Welcome back to a week of PM updates!

Let's take a look.
PM EVENT NEWS
Evolutions 2022 Recaps
Over the past week, members of the community have posted great recaps. Here are a few that stuck with us.
For Podcast Business Journal, Matty Staudt shared what he learned, covering both the sessions and conversations with fellow attendees in the hallways.
“Helping each other, meeting with anyone who asks, and truly caring about our colleagues, even competitors, is what we as an industry are all about. I hope that continues, and I look forward to being back next year.”
6 Big Podcaster Takeaways from Podcast Movement Evolutions 2022
Jennifer Tribe, Head of Marketing at Supercast, covered six useful takeaways from the week's sessions and offstage conversations. From subscription strategies to the importance of quality, each section addresses what this means for you as a podcaster.
“There’s still plenty of room for growth in podcasting,” Tribe says. “If the big players are excited about growth at their kind of scale, that means there’s also plenty of room for smaller podcasts who don’t need to reach nearly as many listeners to build a thriving business.”
Podcast Evolutions Was Simply Electrifying
For Podcast Business Journal, Traci Long DeForge looked back at the “magic” of celebrating hard work, growth, connecting, and collaboration.
DeForge's conclusion is what we're all about: “There was a ubiquitous sense of commitment to coming together in a way that was dedicated to up-leveling everyone's success. That does not happen at every conference.”
What you need to know about Podcast Movement Evolutions
Isabella Maxey of Resonate Recordings reviewed the event day-by-day, from sessions to the excitement of networking. Her post opens with a terrific explanation of Evolutions and how it relates to Podcast Movement, our flagship event.
“Maybe you’re debating on going to Podcast Movement this year, or wondering what the difference is between Evolutions and the flagship. If you’re questioning whether or not any podcast conference is worth going to, spoiler alert — it is.”
Guys, Podcasting Is Officially A Movement
Ami Thakkar of Tuckered Out with Ami Thakkar does a beautiful job of sharing the event's core idea: Gathering podcasters to learn and connect in a meaningful way. Thakkar pitched and moderated the first-ever South Asian podcast panel, “Brown Table Talks: South Asians in Podcasting.”
“It is only at conferences like Podcast Movement that storytellers, networks, producers, advertisers, and those fancy tech people can unite in a truly genuine way. Seriously, I felt the love and support all weekend.”
