Hey everyone, Cliff Ravenscraft here. Earlier this month, I accepted an offer to join the BlogWorld & New Media Expo team to help build an amazing Podcasting Track at the conference for the podcasting community.
I want to welcome you to the very first episode of The Podcast Report, a podcast devoted to the Podcasting Track of BlogWorld & New Media Expo. I thought the best way to promote the podcasting track for this conference would be through a podcast devoted to it. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
Over the past several weeks, I have been on the phone, or Skype, with no less than 60 individual podcasters. I’ve heard many stories about the experiences people have had with the previous Podcasting Expo put on by the Bourquin Brothers. Many have also shared their thoughts on how things have gone since BlogWorld & New Media Expo purchased the rights of that conference.
In this inaugural episode of The Podcast Report, I interview Rick Calvert, CEO & Co-Founder of BlogWorld & New Media Expo. The purpose is to bring everyone up to speed on the history of the podcasting community and it’s industry conference. Below, I have listed some of the things that Rick and I discussed in this episode.
- How did BlogWorld & New Media Expo get started?
- History of the Bourquin Brothers Podcast Expo.
- How and why BlogWorld purchased the Podcast Expo.
- The rocky history of the Podcasting Track at BlogWorld & New Media Expo.
- The debate over the term “Podcasting.”
- The commitment to the Podcasting Community moving forward!
- Major Announcement: Name Change Coming To BlogWorld!!!!
Future episodes of this podcast will help you get a feel for the type of sessions that are coming to #BWENY and I plan to produce an episode of The Podcast Report each week until the conference this June.
I hope that you enjoy this podcast, that you will subscribe to it, and that you will tell every podcaster you know about it. Please leave me any comments or feedback that you have in the comments section below! I hope to see you at the event!
