The Industry Track sponsored by Coleman Insights, Additional PM19 Speakers and Community/Industry Updates
Greetings PM Family,
We hope that you are enjoying some of the Women’s World Cup action this month in Paris, France! It is exciting to see competition support so many women athletes from around the world. Podcasting is like the Women’s World Cup in the sense that it provides women from every nationality and background to have a stage to share their talents. We love that about podcasting and welcome the Women’s World Cup soccer (or football depending on where you are reading this) theme for this week’s newsletter.
Today we focus primarily on the Industry Track presented by Coleman Insights, new PM19 speaker announcements, community/industry updates and close with a parting thought on winning! Let’s kickoff shall we?

Share Your Wins!
I received a message in the Podcast Movement Community Facebook group this past week. The message was from someone in our community who has put countless hours over many years into podcasting. The individual did not want to brag publicly, but just received an $8,000 sponsorship!
Podcasting can sometimes feel like a thankless and endless task! We need the community to keep us encouraged to continue doing the work that we feel compelled to do via our podcast platforms! Please share with us your recent wins for your show in the following post in the Podcast Movement Community on Facebook.
