I released my very first Podcast on April 29, 2005. Tod Maffin made me do it. That is to say, I heard him talk about podcasting during a technology segment on CBC Radio. That, combined with Brent Bambury’s announcement that he was leaving CBC Ottawa resulted in the launch of Electric Sky.
Electric Sky led to The Canadian Podcast Buffet (which led to Podcasters Across Borders). Some brainstorming at home led to Growing Enthusiasm. Podcasters Across Borders led to Just One More Book. Do you see the pattern yet?
In addition to all of my hobby podcasts, last year I started to produce a number of Podcasts on contract through my company, Third Storey. Suddenly this little seed that Tod planted had become an all encompassing way of life.
To celebrate my second anniversary as a podcaster, I invited the creator of the monster I have become to talk a bit about podcasting and how the movement looks two years later.
A long version of this interview will be released on MarkBlevis.com later this week.
