The PodcastBus is an unconventional bus ride that’s part conference session, part networking event and part sightseeing tour.
The PodcastBus is an innovative take on the traditional fireside chat that transforms a standard coach bus into a live podcast studio. We harness the often overlooked social aspect of travel to create memorable experiences for attendees and speakers alike. Our events connect people to insights, stories and advice from thought noted experts and thought leaders across various industries. Each event generally consists of two parts:
1. Live Onboard Podcast Recording
Onboard the bus, shortly after departing, we host an engaging discussion featuring noted leaders and experts across various business and technology. In most cases, you won’t be able to see the actual interview taking place due to the configuration of the vehicle used. As an attendee, you’ll listen to our conversation as it happens through the bus speakers, which act as our version of a live podcast. As we travel to our destination through the city, you’ll gain knowledge and perspective enroute.
While we are conducting the interview using the bus speakers, we are also recording video which you can view at your leisure and relive the experience after the event.
2. Connecting at a Communal Dinner at a Local Food Hall
Each PodcastBus event will end at a food hall, restaurant or “foodie” neighborhood. After the podcast interview and live recording session are complete, attendees will be grouped into small breakout pods of 4-6 people. Groups are generally curated according to interest and or need. It’s here where you’ll be able to connect with your fellow attendees and our featured speaker in a fun, casual and meaningful way.
Part live mobile podcast experience on a bus.
Part foodie social.
Come for perspective, leave with insight.
