ALAS, this weekend, I will not be in the room where it happens.
It’s not my party. I didn’t RSVP in time. And I’ll cry because I want to.
The aforementioned “room” is Chicago. The “it” is the 2018 Third Coast Conference. To extend the metaphor a bit further (Hamilton references aren't dated yet, are they? I'm late!), some of podcasting's Founding Folxs will be there leading sessions I will personally be very sad to miss, including...
Speaking of ears: do you hear that?
It’s the distant sound of podcast nerds (myself included) singing a chorus of "allelu"s at the mention of those names. It's the sound of ears that can see because the writing is so good. It's the sound of experts in the craft of creating audio stories (aka podcasts) sharing their knowledge and lifting all of us up, together.
Jokes aside, I’m bummed that I won’t be able to learn from these luminaries and others at Third Coast.
Rather than sit in my sorrow, though, I thought I'd take the occasion of the impending audio conference to share some overdue reflections and takeaways from an Audio Conference of Yore that I did attend: Podcast Movement, which took place right here in Philadelphia—eons ago—in July.
