How to Join the Podcast Revolution

Panel
Monday, February 24, 2020

Podcasting is not new, but 2019 was the year this medium really took off! In 2020, the number of podcasts are expected to grow even faster. According to PodcastHosting.org, January 2020 statistics show that there are over 820,000 podcasts and over 28 million episodes. 50% of American homes are podcast fans.

What is a podcast?
Basically it’s a series of audio files placed on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device. While this sounds simple, there are a lot of steps involved in creating a quality podcast, making it available, and getting people to listen.

This month, we will present a panel of podcasters who have taken this new path to content delivery. They’ll share their experiences, tips, missteps and the secrets to creating a killer podcast series.
