Greetings PM Family,

It is no secret that we love what happens live on stages! We
always have. Whether it’s enjoying an episode of Saturday Night
Live, or watching a local high school play, the live element
often creates a memory that you never forget. It could be
attending a concert, or rewatching a video from an infamous
moment such as the Beatles performing on the Ed Sullivan show (
https://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/38u7zznl2akh92zm6/dpheh0/aHR0cHM6Ly95b3V0dS5iZS9KQzBNRUY2ZDFlVQ== ) in 1964...live moments on stages
are something that we celebrate, and one more reason why we love
in-person events!

This year on the Podcast Movement stages: something new.

We’ve always had different “tracks” of sessions to choose from,
depending on your area of interest. However this year we’ve made
it even easier to find the sessions most relevant to you, and
immerse yourself as much (or as little) in those specific topics
as you’d like!

This year we unveil our track specific stages. So if you’re
coming to PM18 looking to learn everything there is to know about
spreading the word about your show, then the Marketing Stage is
where you want to be. Looking to learn all about the inside
workings of podcasting? Then the Industry Track is the place to
park. Check out all the stages here ( https://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/38u7zznl2akh92zm6/e5uph7/aHR0cHM6Ly9wb2RjYXN0bW92ZW1lbnQuY29tL2NvbmZlcmVuY2UtdHJhY2tzLw==
).

Spotlight (on the stages)

We aim to make our stages better every year, and this is possible
due to incredible support from our sponsors. This community and

Philadelphia!

They deserve to take a bow (PM18 Ambassadors)

Significant events cannot happen without substantial people. We
are pleased to share with you a new role that you will see in
action this summer. A handful of Podcast Movement community
members will act as ambassadors at this year's event. You may
recall that we introduced a few of our ambassadors recently when
we shared with you the scholarship winners for this summer. We
have nine additional ambassadors that will be joining this year
at PM18!

What is a PM Ambassador? A PM Ambassador is a PM attendee, just
like you, who is good to connect with, and are proven supporters
of the PM community. They are also a group of people that keep a
lookout for other attendees who look confused, need help or look
alone.

If you are looking for good people to meet or interview for your
podcast, we recommend that you consider reaching out to one of
our Ambassadors!

There's nothing like being there live...so let's make it happen!

Podcast Movement was created because we, podcasters ourselves,
wanted a place where podcasters from all over the world could
congregate, come together, and call their own. We love the
podcast community, and there is nothing we like more than to
bring it all together...and it won't be the same without you!

and some detailed pre-production advice (

McLoughlin.

Be Heard
In case you missed it, Podcast Movement was honored to feature
some of the great mothers from this community (
https://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/38u7zznl2akh92zm6/d0pseh0/aHR0cHM6Ly9wb2RjYXN0bW92ZW1lbnQuY29tL3BvZGNhc3QtbW92ZW1lbnQtY2VsZWJyYXRlcy1tb3RoZXJzLWRheS0yMDE4Lw== ) for Mother’s Day! Please consider
checking them out and saying hello!

Rare Occurrence
James Cridland from Podnews recently discovered a company (
https://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/38u7zznl2akh92zm6/e55aph7/aHR0cHM6Ly9wb2RuZXdzLm5ldC9hcnRpY2xlL3JvdHRlbi1hcHBsZS1wb2RjYXN0LWNoYXJ0cw== ) that you can pay to get you to the
top of Apple Podcasts. We agree that the “pay to game the system”
strategy is a losing one. Rob Walch of Libsyn recently spoke with
Apple, and said that shows that pay for this strategy are being
blocked from the platform ( https://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/38u7zznl2akh92zm6/758b7h8/aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZmFjZWJvb2suY29tL2dyb3Vwcy9wb2RjYXN0bW92ZW1lbnQvcGVybWFsaW5rLzE2NjUxNTU4ODY5MDUzNjAv ). Stay
away!

We appreciate you being a part of this community. Our version of
the “family reunion” is this summer in Philadelphia. We are
looking forward to seeing many of you there, and hoping that the
rest of you can either make it or make plans to join us via the
Virtual Ticket!

We have more great news next week, so stay tuned!

You sound great,
Team PM18
