Let’s take care of our community

By their very existence, Podcast meetups and Podcast conferences reinforce a sense of community among their participants.  PodCamp Toronto was no exception.  In fact, PodCamp Toronto had the greatest number of sessions on the concept of community of all conferences I have attended and followed.  That made leaving the event early to catch a flight […]

Uncle Seth better than ever

UPDATE 070226: Added photo No matter the circumstances, any time there is a change in personnel in a band it can be stressful for both the band and its following. Just ask Van Halen. At what seemed to be their sudden expressway to superstar status in the Podcast community, Uncle Seth parted ways with their […]

PodCamp begins

There are about 200 people packed into room 359 361 of the Rogers Communications Centre at Ryerson University for the opening remarks of PodCamp Toronto. The whole room dynamic changed when Leesa Barnes challenged eveyone to meet three people you have never met before — “someone you didn’t come here with, someone you didn’t sleep […]

We’re here

Bob Goyetche and I arrived at our hotel a short time ago.  It was a great drive filled with planning our PodCamp presentations, editing presentation clips, listening to Podcasts and music, and blocking out the presentation program for Podcasters Across Borders. We’ll be making the slow hobble (see Bob’s post) to the Imperial Public Library […]

I have launched yet another project. Steve Hardiman and I are collaborating to explore the Return On Influence, and the elements that make it such a powerful idea. While the website is somewhat embryonic, still, we officially posted our first entry this evening.

Podcasting’s most underrated – Sonia Brock

One of the many things that Podcasting has going for it is the number of people who are speaking in an authentic voice. Sonia Brock represents this group well. Sonia produces a Podcast called A Storied Life, and the title couldn’t be more perfect. She tells the stories of her life in an intimate and […]

Blevis-ian editing, part 6 – Staggered Edits

In part 5 of this series, I outlined how to do an edit within an audible sound, such as splicing two words together using a common sound within each word as the “pivot point”. In this installment, I introduce an edit style that pushes some boundaries. Editing is a powerful activity. Editors can make or […]

Why I want Michael Geist to speak at PAB

I have been catching up on my blog reading over the last few days (I fell behind sometime in late 2006). I’ve made huge progress. In the process, I have been reminded why I want to have Michael Geist speak at Podcasters Across Borders. Actually, there are many reasons. Two of the posts that I […]

Podcasting’s most underrated – Andrea Ross

Being married to me has meant that Andrea Ross’ status in the Podcasting community has been overshadowed by my own. That’s a huge loss for the community because Andrea has done amazing things that have either gone unnoticed, or have been attributed to me. Prior to developing the concept for Just One More Book!! — […]

Geekstock

I’ve been chatting with Whitney Hoffman for the last hour as we prepare for our PodCamp Toronto discussion called Making a difference: What Return on Influence (ROI) really means.  She just made me crack up by referring to the many Podcast related conferences that we all flock to as Geekstock.  When I wondered aloud if […]
