Podcast Movement 2017 has a tendency to slowly reveal who will be speaking at the event. Previously, they announced a group of podcasters who will be speakers. Now, they are announcing one more.
Aaron Mahnke will be a speaker at Podcast Movement 2017. He is the creator, writer, and producer of the hit podcast LORE. The podcast was one of iTunes’ Best Podcasts in 2015, an AofP Best Podcast winner in 2016, and it is now headed to television.
Lore is a critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. Aaron Mahnke uses historically accurate information to bind together stories by a common theme. He spends over twenty hours a week on research. LORE started in March of 2015 as a hobby and a last ditch effort to market Mahnke’s fiction.
LORE is becoming an hour-long anthology television series from the producers of The Walking Dead. The TV series will debut on Amazon Video. In 2018, Del Rey Books (Penguin Random House) will debut the first installment of The World of Lore book series.
This brings the list of Keynote Speakers at Podcast Movement 2017 to:
- Aaron Mahnke – LORE
- Rabia Chaudry, Colin Miller, and Susan Simpson – Undisclosed
- Shannon Cason – Homemade Stories
- Dan Carlin – Hardcore History and Common Sense
