was interested in being a co-host with him. To much of his surprise, most people in his hometown area and abroad, did not even know what a podcast was. Luckily, one of his long-time business partners and close friend, Jonathan Waters asked if he could do it. Eren then asked a child hood friend, which he refers to a lot on the show as Ty-Ty, to be a part of the show as well. Since she was a native New Yorker, and a hip-hop enthusiast, he felt it was an easy choice to bring her aboard.

After reaching iTunes top 5 in the music category of podcasts a few weeks ago, inspired Eren to take the craft of podcasting even more seriously. With an even more renewed focus on podcasting, he has already started working on a second show that he created, but this time, he’ll be working behind the scenes, which will be coming out in a few weeks.

Desarie AndersonProfit And Beauty: A Show For Hair Salon Professionals

Desarie Anderson is originally from London, England. She currently lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, David. She always jokes that she has had the distinct pleasure of using both the left and right side of her brain. She owned and operated a hair salon for over 19 years (Right side), and now she owns a small Tax and Accounting practice (Left side). So you can get your hair cut & colored and get your taxes done all in one visit.

Desarie graduated from Georgia State University with a BA in Accounting. She is a Georgia CPA, and an IRS Enrolled Agent. She is also a certified QuickBooks online Pro advisor and an online course creator. In addition to providing small businesses and independent contractors with bookkeeping and accounting
services, she is passionate about helping start-ups, and small businesses properly plan their business set up and their on-going activities, so they avoid potential IRS issues. She believes that it is easier to do things right in the beginning than to try to correct issues that could have been avoided with a little early planning and sound advice.

As a former employee of the Department of revenue, she has seen firsthand the tangled web small businesses and independent contractors weave for themselves. Lack of proper planning leaves small businesses that are already financially strapped in serious IRS debt. Between the increase in tax owed
from errors that could have been avoided and penalties & interests, some small businesses are forced to shut their doors. It is my job to make sure this does not happen to you.

During the few hours of the day Desarie is not working, she enjoys working out and watching Netflix.

Sheila WysockiWithout Warning The Lauren Agee Case

Sheila Wysocki is a mother of two and an accomplished private detective. It’s not usual to see those two epithets applied to the same woman, but Sheila herself is hardly what most people would consider usual. After solving her former roommate’s murder, a case that had gone cold for more than 25 years, Sheila devoted herself to detective work completely, founding the non-profit Without Warning: Fight Back. She uses this as an outlet for advocating for victims of crime. She is a licensed professional investigator, who will get to the truth no matter how long it takes.
Talk to Sheila, it will be clear that she makes no distinction between her life as a mom and her life as a professional investigator. In fact, her motherly instincts influence her investigative work, as she often relies on her gut feelings to guide the directions of the analyses and reports that she makes. Sheila has a unique way of solving her cases using what she calls her secret weapon of dyslexia. She sees cases in a way that isn’t the norm, instead of being a disability, she considers it an ability to see. She is widely known for what she does, having appeared on Anderson Cooper, Dateline, Katie Couric, Biography, ABC’s 20/20, Crime Watch Daily, Criminal and numerous other podcasts. She was also featured in the Washington Post.

From the moment her parents moved Brittany to Chicago from her birthplace in San Francisco, she was determined to go back to California one day. She’s a Chicago girl living her dream in Los Angeles working in the entertainment/music industry with a side hustle as a blogger/influencer, “Back to Brittany.” She knew she wanted to start a blog to tell my story after college after she decided she wouldn’t be pursuing the traditional broadcast journalism role. Brittany moved back home and got a social media internship while waitressing on the weekends to save up to move to LA. When she wasn’t working, she was building up her following and writing blogs about her path to make it to LA. Now she works full-time in her dream industry, while blogging about the LA Lifestyle and how to survive & thrive here. How did she get here? Well, it wasn’t easy and she is currently working even harder to turn her side hustle into a full time gig! Not only does her side hustle help to pay the expensive bills, but she absolutely LOVES inspiring others to go for their dream. She’s always been an ambitious person and made the decision to move to LA with basically nothing. It makes her happy to be able to share her story and help others do the same.

