Book your PM22 Hotel Now!
Podcast Movement has negotiated a special discounted rate at our host hotel (which is also where the event takes place), but the number of rooms available is limited.
Each year our rooms sell out, and attendees have to book off-site. Don't miss out on your chance to stay where all the action is at PM22!
EVOLUTIONS SESSION RECORDINGS
The PM team has been working on getting the session recordings from Evolutions ready for you to view and enjoy. Great news: They're LIVE!
Videos for all 100+ sessions from the Los Angeles event are now available on-demand. Just sign in to your Swapcard account as you did for the live event, and you'll have access to all sessions included in your pass tier.
If you weren't able to join us, you can still have a front-row seat to the best talks and education in podcasting. Click below for purchase options.
PODCAST MOVEMENT UNIVERSITY
This section is for Podcast Movement University news and upcoming events. If you have not joined PMU, you can join here for free.
Podcast stalled? Here are some fresh ideas – CEntrance founder and CEO, Michael Goodman, joins us today at 3:00 pm for a live presentation on how to get out of a rut and podcast like a pro. Join the conversation live here.
Last week, we asked our Twitter community about the kinds of support that mean the most. Shoutout to The Flaky Foodie for encouraging feedback from each listener! Your podcast won't be everyone's cup of tea, but there's always room to learn.
