Greetings PM Family,
Podcast Movement is proud to take a moment to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his peaceful struggle for civil rights helped pave the way for healing that continues to this day. Our society is still a work in progress, and we're grateful for his leadership and sacrifice.
This week we share additional keynote speakers for Evolutions, uncover the Expo Bonus Stage presentations, review the “Did You Know?” segment on facts about Evolutions, and provide the link to the open speaker submissions form for PM20 in Dallas!
Let's keep moving.
Additional PM Evolutions Keynote Speakers
Last week we introduced three of our keynote speakers for Evolutions. This week, we are eager to share with you two more keynote speakers.
Evolutions is all about moving the medium of podcasting forward, and few host and producers embody this mission like Misha Euceph. In 2019, Ad Week named Misha “Producer of the Year,” her podcasts made 9 best of lists, and she reached over 2 million people. Misha is a Pakistani-American podcast host, writer, and producer and recently made “Tell Them, I Am.” The LA Times called the show “quietly revolutionary,” and we can't wait for her evolutionary talk next month at Evolutions!
The act of evolving often only happens after a failure…or a lot of them! James Altucher has started and run more than 20 companies, and is currently an investor in and advisor to over 30 more. But at one point, James lost everything. In a matter of months, his account drained from $15 million to $143. Depressed and on the floor, James realized today's standard view of success comes with conditions, and the only effective way to be successful is to “choose yourself.” And we hope you choose to join James for his talk during the Saturday morning keynote at Evolutions!
Next week we'll have information on the iHeartRadio Party at Evolutions…the biggest podcast party of the spring!
PM Evolutions Expo Bonus Stage
Evolutions has so many amazing sessions; we could not contain them to one of our track-specific stages. Regardless of which of the three ticket types you register for, the Bonus Stage in the Evolutions Expo Hall is open to everyone and will have sessions going all day, every day, February 13-15. We are excited about them and encourage everyone to check them out!
