Art Of Storytelling

If you are a fan of Serial, Hardcore History, Planet Money or any of the other top rated podcasts - you are familiar with the grip of a great long-form audio program.

This session will show you how to craft, script, and deliver shows to rival the best podcasts out there. Learn about story structure, content, and engagement hooks. Presented by Meg Wilcox.

Editing With Style

How to create a signature sound, and elevate the quality of your podcast - so people can recognize it anywhere, anytime.

We’ll learn about different kinds of cuts, music punctuation, and other editing techniques from a seasoned audio production professional. Presented by Brock “Skywalker” Armstrong.

Interview:Deconstructed

How to conduct engaging, in-depth interviews that will delight your interviewees and your audience.

As part of this session, we will do a live demonstration where the speaker will walk us through how to plan your interview, structure questions, and navigate the conversation as it’s happening. Presented by Adam Rozenhart.

Engage. Grow. Monetize

Engage. Grow. Monetize - Most of us would like to reach a larger audience, and build a community around our ideas and shows.

This session will walk you through how to find and connect with your listeners so that you can develop better show ideas, grow your subscriber numbers, and eventually consider monetizing. Presented by Scott St. Pierre.

After the conference, our friends at WorkNicer will host a cocktail hour with beer on tap.
