It’s the Final (Evolutions) Countdown!

Happy Thursday, PM Family, can you feel the excitement?

We’ve got less than a week until the festivities kick off, and we could not be more excited! The Podcast Movement team hits the road for Los Angeles this weekend, and many more from the podcasting world will be joining us a few days later.

As the famous hair metal band, Europe, would say:

It's the final countdown
The final countdown
The final countdown (final countdown)

Let’s do this.


When we first came up with the Evolutions concept, we wanted it to be like a class reunion mixed with continuing education for podcasters and industry folks – but cooler. You'd come back every year, and each time, you'd dive into what's new and exciting in the world of podcasting. New tools, the latest tech, fresh research – you name it, ensuring no two years feel the same. And of course, great company, some parties and good times along the way.

The Content is Key at Evolutions

We're excited to keep this vibe going into 2024. With more than 125 sessions lined up, we've got something for everyone. Whether you're just starting out, you've been in the game for years, or you're somewhere in the middle, there's plenty to get everyone excited too. Next week, the content is broken down into five tracks, so you can pick what’s right for you this year at Evolutions.

Sessions on this track are, as you can imagined, focused on the fundamental skills, knowledge, and topics that make up the foundation that everyone in podcasting need.
