Get hitched this week to Podcast Movement…we’re going to space…technically!

PM19 Technical Track, NASA offers an awesome opportunity to PM19 attendees, New Speaker Announcements and Industry/Community Updates!

Greetings PM Family,

One of our all-time favorite movies is the Princess Bride. We don’t condone bullying, but when it comes to Peter Cook’s Impressive Clergyman, you can’t help but chuckle.

The clergyman is romantic and clueless during Prince Humperdinck and Buttercup’s wedding. Check out this iconic scene.

June has traditionally been the most popular month for weddings in the US. There are a number of reasons for this, ranging from traditions to folklore to etiquette (you can read some of that here if you like). June also brings breaks from school, and from dangerous winter weather, which helps guests make the trip from out of town to be in attendance.

And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good celebration? Weddings are a great time to celebrate. Podcast Movement also happens to have a lot to celebrate this week. We plan to share more about the Technical Track at PM19, share an exciting offering that NASA has for a handful of PM attendees, and discuss some updates from our industry and community.

Let’s get stawwted!

PM19 Technical Track: Presented By Podcast Engineering School

We are proud to have Podcast Engineering School as the sponsor for this year’s Technical Track at PM19. Chris Curran is the owner and operator of Podcast Engineering School. He created a compelling preview of all the technical track presentations that will happen at the conference this summer in Orlando, where he spoke briefly with each speaker on this episode of his Podcast Engineering Show.

What does the Technical Track at PM19 entail?Podcast Movement 2019 will be home to some of the best technical experts in podcasting. Whether you’re looking for ways to podcast from mobile devices, trying to figure out what plugs into where, or need a few handy tips on editing your content like a pro—you’ll find sessions on various topics throughout the week.

What speakers are featured on the Technical Track and what will their topics be? Here is a sample of those already announced:

We will release the full PM19 schedule soon, letting you know when and where to find these sessions, as well as panels, breakouts and workshops available on other tracks/stages in the very near future.

NASA Extends a Generous Invite to a Few PM19 Attendees

Our friends at NASA have offered to host some PM19 attendees at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center for a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility and one-on-one interviews with NASA researchers. It will be an epic, full-day event and take place right before conference.

Here are the event details so far:

Date: Monday, August 12

Time: TBA. It will be an all-day event, starting in the late morning and ending around 5 pm ET.

Location: NASA’s Kennedy Space Center

Number of participants: The max number of people is 20 to give the selected participants an even more exclusive experience.

Security: All participants will need to be cleared for access to the facility. The process takes ~14 days for U.S. citizens and ~30 days for non-U.S. citizens.

Applications: Applications from participants will be collected by the team at NASA, who will then extend invites to attend the event. NASA will open up applications this month.

Schedule: TBA. NASA will set aside some time in the schedule for podcasters to interact with their experts (perhaps some astronauts, too) and possibly record segments and interviews for your shows.

We will share more info about this soon!
