Whether you're a first timer at Podcast Movement, or just looking to get back into the swing of things, this session is for you!

Podcasting Goes to Hollywood

Wednesday, August 14th

As podcasts are made into TV shows, movies get their own companion podcasts, and the creative forces behind TV and film hits move into podcasts (and vice versa!) it's worth asking: how does podcasting interact with traditional media? And where do current podcast creators fit in to that ecosystem? Join Brad Smith (Simplecast), Matthew Whitehurst (The Hollywood Reporter), Sim Sarna (Cloud10), Dan Ferris (CAA), and Rae Votta (Netflix) to discuss what's next for podcasting.

Thursday, August 15th

As a newer medium, podcasting has endless opportunities to be a more equitable place. But podcasting doesn’t exist in a bubble, which means it can also repeat the same mistakes of other mediums–including perpetuating wage and monetization gaps. Join Jeanine Wright (Simplecast) and Amira Valliani ( to discuss how wage gaps in podcasting are happening, what other mediums & systems podcasting is replicating, and what we can do from inside and outside our own networks to mitigate it.

The Future of Podcasting is Community

Thursday, August 15th

Podcasts offer the one thing content can't buy: community. Through powerful stories and compelling ideas, podcasts can offer people a sense of belonging and stability in an increasingly unstable world. Join Brad Smith, CEO of Simplecast, Jenny Kaplan and Shira Atkins from Wonder Media Network, and Zachary Davis, VP of Premium Content at Himalaya Media as they discuss strategies for creating content and employing tools to build passionate podcast communities.
