Canadian100club-500 px final

I’ve been working for a couple months to produce a webpage of Canadian podcasts which have produced over 100 episodes. In the podcasting world, the 100th episode is considered a milestone.   Click here to go to the Canadian Podcast 100 Club.

Congratulations to the great folks who created 100 or more episodes of the  following 21 Canadian Podcasts.

Congratulations to the great people who have brought you all this great programs.

I have compiled the list using the amazing Castroller website. Castroller is a site that allows you to easily find, manage and share collections of podcasts. Check it out.  You can find all the Canadian Century Club Podcasts at http://castroller.com/channels/centuryclub .

You can import an OPML file of the whole set into your favorite podcatcher at http://castroller.com/channels/centuryclub/opml

If you have a podcast with over 100 episodes, feel free to add the Canadian Podcast 100 Club to your site with a link to http://www.ductapeguy.net/canadian-century-club/

Please let me know if there are other Canadian podcasts with more than 100 episodes which I have failed to add to this list.  I would be happy to add them.

  • Update: Somehow, the amazing lovehatethings blog and podcast slipped under the radar of my awareness.  My loss.   Anthony Marco is a blogging and podcast machine.  In a little over a year, he has posted about 500 articles and 104 podcasts about, technology, pop culture, music, social media, the copyfight, a pinch of sarcasm and a pound of rant.  Congratulations Anthony on reaching the your 100th episode.  I’m late to the party listening to your podcast but I’m hooked.


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.



Here’s a little roundup of my podcasting activity for 2007.

I have released 40 Episodes of For the Sake of the Song thus far and have about 9 ready to go in the upcoming weeks.

On the weekend of October 28, I was feeling sorry for myself that I wasn’t at Podcamp Boston 2 so I called several of my friends who were at Podcamp Boston and released about 4 Podcamp Boston Special Reports.

These reports evolved into a regular podcast for Podcamp Toronto with Connie Crosby. We have currently produced 6 Episodes of the Podcamp Toronto Podcast leading up to the event on February 23 and 24.

Podcamp Toronto February 23-24, 2008

I produced a Podcamp Toronto audio promo to use on your podcast

.

2007 Also saw the release of my recording of my brother-in-law, Drew Beatty’s novel, White Trash Land, on Podiobooks.com . It has done fairly well for Andrew there.

I’ve continued to record audiobooks with Librivox.org and I continue to be a semi-regular host for the Librivox Community Podcast. Here is a list of the 15 podcasts I hosted for Librivox in 2007.

I really consider being a Librivox volunteer and helping to produce the community podcast was my University of Podcasting. During the conversation we talk about current news around the Librivox community, as well as my other podcasts, For the Sake of the Song, and White Trash Land.
