Greetings PM Family,
February is an exciting month with a lot of things to celebrate. We celebrate Black History Month and Valentine's Day. Podcast Movement is giving you another reason to shake it like a polaroid picture: PM21 Speaker Submissions are now open! We are also proud to share the PodMov Daily and RØDE equipment giveaway, where you can win some awesome free audio equipment, and we close it out with some excellent updates from the community.
The PM21 Speaker Submissions are LIVE!
Podcast Movement is proud to create an environment at our events that allows the opportunity for creators from all over podcasting to share their expertise on the largest stage for podcasters in the world. Podcast Movement 2021 in Nashville, TN this August 3 – 6 will be the place to be (socially distanced and safety measures intact, of course).
We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity by putting your most creative presentation ideas forward. It doesn't matter what level of experience you have, we'd love to see your ideas and to try our best to find fits for as many awesome speakers as possible. Your processes, passion, and podcasting skills are likely to inspire and help others, whether they are just getting started, or have been doing it for years. You may have some perspective that helps a veteran to rethink their own technique and systems, or some that help a fellow podcaster finally clear a big hurdle they've been struggling with.
And as always, PM21 will also feature panels and talks from the most prominent networks, organizations, and industry professionals. So if that includes you, then there is no better place to share your insights and perspectives with thousands of podcasters from around the world.
All sessions are split up in three ways, so consider what categories are best for your ideas, and then get them ready to send our way! SUBMISSIONS CLOSE ON MARCH 31!
