Dan Franks, one of the co-founders of Podcast Movement is my guest this week!  We talk about the 'origin story' of the biggest, national podcaster convention in the U.S.! I ask Dan about how putting together the first year was, and the evolution of the conference over the last 3 years! Since the recording of this episode, I've finalized my plans to attend PM16 this year and hope that everyone considers joining me!

TPD 86 - Jakob Lewis from Neighbors and The Heard


Jakob Lewis from Neighbors and The Heard joins me to talk about his podcasting journey! From cabinet making to storytelling workshops to public radio, Jakob gives us a great 'behind the scenes' look at how he has taken his idea for a show to a member of Nashville Public Radio and a founding member of the audio collective, The Heard.  Neighbors is an excellent show, and it comes with my highest recommendation!
