Over the past few weeks, several of my peers in the podcasting community have reached the milestone of 100 shows. Congratulations to Mark and Bob at the Canadian Podcast Buffet, Isabelle and Dave at Broca’s Area, Mitch Joel at Six Pixels of Separation, and Javier, Gerard and the crew at the Hands and Feet Show. The Bob and AJ show is at show 98 and should be able to release their 100th show before Podcasters Across Borders in June.
My current episode of For the Sake of the Song with Kyle Heimann from Popple is Episode 50. I was feeling a little down that it will be some time before I reach my 100th episode, then I started doing soime math. I currently have 6 more shows ‘in the can’ to be released between now and the end of June. With podcast extras, and other special episodes I have 65 produced shows on my For the Sake of the Song site. I also produced 25 audio podcasts for my Lenten multimedia project, 40 Days of Catholic Media on my Catholic Canadian site. We produced 14 episodes of the Podcamp Toronto Podcast this winter. My recording of my brother in law, Drew Beatty’s podcast novel, White Trash Land has 23 sections. Since October 2006, I have hosted about 20 episodes of the Librivox Community Podcast. I have also completed 89 sections of public domain books and poetry for Librivox. There are probably a couple special one-off projects with groups like Twisted pines that I’m overlooking as well.
Just a sec while I do the math here.
65 plus 25– carry the one, add 14 plus 23, then 20 more add 89 equals…
236 audio programs that I have produced in the last 18 months or so.
(give or take a few)
Well none of my projects is currently near the century mark, I do believe I’m amassing a fair body of work.
Enough of blowing my own horn. I now return you to the regularly scheduled conversations with some wonderful songwriters.
