PodSummit 2018 Takes Place in Edmonton



PodSummit 2018 will take place in Edmonton, Alberta, on May 5. They invite you to join them, along with 100 podcasters and the podcast-curious from all over North America. PodSummit will be giving away over $3,000 worth of gear and software.

PodSummit is for fellow content creators, professional (and not so professional) podcasts, and the podcast-curious. If you have a podcast, you will learn how to make it sound amazing, grow your audience, and create content your listeners will love.

If you don’t have a podcast, PodSummit will show you how to start one, and will welcome you to their community.
