Power of the Podcast
Today, there are over 30 million podcast episodes in the world. And in 2020, for the first time, more Americans listen to podcasts weekly than attend church or religious services.
We’ll talk with our panel about their experiences in this powerful and growing medium, both on-air and what happens behind-the-scenes. We’ll learn how they got into it, why they love it, and what it takes to get one started. And we’ll talk about the future of where we think it can go. Can’t wait to see you there!
