Matthew Wayne Selznick is one of the pioneers in podcasting and Social Media. His podcast novel, Brave Men Run, which was first released in November 2005, it was the first work of fiction to be released simultaneously as a podcast, downloadable ebook, and for purchase as a print-on-demand book. Over the last 3 years, he has had several podcasts. He is well known as an advocate of the DIY (Do It Yourself) philosophy of creativity. He was involved with Podiobooks.com in its early stages and now is a community developer at Mahalo.com.

Podcasters Across Borders was in Kingston last weekend. On Saturday evening, we took a lovely boat cruise around Kingston complete with an open mic for all the podcasting musicians. This show features highlights from that cruise and includes performances by myself, Mark Blevis, Bob Goyetche, Chris Brogan, Jay Moonah, Danielle Lennon, Bob Ledrew, John Meadows. My daughter proved that she was the youngest podcaster on the boat by interviewing people using the video feature on her camera. Her interviewees included myself, George Motoc, Andrea Ross and Chris Brogan.

Enjoy a slice of PAB.

After two years in the podcasting community it has become clear to me that podcasters are very concerned about the freedom to communicate that new media gives us.  As a community we are also early adopters and VERY adept at trying and using social media tools.

The power of the community has been seen at Podcamp Philadelphia with the coining of the term bacn for email you want, but do not want to be overwhelmed with.  Over the course of a couple hours, the idea was coined and viral means of disemminating the message and how to deal with bacn were successfully deployed.

At Podcamp Boston, the silly meme of LOLsaurs was conceived, launched and taken to the front page of Digg in less than 18 hours.

Initiatives like the Frozen Pea Fund, and Dave Fleet’s Social Media Marathon demonstrate that the podcasting community is deeply socially aware and responsive to issues outside the community.

With Podcasters across borders just a week away, I’m wondering how we can use the collective energy and intelligence of the podcasting community to create some kind of a viral fuss around stopping Bill C-61 which will bring American copyright craziness to Canada?   Any ideas?

Ashley Condon, Douglas John Cameron

Once a month, George Scott and Jason Cliche host a Songwriter’s Showcase at the beautiful Gibson Centre in Alliston, Ontario. I drove the family down on March 2 for a wonderful afternoon of original music featuring Ashley Condon and Douglas John Cameron. I sat down with Ashley for an interview after the show. Ashley Condon was raised in PEI and now lives in Guelph, Ontario. This episode is a little unusual because I use live footage from the concert, interspersed with our interview. I also hope to feature Douglas John Cameron on an upcoming episode.
