    • “Hi Joe, what an epic weekend!! It took us 15 hours to get home but dude, it was so totally worth it. In fact, we are making plans for next year; and, I’ve just been contacted to help another family…#ThePowerofThePodcast
    • Thank you again so much for giving me the opportunity to cross a long awaited dream off my #PodcastingBucketList. I plan on practicing a lot more because one day…I’m going to be a podcast keynote speaker somewhere (yep, just added three more items to my 2015 Podcast Bucket List). :-)”

    • “First, because it was a super value! For $35 you got a t-shirt, 2 meals, headshots, networking opportunities, prizes, and awesome speakers and entertainment. Seriously? It’s almost too good to be true:) Secondly, I enjoyed the laid back nature of the event. Being a full blown introvert, I get a lot out of smaller events because it is so much easier to really get to know people. When I left, I felt like I made lots of new friends:) I will definitely be back next year!”
      Terry Berge
    • “These are the types of podcasting events that I enjoy. They are smaller, easier to connect with other podcasters, and the content is a little more ‘packed and ready’ than the ‘buy my product’ conferences.”
