For my Podcamp Toronto talk, “I Quit- Maybe” today, I wanted to discuss the phenomenon of Podfading and how the experience of podcasting changes for people who have been doing it for a number of years.  I did not have a slide deck or even a clear agenda.  I did have just a few notes on a mind map prepared last night.  One of the participants asked me to post them so here they are.

 

The talk developed into a wide ranging discussion among several veteran Canadian podcasters including Bob Goyetche, Scarborough Dude, Dave Delaney, Bill Deys, Will Spaetzel, Ninja, Sylvain Grandmaison and several others.  I recorded the session and I may post it at a later date.