PM18 Report – Day Four: Thursday, July 26

Good morning PM18!

Time flies when you’re having fun. Can you believe that today is the last day of Podcast Movement? It feels like we were just getting started.

The goal is to make today count. We strongly encourage you to keep networking and attending sessions that will help you in the next year. Please remember to share with us some of your favorite moments using the social feed in PM18 app.

PM Central is still Open

The exhibitor booths may not be there, but the networking is still in full swing in the Networking Lounge (sponsored by Acuity).

The PM Midway game area (sponsored by Podcasters Paradise) is also still open, and there is nothing like day #4 for some fun time. This is your opportunity to challenge a colleague or new friend to a game.

And if you’ve not found them yet, we’ve got some bean bags, and comfy chairs, on the fifth floor…in case you need to relax (or crash) after the crazy Castbox Party last night.

We urge you to take advantage of these areas on the last day!

Today’s Schedule

You can access today’s schedule via the PM18 app or from the website. Here are a few events that you will want to keep on your radar.

Jack Daniel’s PM18 Afterparty Happy Hour – 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Fieldhouse Sports Bar, just across from the Downtown Marriott
Jack Daniel’s wants to make sure you make the most out of PM18, so much so that they’re buying you food, and Jack Daniel’s specialty cocktails. Don’t miss your chance to hang out with your fellow attendees one last time, courtesy of JD!

We’ve been waiting all year for our afternoon with Terry Gross, and this is it! Terry is one of the most respected, and successful, people in all of broadcasting, and we’re excited to get the chance to learn from her, and pick her brain in the Q&A the follows!

Unofficial Meetups ** You are welcome to check out the unofficial meetups for Wednesday as well if you are looking for additional things to do!

Today is the last day to connect with the exhibitors at their booths in PM Central. You will want to make this opportunity count for sure!

How are you doing with the Scavenger Hunt inside the PM18 app? Today is your day to get caught up if the progress yesterday was slow, plus you will be eligible to win some fabulous prizes! We also heard a rumor that PM18 emcee Donald Kelly is looking for cornhole challengers in the PM Midway. We would love for you to humble him via cornhole.

Today’s Schedule

You can access today’s schedule via the PM18 app or from the website. Here are a few events that you will want to keep on your radar.

If you’ve ever wished that a Podcast Movement party would have more food (13 food stalls to visit), more drinks (open bars), more DJs, more dancing, more acoustic music, more magicians, or just more fun…then Castbox is here for the win.

Rock the Castbox Party!7:00 pm to 10:00 pm across the street from the Marriott at  the world famous Reading Terminal Market

It is central to the exhibit hall, close to several of the top breakout session rooms, and right next to the free coffee station. The PM18 app has an impressive feature that allows you to request and make appointments with your fellow attendees (See below to download).

    • Pop A Shot Basketball
    • Arcade Games

Attract More Listeners To Your Podcast Without Spending Tons of Money

This is a guest post from Rob Peterson, Director, Audience Acquisition at Audioboom

You’re all set. You have a great idea, you researched all the best recording equipment and you’re confident you worked out all the kinks in your test episodes. All you have to do is hit publish and release your brand-new podcast to the world! Now that episode one is out, here comes the tough part: Finding people to listen to your show.

With over 525,000 active shows available on Apple Podcastsand more being added every dayattracting listeners is a daunting task for new and existing podcasters. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to get your show in front of potential listeners and turn them into life-long fans.

Jordan Bonaparte, host and producer of The Night Time Podcast, believes in tapping-in to the podcast community itself. “My most effective audience acquisition activities involved collaborating with similarly themed podcasters.” Jordan says. “These collaborations could include guest appearances on other shows, promo or ad swaps, and/or references to each other’s work on episodes.”

