Greetings PM Family,
It’s been a wild few weeks at Podcast Movement HQ, as we are already hard at work planning an amazing Evolutions in March, and PM24 in August!
This week, we’ll let you know how to take part in Evolutions, how to hang out with us next week, and a whole lot more.
Evolutions is coming to Los Angeles! Take the Stage next March!
The can’t-miss podcaster event of the spring is this March in Los Angeles, and we can’t wait to see so many of you there! But have you ever thought about taking the stage yourself?
If so, then you’re in luck! We are now accepting applications to speak at Evolutions 2024.
Evolutions is all about the changing landscape of the podcast and audio industry, and if you’ve got a fresh idea or perspective, then we want to hear from you!
Keep in mind that last year we had over 600 submissions and expect more this year. There are a limited number of spots to fill, but you never know if you don’t try! YOU HAVE UNTIL NOVEMBER 3!
Join us next week in New Orleans?
The Podcast Movement team will be making our annual trip to FinCon next week, which means we’re hosting what is one of our biggest annual meetups as well!
We’re meeting in the courtyard at B Mac’s on St Louis St from 7 pm to 10 pm ET on Thursday, October 19. We look forward to hanging out, eating some great food (on us), and talking about our favorite thing: podcasting! Please make plans to join us if you are in the area!
Join Us for Evolutions this March and PM24 next August!
Join Us for One or Both Events in 2024
Join podcasters and industry professionals from around the world for our two big events next year.
Evolutions is March 26-29 in Los Angeles, and Podcast Movement 2024 is August 19-22 in Washington, D.C. Learn more about the differences here.
Both events feature hundreds of educational sessions across curated tracks, an innovative expo hall showcasing the latest tools and technologies, and of course the best networking and parties in podcasting.
PODCASTING IN THE WILD
Podcasts + OOH = The Perfect Match
What better way to celebrate our “industry holiday” than to share our message on one of media’s biggest stages? We celebrated International Podcast Day (September 30th) in a BIG way, by unveiling creative on a Times Square billboard, thanks to the help of our partners at OUTFRONT. A major moment shared on an iconic canvas. Click here to learn more about how Podcasts + OOH = The Perfect Match.
ALSO IN PODCASTING
Most podcasters are big fans of audio and podcasting themselves (duh), and one of our favorite places to celebrate that love of audio is the On Air series of events. In fact, we’ll be Hanging out next month in Los Angeles at their LA Annex!
Join them as they convene throughout the city, from KCRW in Santa Monica to dublab in University Park. Listen in on live tapings, wander through site-specific stories, and hear conversations from the cutting edge of sound.
If you want to join, they’ve given the PM community a discount, using code PODCAST-MOVEMENT-20. REGISTER HERE and say hi if you see us!
PM Community member Shaun Michael Colón has been hard at work for the last several years on the podcast industry documentary, Age of Audio. In fact, they were just awarded the 2023 Austin Film Society “North Texas Pioneer Award” Film Grant! But they could still use your help!
With contributions from revered hosts like Ira Glass, Jad Abumrad, Kara Swisher, Roman Mars, and indie podcasters such as JT Green and Kaitlin Prest, the documentary paints a vivid picture of the art form, technology, emerging monetization models, and the highly engaged communities that have shaped this industry. Through the lens of these creators, “Age of Audio” weaves an intimate, often humorous, and sometimes harsh narrative that vividly portrays the struggles and triumphs inherent in building an entire industry from the power of the human voice.
GOOD LUCK SHAUN!
We’ve got a very exciting announcement coming soon that we can’t wait to share, so keep your eyes on this space in the coming weeks.
