Learn from leading podcast professionals at WMG’s first-ever podcast roulette! At this event, you get to ask the questions. Structured as a series of small group rotations with industry experts, you’ll have the opportunity to ask for feedback on your own podcasting projects. Registration will be limited so that all attendees will have time to consult with podcasting pros who specialize in production, strategy and operations, monetization, marketing, partnerships, and more. Whether you are just beginning to think of producing a podcast or you have questions about any aspect of a podcast you already manage or host, this is a unique chance to consult experts.
All proceeds from this event support the Women's Media Group Educational Foundation.
