The Podcast Host has announced it’s launching a new free online event for independent podcasters. Indypod Summit ‘23 is February 2, 2023. The first 500 registrations are free.
Speakers already announced include: Elsie Escobar (She Podcasts and Libsyn), Arielle Nissenblatt (head of community and content Squadcast.fm), and Jeremy Enns (Podcast Marketing Academy), amongst others.
The event’s keynote speech will be delivered by Colin Gray, founder of The Podcast Host. Colin will be giving event attendees exclusive access to the results of the 2022 IndyPod Census, as well as his take on what the results tell us about the future of the independent podcasting landscape.
Gray says “A lot of the research around podcasting is currently skewed towards mid-level and highly successful podcasts. Which is understandable, given how much easier it is to reach and engage podcasts that are run as or for a business. But the problem is that we risk missing out on a huge and important section of the industry: the beginners, part-timers, and side hustlers in podcasting.
As a company, supporting and empowering independent podcasters (or ‘Indypodders’!) has always been our mission. The Indypod Census, and now our new online conference, IndyPod Summit, are part of this mission, as we bring independent podcasters into the arena. We want to hear the voice of every indypodder, from as many corners of the industry as possible, so that they can have their say and play a part in shaping the evolution of the industry.
If we can gather those insights, those reflections and gauge their mood, then it can help to craft an industry that serves them, and that anyone can be proud to be a part of.”
