From brand-new podcasters to audio veterans, our goal is to gather together as a community and provide valuable learning opportunities for all attendees.
This year, all breakout sessions and panel discussions will fall under one of seven “tracks.” Our schedule will indicate which “tracks” of sessions are specifically for beginners prior to the event. Keynote speeches will be broader and should appeal to all who are in attendance.
The following tracks will be how each session’s topic is categorized. As you will see below, categories are broad in order to help you determine the overarching goal of each track, as well as help you decide which session is right for you.
