Greetings PM Family,
Happy 4th of July to our community members in the United States!
PM19 celebrates this week with some firework-like announcements! Guy Raz is coming to PM19 as one of our closing keynote speakers, we take a dive into the Society, Culture and Advocacy track (sponsored by Lipstick & Vinyl), and review the pre-conference activities that attendees won’t want to miss! Let’s light the fuse, stand back and enjoy this illuminatory display!
Raz, White and Blue! Guy Raz announced as a PM19 Keynote Speaker!
Podcast Movement is very excited to have Guy Raz as one of our keynote speakers for PM19.
Guy is the host of NPR’s How I Built This and the TED Radio Hour. On his newest show on Luminary, Wisdom From the Top, he talks to great leaders from C-suites, government and nonprofits about their stories of crisis, failure, turnaround and triumph. In this session, Guy and a special guest will share their “wisdom from the top” journey for the podcast industry.
Guy will be a part of our closing keynote sessions on Friday afternoon, August 16th. Also a part of the closing keynotes will be Earlonne Woods and Nigel Poor from Ear Hustle, along with a very special guest of their own (stay tuned).

We are proud to have Lipstick & Vinyl as the sponsor for this year’s Society, Culture and Advocacy Track at PM19!
The Society, Culture and Advocacy Track encourages speakers and attendees alike to address some of the most difficult, but also most important, topics head-on.
