Pre-Conference Workshops & Orientation, TryPod and more!

Greetings PM Family,

In this newsletter we’ll discuss the Pre-Conference Workshops, the #TryPod Campaign and the upcoming PM meetup in Vancouver, British Columbia. Let’s get started!


Two Awesome Tuesday Workshops

Podcast Movement has offered various workshops over the last few years the day before PM officially begins, in order to provide additional value on topics that may not be covered in full detail during the event. These add-on workshops have proven to be awesome experiences for all who’ve been involved!.

We are excited to announce two of the four workshops that will be available this year on Tuesday, March 22, as well as an awesome new feature for all attendees!

So you’ve decided you want to start a podcast – awesome! Now comes the tough part: putting a plan together to help you pull off a successful launch. Starting a podcast comes with many moving pieces: equipment, software, format, frequency, scheduling, publishing, promoting – it can be overwhelming. Not to mention the fact that launching your podcast is only the beginning.

This full day workshop will be a progressive, step-by-step deep dive that any brand new (or just getting started) podcaster will get a ton out of!

This workshop is hosted by Podcasters Paradise, and is being lead by John Lee Dumas and Kate Erickson of EOFire.


Discover how Spanish language podcasting is growing in the US, Spain, México, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Argentina and many other countries. Find out the current trends in formats and available opportunities. Learn how to do a successful Spanish language podcast in this unique workshop.

This workshop, which will be in Spanish, is hosted by PM family members Melvin Rivera Velazquez, Harry Duran and Felix Montelera.


New Attendee Networking Orientation (and Alumni Refresher)

It’s no secret that Podcast Movement has continued to grow every year. This year we’re hosting something new, specifically for new attendees who want to get the most out of PM (and meet some awesome people)! It’s also open to past attendees who are looking to connect with new faces, and get a refresher on what Podcast Movement is all about.

This event will be hosted by PM family member Joe Saul Sehy from the Stacking Benjamins Podcast, and requires no additional RSVP or registration.

Mark your calendars for 3pm on Tuesday, August 22!
More details to come.

Have you told anyone to #TryPod lately?

This month the hosts of hundreds of shows including Stuff You Should Know, Planet Money, Missing Richard Simmons, Crimetown and many more are encouraging listeners to introduce a friend, relative or coworker to a new podcast, and, show them how to listen if they don’t know how. Listeners are being asked to share stories of why they listen and what their favorite podcasts are using the hashtag #trypod.

We are encouraging the PM family to join in this worthy endeavour to help grow the visibility and understanding of podcasting amongst friends, family and colleagues.