Many podcasters are happy to help promote their peers’ podcasts because they know what it’s like starting out and trying to find new listeners. Promotion from other podcasters can come in the form of an ad or promo swap between shows so that each show can reach new listeners. Another way podcasters can work together is by doing guest swaps where the host of one podcast appears as a guest on another podcast and vice versa.

The hosts of Night Call leveraged guest appearances on Blank CheckThe Daily ZeitgeistLovett or Leave It and Behind The Bastards to reach new listeners. The fans of those shows got a sample of what to expect on Night Call when they might not have otherwise even heard of the show.

So what about social media? Christine Schiefer and Em Schulz, hosts and producers of And That’s Why We Drink, say that Twitter and Facebook were key to growing their audience and turning first-time listeners into dedicated fans. “We were able to connect directly to people with interests in both the paranormal and true crime and communicate with them one-on-one,” says Christine.

The more you communicate with fans one-on-one the more you enrich your relationships and the more likely they are to recommend your show to others. Em agrees, “It’s been really great to see people join the group because their friends recommended [the podcast] or someone they followed on social media gave us a shout out.” Facebook Live, Instagram Live and Snapchat are all platforms you can use to promote your show.

Dan Misener, Head of Audience Development for Pacific Content, a branded podcast network, points to how a well-executed marketing plan can lead to a successful podcast launch and uses the live lecture series-turned podcast, Trampoline Hall, as an example. “When they launched their podcast, they did a bunch of smart things: they reached out to their existing community through their email newsletter, they organized a launch party where they got everyone to subscribe to their new show. It was a well-executed launch designed to appeal to existing podcast listeners and new podcast listeners alike.”

And speaking of newsletters, there are dozens upon dozens of podcast newsletters designed to help die-hard podcast listeners discover new shows. If you’re looking to get more eyes and ears on your show, ask the editors of these newsletters to review your show or a specific episode. As an added bonus agree to share their newsletter with your followers so you both benefit. RadioPublic published a helpful blog listing established podcast newsletters with tips on how to pitch your show!

This is all great, but what about Apple Podcasts and Spotify?

There’s no denying that Apple Podcasts is one of, if not, the biggest player in the game in terms of listening and discovery. Apple Podcast’s top 200 charts are an extremely important tool for discovery. Getting your show on the charts leads to boosts in listens and adds legitimacy to your show, but it’s also extremely competitive and this is where your fanbase comes in. Encourage your fans to help your show grow by reminding them to rate and review at the end of every episode. As those reviews come in your ranking continues to climb within the Apple Podcast ecosystem.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on Spotify as they continue to grow their footprint in the podcast industry. Shows like And That’s Why We Drink have seen tremendous audience growth due to features on Spotify’s desktop and mobile app as well as being included in advertising campaigns for Spotify.

With so many avenues for promoting your show it’s easy to expect immediate results but make sure to keep yourself grounded. This American LifeThe Joe Rogan Experience and WTF with Marc Maron have all been around for a decade or more. It took years for those shows to build the massive audiences they enjoy today. Start with 100 listeners and work your way up from there, and don’t forget the people who helped you get to the top of the charts!

If you’d like to learn more about growing your audience then make sure to join me, Rabia Chaudry (UndisclosedThe 45th)Chelsea Cox (Deliberations)Dossie McCraw (Spotify) and Dan Misener (Pacific Content) at Podcast Movement’s Audience Acquisition Panel, Tuesday, July 24 at 11:00 am in room Grand A/B.

TWO BIG ALERTS FOR REGISTERED PM18 ATTENDEES

We’ve lowered childcare costs at PM18:

For the past few years attendees have requested childcare to be offered at the event, and this year we have full coverage available to you all four days. However so far, enrollment has been low, so we’d like to help by cutting the cost of enrollment in half.

