IN MARCH 2025...

Podcast Movement returns to Chicago for the first time since 2016!

Each year, Podcast Movement events bring together and educate thousands of podcasters and podcast industry professionals to grow their shows, the podcast community, and the podcast industry.

The topics at Evolutions all focus on the latest research, tools, technology, and cutting-edge information that podcasters and professionals need to stay at the top of their game.

Evolutions features educational and informative breakout sessions and panels spread across three distinct content tracks, enlightening and encouraging keynote talks, and podcasting's best networking events and parties.

With over tens of thousands of podcasters joining us over the last 10+ years from over 35 different countries (and growing), we are excited to continue welcoming the podcast community to our events for years to come.


Think of Evolutions as three single-track events, all happening simultaneously, with combined keynote talks, parties, and networking events.


This track features three different stages (Create, Grow, and Profit) that will help active podcasters of all different experience and skill levels improve and advance their show.

This track is perfect for:

  • Podcasters who are looking for new ideas or techniques
  • Podcasters who are looking to grow their audience
  • Podcasters looking to start making money, or make more money


This track features presentations and conversations that are geared toward professionals in the podcast industry.

This track is perfect for:

  • People involved with the "business of podcasting"
  • Audio ad buyers and sellers
  • Radio industry professionals
  • Podcasters who want access to all Evolutions sessions


This track features a classroom dedicated to the fundamentals for beginners or aspiring podcasters throughout the duration of the event.

This track is perfect for:

  • Podcasters who have not yet started
  • Brand new podcasters who still need a lot of help
  • Hobbyist podcasters who just want to brush up on the basics

Each track is carefully curated to be a well-rounded offering of discussions covering the spectrum of podcasting. So instead of needing to decide what sessions to attend during each block, we do the hard work for you.

Simply register for the track that fits you best, and we’ll do the rest! (Note that Industry Professional pass will get you access to all sessions across all tracks).

Podcast Movement is committed to providing a welcoming and harassment-free environment. As such, we have written this code of conduct not because we expect bad behavior from our attendees, but because we believe one is necessary to building a respectful community space.

By participating at the event, you agree to abide by this Code of Conduct.

Be considerate in speech and actions, and actively seek to acknowledge and respect the boundaries of fellow attendees.
Willingness to coexist peacefully with opposing viewpoints, whether they be social, political, personal, or professional. In the words of the Django Code of Conduct: “Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners.”
If you feel that someone has harassed you or otherwise treated you inappropriately, please alert any member of the event team. Reports can be made in person or via the team phone/text line during in-person events, or via our mobile app or email at any time.
Take care of each other. Alert a member of the conference team if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this code of conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
Unacceptable behaviors include intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory, or demeaning words or actions by any attendees of the event and related event activities.
Harassment includes but is not limited to: derogatory comments or personal attacks (verbal, written, or otherwise) related to gender and/or gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, appearance, or ability.
Sharing and/or displaying material of the nature above
Unwelcome following and/or stalking with intent to engage another attendee, for any reason
Unwelcome photography or recording of another attendee
Unwelcome physical contact of any kind
Unwelcome sexual comments, jokes, and/or attention toward or about another attendee
Intentional disruption of talks or other conference events (verbal or otherwise)
Unlawful conduct such as disturbing the peace or use of illegal substances
Failure to obey any rules or regulations of the conference Venue.

Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate. This includes expulsion from the conference without warning or refund. If necessary, Venue security will be contacted.


Podcast Movement attendees are encouraged to post on social media during the event. However, please keep this statement from Theorizing the Web in mind: “What is said online is just as ‘real’ as what is said verbally.”

The above Code of Conduct is widely applicable to social media behavior, namely harassment. Malicious targeting of another person will not be tolerated, and reported violations may result in expulsion from the conference.

If you experience online threats or harassment as defined in this Code of Conduct during the event, please contact a member of the conference team.


Podcasting represents all kinds of social and political viewpoints, as do companies and organizations in the podcast space. Podcast Movement is sponsored by a range of companies, not all of which are aligned on every issue. Sponsors (all are listed on the event website) as well as attendees are bound by the same Code of Conduct during the event. While all are welcome to voice concerns to Podcast Movement leadership, willingness to coexist peacefully amidst ideological differences is part of every large industry conference.


If you would like to make any reports, please email us at [email protected]. You can contact us before, during, and after Podcast Movement events if you see or experience an issue. In addition, during an event you can DM any staff member on the event’s mobile app.

During in-person Podcast Movement events, we will also publicize a contact email and phone number, and point out event staff in matching t-shirts so you know who to contact if you see or experience an issue.

We welcome your feedback on this and every other aspect of our events, and we thank you for working with us to make them a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who participates.

This code of conduct covers the entirety of any Podcast Movement event.


The Podcast Movement reserves the right to warn, remove, or deny access to anyone not conforming to our code of conduct. We are not responsible for public spaces located around the event. These areas are open to any members of the public.
