PM18 Report – Day Four: Thursday, July 26

Good morning PM18!

Time flies when you’re having fun. Can you believe that today is the last day of Podcast Movement? It feels like we were just getting started.

The goal is to make today count. We strongly encourage you to keep networking and attending sessions that will help you in the next year. Please remember to share with us some of your favorite moments using the social feed in PM18 app.

PM Central is still Open

The exhibitor booths may not be there, but the networking is still in full swing in the Networking Lounge (sponsored by Acuity).

The PM Midway game area (sponsored by Podcasters Paradise) is also still open, and there is nothing like day #4 for some fun time. This is your opportunity to challenge a colleague or new friend to a game.

And if you’ve not found them yet, we’ve got some bean bags, and comfy chairs, on the fifth floor…in case you need to relax (or crash) after the crazy Castbox Party last night.

We urge you to take advantage of these areas on the last day!

Today’s Schedule

You can access today’s schedule via the PM18 app or from the website. Here are a few events that you will want to keep on your radar.

Jack Daniel’s PM18 Afterparty Happy Hour – 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Fieldhouse Sports Bar, just across from the Downtown Marriott
Jack Daniel’s wants to make sure you make the most out of PM18, so much so that they’re buying you food, and Jack Daniel’s specialty cocktails. Don’t miss your chance to hang out with your fellow attendees one last time, courtesy of JD!

The Key to Inclusivity: When it comes to inclusion, the Personal is Universal 2:15 pm to 3:00 pm in the Grand Ballroom
We’re thrilled to welcome the team from Latino USA, along with two returning keynote speakers, to discuss some of the most important topics in podcasting today. Don’t miss this conversation!

Closing Keynote: All I Did Was Ask: An Afternoon with Terry Gross 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm in the Grand Ballroom
We’ve been waiting all year for our afternoon with Terry Gross, and this is it! Terry is one of the most respected, and successful, people in all of broadcasting, and we’re excited to get the chance to learn from her, and pick her brain in the Q&A the follows!
