Advancing Podcasting At Big Events - On Stage Or In The Audience [Episode 210]

For the final episode of the miniseries, I’m turning your focus to podcasting events and enlisting you in the cause of Advancing Podcasting.

It's worth revisiting the tenets of Advancing Podcasting to help illustrate why your appearance at conferences can help make podcasting better. 

  1. We believe that technology should make podcasting better, not just easier.
  2. We believe that new models are required to bring the ~75% of non- and infrequent listeners into the fold. 
  3. We believe in and respect the inherent choices made by podcast listeners, podcast creators, and podcast enablers.

I third tenet is something you should always have in mind, so this episode will focus on the first two. Specifically, I want you to: 

  • Submit a talk centered on ways to use technology to make podcasting better.
  • Be on the lookout for new approaches to podcasting that will bring in new listeners.

If you're going to be a Podcast Movement 2019, I will be there too! And I would love to meet you for coffee, drinks, dinner, or just a quick meet and greet. Get in touch with me wherever you can.  I'm @evoterra on Twitter, or you can email me at Get in touch with me and we'll book a time to sit down together. Let's not leave it to  random chance. Since I’m not presenting, I have plenty of time to meet other people who were interested in Advancing Podcasting.
