Cross-posted from For Immediate Release, the new podcast weblog by Shel Holtz and I:
Starting in January, Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz - two communicators who think they have something to say that you might find worth listening to - start their weekly podcasts. Shel's in Concord, California, and Neville's in Amsterdam in The Netherlands.
We'll bring a balanced view on what's going on in the US and Europe in communication, technology and other relevant topics.
We'll be having weekly conversations via Skype and posting the resulting MP3 recording on this podcast blog. You will be able to get the podcasts from our RSS feed or download them directly from here. Either way, it will be simple for you to get them.
What will we talk about in our weekly podcasts? What will be the format for our conversations?
Well, why not listen to our pre-launch podcast we recorded today - that will give you a good idea of what to expect when we fully launch next month.
We hope you'll find our conversations interesting and useful. We'd like to know what you think. Let us know if you have a specific topic you'd like us to discuss.
So look out for the first podcast in early January.
Meanwhile, our best wishes for a peaceful Christmas and New Year!
Shel and I have spent the past few weeks planning this. Full credit to Shel for working hard at figuring out how to record our conversations via Skype. Lots of tests with this last week and, in our pre-launch test recording this afternoon, it all worked perfectly.
Why a podcast? Well, we firmly believe that channels like this will play a significant role in organizational communication. We want to demonstrate the use of this digital audio channel as a communication tool to convey commentary and opinion is new and interesting ways.
But I'm getting ahead of myself here - we'll be discussing such things in our weekly podcasts!
If you have any comments or suggestions about our podcasts, let us know. Leave a comment here or at For Immediate Release.
