I really believed after last week, there wouldn’t be any more Podcast Movement announcements to cover. But that changed today when the conference announced that keynote speaker Glenn Beck is stepping down due to illness and is being replaced by WTF host Marc Maron.
Marc Maron began his career as a standup comedian. He also hosted a show on the Air America radio network. He started the WTF podcast in 2009. The show has acquired a large and loyal fanbase due to Maron’s candid interviews with professional comedians and other celebrities. WTF also made major headlines last month when Maron interviewed President Barack Obama.
Podcast Movement has definitely been on a roll this year and bringing in Marc Maron as a last-minute replacement for Glenn Beck is sure to make a lot of podcasters happy. Tickets for the conference are still available and in honor of today’s news, Podcast Movement is offering a special $100 discount by using the code MARON100 at checkout.