LEARN MORE AND ENROLL

The host hotel is SOLD OUT (under our block)

We’ve been warning for weeks, and have been adding rooms to our hotel block fast and furious. However the hotel alerted us last week that they are close to capacity, so would not be allowing any more bookings under our discount.

Your three main options at this point are to:

  1. Register directly with the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, and pay the current market price (they’re even making us do this for our remaining internal rooms).
  2. Book one of the hotels within walking distance.
  3. Make use of our handy-dandy roommate finder, AKA our Room Share Document, which can be found below.

FIND A ROOMMATE


Sticking with our 4th of July theme… here is some podcast news to continue the parade!

  • Inalienable Rights – Our friends at Nielsen shared a study that looks at the spending habits of podcast listeners when it comes to holiday necessities like barbecue sauce, ketchup, and sunscreen!
  • Francis Scott Room-Key – The PM18 Host Hotel is at capacity. Our room block is full and has been for about a week. The hotel is even charging Podcast Movement staff the public price for any additional rooms we need to add! What does this mean? It means that you can check out the roomshare doc if you are open to a roommate at the Marriott, or you are welcome to seek alternate accommodations outside of the host hotel…there are a few other great options a short walk away!

We hope that you safely enjoy this holiday with friends and family if you are in the United States. If not, we hope that you continue to enjoy the freedom that podcasting allows you to share your message.

Life, Liberty, and the Pod-suit of Happiness,

Team PM18

What do Podcast Movement and the World Cup have in common?

Greetings PM Family,You may have heard about a small event happening in Russia over the last 2 weeks called the World Cup. This international soccer (or football, depending on where you are reading this) tournament is held every four years, and captivates millions of fans.Podcast Movement has some similarities to the World Cup.

  • The world cup has over 30 countries represented in the tournament, PM had over 20 countries represented last year, with even more expected this year.
  • The World Cup splits teams into 8 groups, PM splits sessions into 6 tracks.
  • You are not allowed to use your hands in soccer (unless you are the goalie). Podcasting has hands free microphones..

Alright, perhaps it is a stretch to compare the World Cup to Podcast Movement, especially that last one. However, the excitement that is building for Podcast Movement is unmistakable! This week we tip our hat to the World Cup, and share some more exciting updates, including more information on the Google Podcasts session, the announcement of the Audible Pitch Contest (submit your pitch now), preview the Jack Daniel’s PM18 Afterparty, announce the host of this year’s Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame ceremony, and your chance to sign up to record live at PM from the Podcast Pavilion!

Audible Original pitches at Podcast Movement

If you’re a creator attending Podcast Movement, check out this amazing opportunity to pitch your idea to Audible!


Audible is producing a slate of world-class audio programming — from original, immersive experiences like Stinker Lets Loose! to exclusive audio-first memoirs like A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World performed by David Spade, to audio reboots of classic comedy such as Dr. Katz: the Audio Files, and much, much more.  And they’re accepting submissions from Podcast Movement participants! 

What do you need to submit?

  • 1-2 page pitch treatment
  • Resume/bio for any attached talent
  • Optional: link to audio sample of proposed series, audio sample of past work and/or sample scripts or related writing

Audible is primarily looking for narrative audio with a strong sense of story and a comedic bent. They’re not looking for comedians in a room talking to one another. The pitch should have direction and structure, clearly embrace an audio-first / audio-only experience, and they’re looking to hear about a full and funny world. Audible is also open to other genres, sketch, one-person shows, personal memoirs, and listening experiences that break new ground in audio entertainment.

Please make your submission at adbl.co/pitch

Submissions must be received by July 13, 2018.

A Short List will be selected by July 20th and participants will be invited to pitch their idea to Audible executives live at Podcast Movement on July 25th.  


By submitting your idea, you agree to the terms of Audible’s Submission Agreement found here: Submission Agreement.  Audible plans to select three submissions for possible further development into an original audio show for Audible.  If they select your idea for further development and you agree to sign Audible’s standard Development Agreement, $1000 will be payable to you pursuant to the agreement.
