Excited to have Dan Franks, co-founder, and co-organizer of Podcast Movement, as well as Business Manager for Midroll, join us on the podcast this week. Podcast Movement has been going strong since 2014 with no signs of slowing down. It is the largest event in the space with over 2,000 people slated to attend this year. It will be held in Anaheim, CA, August 23rd – 25th.
Dan shares the motivation for starting Podcast Movement, some of the events and speakers he is most looking forward to this year, this year’s Academy of Podcasters’ Hall of Fame class, as well as some of the outside activities that you should make sure are on your schedule. We also discuss some of the big themes in podcasting right now since Dan can keep his thumb on the industry with access to so many podcasters.
Whether you are signed up for the event already, thinking about going, or just wondering what the exciting trends in this space are, you are going to find valuable information from Dan Franks in this chat.
And while I am sad to report that I will not be attending at this time (this is explained in the interview), I do want to encourage you to say hi to our founder Joe Berman, who will have a podtopod table at the conference this year.
