Julie Shapiro, executive producer of PRX's Radiotopia podcast network, revisits the ten tips for starting a podcast she shared at our 2017 Conference, ​now seeing them ​through the lens of Ear Hustle, the highly-acclaimed podcast she ​helped launch from San Quentin State Prison​ a few months later​​.  Ear Hustle hit #1 in the iTunes chart within days of launching, and in this session Shapiro deconstructs the team's approach to season one, and shares more essential advice for starting a show. Through a sound-rich sampling of Ear Hustle and other podcasts, Shapiro will also explore podcasts' particular super power: inspiring empathy in audiences. Come prepared to be moved, and to leave prepared to move others.
