Podcast Events 2018

On the day of writing this, the first Podcasting Event of 2018 opens its doors…

Last year we went to as many as we could and… The experiences we had, knowledge we learned, and people we met was simply amazing.

Not to mention the amount of drinks we consumed with new friends. ?

One thing we found is that there aren’t exhaustive lists of all the events, and even when writing this we discovered so many that we didn’t know existed.

So here is our list of the podcast events of 2018, we have not attended most of these… Therefore in the interest of fairness we have simply listed them in date order, with links.

Please do let us know in the comments if we have missed any podcast events. Or do get in touch if you would like us to add your podcasting event.
