Community Hot Take

Speaker Applications are Now Open!

Remember to be VERY SPECIFIC in your submission. For example: “How to Step into Your Greatness” or “How to Kill it in Social Media” are too generic and broad. Be specific; title your topic geared to this particular audience.

Each pitch/presentation should be about one topic. For example: “How to Start, How to Grow and How to Make Money” is again, too broad as there is no way someone could offer that information effectively in a 20-30 minute talk.

Be sure to read the "Guidelines to pitch a winning presentation for Podfest Expo below!

This report is based on filtering out all the shows that don’t actually matter. The Actively Established Podcast Report displays interview based independent podcasts only. All celebrity podcasts, non-interview based, big network podcasts, and podcasts with only one episode have been removed from the results.

Actively established podcasters are interview-based show hosts with more than 100 episodes released without missing beyond a percentage of episode releases along the way. They’ve consistently created content for their podcast since launching!

For an independent interview-based podcast, we’ve found that it takes 100 episodes before meaningful traction begins. Growing your influence and impact with listeners begins at 100 episodes, so that’s what we’re tracking! Read More
