Aug 12, 2019

Podcast Movement 2019 Conference, August 14-16, 2019, in Orlando, Florida, has many conference tracks, sessions, meet-ups and networking events to consider.

As the host of Agile Digital Business podcast, I'm excited to be attending the conference and to get to meet up with many of my friends and colleagues who are in the podcasting arena. As an author, speaker and instructor in digital leadership and transition, and voice search marketing, the topics planned for the conference are particularly timely for me.

Bossjock, Backpack Studio App

Please note that I recorded this studio remotely while in Orlando. I was using the Bossjock app on my iPhone 7 Plus for the first time. After recording the show segments and bringing my music in to the app to create the episode, I later found that there is a new app available, Backpack Studio, that provides for more advanced podcast recording and editing while on a mobile device. I'm eager to download and try Backpack Studio before my next remote podcast recording and editing session!

Here is a summary of topics I cover in this episode about planning for participation in Podcast Movement:

The conference tracks include: creation; technical; industry; marketing; monetization; society, culture and advocacy; and audio drama/fiction.

I am starting the conference with the Women's Networking Event promoted by the hosts of She Podcasts, Elsie Escobar and Jessica Kupferman. The event is sponsored by the team at Rebel Base Media and a fellow Youpreneur Academy member, Mark Asquith.

Other sessions and events that I am looking forward to attending include:
