PodSummit is the premier podcast conference that hosts 100 podcasters and content creators from across Canada and the US.
Proudly built by podcasters, for podcasters.
Returning for the third time to Calgary, AB we are excited to bring together podcast creators, industry experts, and the podcast-curious for the first and only podcast conference in Western Canada.
Who is PodSummit for?
You will meet fellow content creators, professional (and not so professional) podcasters, and of course 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, we'll show you how to start one, and welcome you to our community.
We are looking for a stellar team of 3 - 4 volunteers to help us make PodSummit III an exceptional experience!
It's pretty light duty, and you get to partake in the conference and all goings on behind the scenes, as well as hang out with the speakers and organizers.
If you would like to help us, please GET IN TOUCH!
