Alaskan Podcaster to Take Spotlight at Podcast Movement 2023

ANCHORAGE, AK, USA–Podcast Movement, the largest podcast conference in the United States will hold its annual gathering in Denver, Colorado on August 21-24, 2023. Every summer since 2014, Podcast Movement has gathered thousands of passionate podcasters and industry professionals from around the world under one roof to learn, grow professionally, and most importantly evolve and improve the podcast community.

In addition, longtime Alaskan podcaster, Robert Forto (First Paw Media) will speak at the conference to share insights about building a lasting podcast and the mindset behind creating a quality show. In his talk, titled, The Hidden, secret formula, that we discovered after struggling for eight LONG years of Podcasting that led us to a million downloads, attendees will discover what actually matters (and doesn’t matter) when it comes to producing quality shows people want to listen to and will share. Along with the super-simple–even my seven-year-old can follow it–system to promote your show and other key takeaways.

“Podcasting in particular, has this amazing way of allowing people to host to uplevel their network. It really opens doors and creates opportunities. I can’t emphasize this enough,” says Forto. “So instead of focusing so much on the audience, if you focus more initially if you just think of the guest, the audience, and the listenership it will take care of itself, right? If you just think instead of who your ideal listener is, you think primarily about who’s your ideal guest. Whom do you want to build relationships with? Who do you want to serve? Once you take that approach, things can dramatically change,” states Forto.
