What Makes Independent Podcast Conference
So Special?

What Are Others Saying About Indie Pod Con?

  • Hi Joe, I joined the Indie Podcasters Facebook group a couple of months ago, and I just wanted to say thank you for what you do with this group. I’ve been watching the various training on and off as I can, and it seems that you’ve really created an amazing community of genuine people who support each other. I’m excited to be dipping my toe into it and hopefully I’ll make it to an “in life” conference one of these years, or be able to join one of your masterminds. I really enjoy podcasting so I assume this is just the start of my journey with it. 😉 Thank you again for your help along the way.

    So many people I have met through the ICON family. I know I would not be where I am with my podcasting efforts without Super Joe and the group he has built.

    The networking, the people and the relationships that I built here I can imagine will last for years. I was thrilled to be there, and be in this awesome environment that Joe has put together.

  • Good morning Joe,
    I hope that you are taking a few days of well-deserved rest after leading such an AMAZING event!
    Thank you so much.  The location was stellar, and the attendees were warm, engaging and generous with sharing their knowledge to the MAPCON folk. 😀
    To put it simply:  It was an AMAZING experience, and I am looking forward to next year!
    Joe, I truly believe that the best is yet to come for your vision, and I am excited to have been a part of the journey.  Thanks so much and I'll be spreading the word!

    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.

    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). :-)

    Had a great time! It was intimate in a way that gave me plenty of time and opportunity to meet a bunch of great people. Also loved the speakers.

ICON and MAPCON Founder Super Joe Pardo

ICON originally started out as Mid-Atlantic Podcast started (December 2014) as a Facebook group for podcasters who live in the Mid-Atlantic States (North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Connecticut). The idea was to bring podcasters together for meet ups, Google Hangouts and eventually grow into conferences. After seeing the interest to have a podcast (exclusive) conference in the northeast, Joe Pardo jumped on the opportunity to make it happen.

Independent Podcast Conference (ICON) is an extension of Super Joe Pardo’s passion to host amazing events with great people!
