Podcasting- Talk Radio for Geeks.
We’re getting shows of our own with geeks (new geeks, longtime geeks, casual chat geeks, or even well connected and established geeks) bringing in the occasional name value guests, where regular panels of geeks get together and discuss in detail about the latest in geekdom. And there’s even enough out there that you could have your own streaming “channel” to listen to every day, just with the bonus that outfits like SiriusXM can’t offer you of you being able to control the content.
And lots of people, people who would probably love what they would be hearing, have no idea what’s out there. That’s changing, but it should probably be changing a little bit faster, and there’s really only one way to make that happen. We need to be talking about the podcasts we love. We need to be spreading the word, because we as their fans and our word of mouth praise are the only “advertising dollar” that a lot of these ventures have.
Here’s a simple proposal to start the ball rolling on my end. I’m going to tell anyone willing to read this about some of my favorite podcasts, and all I ask in return is (1) give at least some of them a listen, (2) talk about them to others if you like them, and (3) leave a comment in the comments section below telling me (and anyone else who reads this) about any favorite podcasts that you listen to and love.
