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!
Shoutout to Bits of Time for shining a light on the truth of podcasting. Everyone's podcasting journey is unique, so don't compare someone's sShoutout to Hit Shuffle for the stone cold truth on editing. Who needs coherent sentences when you can laugh with a co-host? That's the beauty of podcasting.
