Outlier 2023

The recently concluded Outlier Podcast Festival left attendees buzzing with excitement, inspiration, and a renewed passion for podcasting. Held at Fab Factory Studios in North Hollywood on May 18-19th, this dynamic gathering brought together indie podcasters, industry leaders, sponsors, and enthusiasts from around the country.

While host, Ever Gonzalez was unable to attend due to illness, the festival was flawlessly hosted by Larry Roberts and Holly Shannon, who stepped in with less than a 48 hour notice and ensured a seamless and extraordinary experience for all. I have received tons of texts, emails, and phone calls about the festival and how much people enjoyed it.

The festival opened its doors to a community of podcasters eager to connect, learn, and exchange ideas. The incredible lineup of speakers, thought-provoking panel discussions, and practical breakout sessions made the event an unforgettable celebration of the power of podcasting.

Keynote speakers took the stage to set the tone for the festival, sharing their wisdom and insights. Each keynote address left the audience inspired and ready to embark on their podcasting journey with renewed determination. Their ability to ignite passion and provide invaluable advice set the stage for an extraordinary event. Thank yous to our keynotes Damona Hoffman, Laura Cathcart Robbins, Kimi Culp, Sarah Merrill Hall, and Mark Hentemann. Read More
