The full PM19 schedule is released, scholarships are presented, and more!

The Full PM19 Schedule, Scholarship Recipients for PM19, The Creation Track sponsored by Himalaya, and Community Updates

Greetings PM Family,

Our theme for today’s newsletter is toys! Toys are a blast. They help individuals of all ages learn valuable problem-solving skills. Children can use toys to explore object durability. Objects such as blocks help teach and build motor skills. Playing with toys is one physical activity which helps with growth.

Podcast Movement loves all types of personal and professional growth. We are committed to helping every member of this community to grow. One of our favorite opportunities is to bring the best experience under one roof to share with attendees

We subscribe to the mindset that the community is wiser than the individual. It is incredible what we can learn from each other, regardless of category and level of skill. Industry insiders can learn from independent podcasters. Broadcasters can teach valuable skills while also gaining new insights for the future of audio from the podcast community.

Today we share the full PM19 schedule, scholarship recipients for PM19, the Creation Track sponsored by Himalaya, New Speaker Announcements, and Industry/Community Updates!

Shall we proceed? The magic eight ball says “It is Certain”.

Bringing all of the Pieces Together: The Full PM19 Schedule

*** Please note that while we do our best to provide a complete and accurate schedule, certain circumstances might cause there to be slight changes prior to this year’s Podcast Movement. ***

The PM19 Schedule is Live!

We are proud to finally bring to you the nearly complete schedule for this summer’s big event! With over 150 sessions, panels, workshops and keynotes, we will not even try to list them all here. You can view them all via the Conference Schedule page on the website. You can start marking your favorites now, and don’t forget to check in on the latest update of amazing speakers taking the stages!

If you’ve not yet registered, you may want to consider getting a pass that includes the Virtual Ticket when you do. As you know, it is impossible to attend all of the sessions, so the next best strategy is to plan which presentation you will attend in person, and which ones you will make plans to view later on with the Virtual Ticket! And if you can’t make it to Orlando, you can get the Virtual Ticket as a standalone pass!

We are excited to hear which sessions you are planning to attend in person. Please feel free to share this with us in the Podcast Movement Community group on Facebook.

Surprise! PM19 Scholarship Recipients

Surprise to the following PM Community Members…

In 2018, Podcast Movement launched a new scholarship program to give a deserving few new podcasters, who are not able to afford to attend on their own, the opportunity to win a scholarship to attend the full event in Orlando, and also act as brand ambassadors for PM19.

We had nearly 100 podcasters send us their scholarship applications, but we could only choose 20 scholarship recipients. That said – it’s time to announce the community members selected for scholarships to Podcast Movement 2019 in Orlando this summer.

The Southeast Meetup Tour

Last week was a blast! 4 podcast meetups in 4 days in 4 cities! Birmingham, Nashville, Atlanta & Charlotte! Special thanks to Mark Deal from Podcast Atlanta, Clark Buckner and Angus Nelson from the Podcast Nashville meetup as well as several others that made this tour possible. We are planning more meetups post PM19!

You’ve got a friend in PM..

Toys give us an opportunity to play and use our imagination. Podcasts also provide an outlet for creativity and originality. We hope to help your podcast continue to not only be a resource or content, but to be fun enough that it feels like play (or at least your listeners continue to press play for your show).

To Infinity and Beyond,
Team PM
