Silvers to Present at Podcast Movement 2016

Taft Chief People Officer Beth A. Silvers will present to active and aspiring podcasters, industry representatives and professionals at the 3rd annual Podcast Movement 2016, which will take place July 6-8 in Chicago, Ill. Silvers and co-host Sarah Stewart Holland broke through in 2015 with their podcast Pantsuit Politics, a political podcast with an emphasis on nuanced and respectful political discussions, which grew from 200 to 20,000 subscribers in a little over two months.

In the presentation, Silvers will discuss:

  • What she and Holland learned as two average moms talking politics in an arena filled with bigger, louder voices. 
  • How she broke the experts’ rules by openly admitting her biased perspectives, and how podcasters are uniquely positioned to fill the void in a media environment too often dominated by experts and professionals. 
  • How to expand on the role of community-building and listener feedback, and its importance when occupying the space as an “amateur.”
