Peabody & Murrow Award Winner Shima Oliaee is Coming to Evolutions 2023!
Shima Oliaee, the creator of the award-winning Dolly Parton's America, as well as The Ambie's Podcast of the Year nominee Pink Card, is taking the main stage at Evolutions in just two weeks.
March 8 is International Women's Day, and on that day we're excited to feature a producer who has used her podcasts to shine a light on brave, strong women from across the globe. Learn more about Shima, catch her at The Ambies on March 7, and then on the main stage at Evolutions on March 8!
All-Star Panel Takes the Main Stage
The main stage on March 8 is not finished yet, as we're thrilled to host a panel of media creators that features moderator Sarah Burke (EIC of Conde Nast's THEM) and panelists Lance Bass, Bridget Todd, Carmen Laurent, and Dr. Jonathan Higgins, to discuss their approaches to creating podcasts for a new generation of LGBTQ+ audiences, and to announce an all-new project that they're all a part of.
Evolutions Attendees: Join Us At The Ambies!
For the first time ever, Evolutions attendees are invited to join in the fun of the premier awards celebrating excellence in audio: The Ambies. Attendees will be required to RSVP in advance, as space will be limited.
The Ambies will take place on Evolutions' kickoff evening, on March 7, 2023 at 6pm. So after you grab your badge but before you hit the town, join us at the world-famous International Theater inside the Westgate Hotel for the awards ceremony.
