Things we heard at Podcast Movement
The focus on media-backed podcasts, and those backed by large corporations is making the indie podcaster feel like they are being pushed aside
- There is not enough representation of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds in podcasting
- It’s hard to understand the data of analytics and leverage it to monetize
- Podcasting is yielding lots of opportunities for entrepreneurs and hobbyists alike
- Intellectual property laws are leading to lawsuits because podcasters don’t fully grasp you can’t simply use music and soundbytes (or even sample it!) that are licensed without permission
- Podcasters want lessons in terms they understand, not just a bunch of hyped up advertising and legal jargon, and the list goes on
That’s the beauty of attending live conferences like Podcast Movement.
We get to meet with people in the thick of the industry and hear their stories, struggles, and ideas.
We hear what is being said, Tweeted, and shared on Facebook and Instagram. We’re listening in the hopes of helping to make RSS.com, and the medium of podcasting, better every day.
Couldn’t make it to the day’s presentations? Below are some of the resources we found from speakers that had sessions today.
- Stephen Hart shared an awesome presentation about building a brand, and we found a very similar presentation on his YouTube channel
- We also found a podcast episode of Jesse Brown from Canadaland sharing many of the same amazing truth bombs he uncovered at the conference.
- Astonishing Legends shared their entire process, and you can see the architecture of a single episode here: https://twitter.com/rss/status/1423383190861983749
- Sharing this resource again for anyone that missed it. We found this amazing playlist on the Podcast Movement channel that you have to see! Though they are not all presenting exactly what they did at the conference, it features many of the speakers that spoke live in Nashville!
- Fatima’s presentation was about creating a brand for your podcast – she wrote about the subject extensively on her website

At the @PodcastMovement conference, and I have learned a lot of interesting things, but the most interesting is that the Gaylord hotels are WILD. Full waterfalls and boat rides in one of the many lobbies pic.twitter.com/r41BUzvdRZ— (((Leah Donnella))) (@AskLeezul) August 5, 2021
