🏛 PM24 Speakers Announced, Meetups, plus Breaking News at PM24

Happy Wednesday, PM Family!

It’s been a minute since our last check in, but with just over two months to go before PM24 goes live, we’ll be back more often to make sure you know everything that’s happening at the big show this August.

The PM Team has been on the road meeting hundreds of you all across the northeast, which we’re excited to share more about below. We’ve also got our first round of speaker announcements, plus some more fun things!

And if you’re in Orlando, JOIN US TONIGHT!

Let’s go!


Join us in Washington DC!

We are excited to announce the theme for Podcast Movement 2024:

This year’s event, taking place in the heart of the United States—Washington DC, is a nod to the city’s significance as the capital of the nation. However, our theme goes beyond the geographical context. Washington DC, known for its rich history and influence, perfectly symbolizes the central role our event plays in the podcasting ecosystem. By gathering in this iconic city, we aim to highlight that for over a decade, Podcast Movement has been the epicenter where podcasters, creators, and industry professionals converge to share knowledge, foster innovation, and shape the future of podcasting.

Ticket prices go up TOMORROW, so secure your spot before that happens to make sure you don’t miss a minute of podcasting’s flagship event.

Every summer since 2014, Podcast Movement has gathered thousands of passionate podcasters and industry professionals from around the world under one roof to learn, grow professionally, and most importantly evolve and improve the podcast community.


Announcing our first round of PM24 Speakers & Panelists!

For over a decade, Podcast Movement has been honored to feature speakers from all over the podcast ecosystem on our stages across the country. In 2024, this continues, as we have the honor of welcoming podcasters and professionals from throughout the industry to educate, entertain, and inspire.
