It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means: more exciting announcements for the biggest event in podcasting, Podcast Movement 2023!

PM EVENT NEWS
Tom Webster returns to the Keynote Stage
All longtime Podcast Movement attendees, as well as anyone who keeps track of the podcast industry, will recognize Tom Webster as one of the top names in industry research and analysis. Having taken the keynote stage almost every year since 2017, we’re excited to have him return!
Tom returns with the largest study Sounds Profitable has ever undertaken: The Podcast Landscape in America. This will be the definitive study on why people do or do not listen to podcasts and what makes them stop listening over time. The study will look at the various segments of podcast listeners and outline a call to action for both the industry and individual creators to keep the space growing.
Donald C. Kelly’s Decade-Long Journey Turning a $30 Mic Into a Thriving Empire
If you’ve come to Podcast Movement for any length of time, you’ll recognize Donald as either a mainstage emcee, a panel moderator or participant, or a co-host of the annual new-attendee orientation. But this year you’ll know him as one of our keynote speakers, sharing his podcasting journey.
Whether you are a brand-new independent podcaster, an established brand with a mega show, or somewhere in between, Donald will break down his incredible ten years of podcasting and the doors it has opened for him. From forming a thriving sales organization, to authoring four books, to becoming a sales influencer with organizations like LinkedIn, Salesforce, and HubSpot, and lots in-between. Donald’s high-energy story will motivate you, make you laugh, and leave you inspired to take action!
