Podcast conferences and events are increasing almost as quickly as the uptake of the medium itself. For this special two-part episode of Insider InSites, I went coast-to-coast to attend the Winter Podfront in Los Angeles, the On Air Fest in Brooklyn and the RAIN Podcast Business Summit in Manhattan to gather insights from heads of networks, agencies and sales organizations to the podcast makers themselves. You'll want to listen to Part 1 to hear from Bryan Moffett, the Chief Operating Officer of NPR's National Public Media; Stitcher CEO Erik Diehn (pictured above, left); Design Matters host Debbie Millman (with her guest, Roxane Gay, pictured above with Millman), and Gary Reisman, former head of the LEAP audience targeting firm. He explains why he made the jump to launch a different kind of podcast network.
In Part Two (coming soon) we'll be featuring Google Podcast's Founder and Head of Product Zack Reneau-Wedeen; new iHeart Podcast Network President Conal Byrne; PMM CEO David Raphael; On Air Fest founder Scott Newman, and the man behind the agency that places more money in podcasting than any other, CEO of AdResults Marshall Williams.
Here's a teaser of what you'll learn about in Part 1:
