The PM16 schedule is now LIVE! Plus two new speaker announcements to make your HAPPY!

June is upon us, which means only one month to go until we’re all together in Chicago for PM16! And what better way to kick off this home-stretch month than with some great news?!?

We are proud to release the official session schedule for PM16. We encourage you to click here to start making your plans, and marking the sessions you don’t want to miss!

Podcast Movement’s 80+ sessions offered are the most we’ve ever had, and that’s in an attempt to make sure no matter where you’re at in your podcast journey, or what section of the podcast industry you’re a part of, we will have two full days of programming that is FOR YOU!


Included in the full schedule are two new sessions that PM16 is proud to announce:

Gretchen Rubin - Rectangle

The Happier Manifesto for Podcasting with Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Rubin is one of the most thought-provoking and influential writers and podcasters on habits and happiness. Her New York Times bestseller, Better than Before, is about how we change our habits. The Happiness Project and Happier at Home were both instant bestsellers, and The Happiness Project spent more than two years on the bestseller list, including at #1. She has a popular podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, and we’re excited to have Gretchen sharing her Happier Manifesto for Podcasting at PM16.

Larry Rosin - Rectangle

Edison Research’s Latest Podcast Survey Data with Larry Rosin
Bring your questions for this interactive session!

Larry Rosin is President of Edison Research, which he co-founded in 1994. Since then he has been a primary force in building the company into one of the world’s most respected survey research companies, with a particular specialization in media and election polling. Edison is well known for its groundbreaking media research series “The Infinite Dial” which tracks developments in digital media, and “Share of Ear” which measures all audio usage in the U.S., among many other things. We’re excited to have Larry discussing how this all relates to us as podcasters and the podcast industry!
