If you could ask thousands of podcast listeners, what would you want to know?
Now's your chance!
We’re working with a marketing and research team to conduct a national study of podcast listeners. First, we need to know what’s important to YOU – the podcast creators. In just a few questions, please share your input on the topics and issues that matter most.
With this short survey, your answers will be the key to stronger insights. Stay tuned: All-new findings will be presented at PM22 on August 25.
PM22 Scholarship Application Deadline is THIS FRIDAY!
The deadline to apply for a PM22 scholarship is this Friday, July 1 at midnight. These scholarships are for those who are looking to attend a Podcast Movement event, but are unable to due to financial restraints.
