PM EVENT NEWS
The Schedule is LIVE
We get it, you want to know what actually is going to be happening on-stage at the event this year. If you’ve been to previous Podcast Movements, you know the sessions do not disappoint. But if you’re a first-timer, we know it’s like a mystery box, and you want to see what’s inside.
Have no fear, because the schedule is here!
Remember, the event is spread between three tracks: Beginner, Podcaster, and Industry Pro. The pass you buy determines which sessions you can attend.
Industry Pro > Everything!
Podcaster > Everything on the three Podcaster stages, plus the Beginner Stage and Expo Stage
Beginner > Everything on the Beginner Stage and the Expo Stage
And of course, ALL attendees will get to come to the parties, networking events, and more!
So what are you waiting for? Check out the full schedule now!
