You know what? We decided that our Flyover Podcast Festival fans are right: the third annual Festival should be held virtually. And while we’re at it, we’re going to make admission free. We just want to learn about podcasting, make new friends, and have a great time! We hope you’ll join us on August 20 to celebrate the art and business of podcasting.

This year’s festival is sponsored by Podcasting Business School and WFHB. It was originally planned to take place in person over two days,  but feedback from customers led us to pivot back to the virtual format we used in 2020.

And why not? We’re podcasters, after all. Going virtual is what we do best!

We worked with podcasting expert Adam Schaeuble of Podcasting Business School to design this year’s event. Adam has been a hugely popular speaker at past Flyovers. He knows exactly what challenges podcasters face. He’s successfully grown a huge audience for his own podcasts and figured out how to monetize them. Most of all, he just really loves podcasting and brings so much energy and fun to sharing what he’s learned with others.

Adam also helped us secure expert speakers with top-ranked podcasts. Allison Melody’s “Food Heals” podcast has been hailed as the “Sex and the City for Food.” “Allison is the go-to person in podcasting when it comes to teaching podcasters how to set their show up for success with sponsorships,” Adam says. “I’ve sat in on a few of her workshops, and they are amazing. She can teach any podcaster what they need to know to get connected with great sponsors and build relationships.”

Other speakers include Karl Sona, co-founder of Streamlined Podcasts, who will speak on podcasting technology to improve audio quality, and Laura Michelle Powers, who has a top 100 podcast on Apple Podcasts and was recently interviewed by Will Ferrell on his podcast, “The Ron Burgundy Podcast.”

“All of our guest speakers are seasoned interviewers,” said Adam, “but Jerome Myers takes things to a whole different level. I’ve been on his show ‘DreamCatchers,’ and he curated one of the best conversations I’ve ever had as a guest on a podcast. He’s going to teach us how to become an elite interviewer and create a unique experience for our podcast listeners.”

We launched Flyover Podcast Festival in 2019 to support the booming use of podcasting among entrepreneurs, startups, and hobbyists. In fact, we have our own professional grade podcasting studio, sponsored by Shine Insurance, whose owner Jeremy Goodrich is also a passionate podcaster and shared his insights at the 2019 and 2020 festivals. Over a dozen member podcasts have been recorded there, including The Mill’s own podcast for startups, “Like a Glove,” featuring interviews with successful entrepreneurs about how they found product-market fit.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite and are free. See the complete schedule and speaker bios on the Flyover website.
