Podcasting Presentation at the Oregonian Newspaper

I got back a little while ago from a presentation I was asked to do on podcasting for The Oregonian – the biggest newspaper in Oregon. Mike Francis, the paper’s military/international reporter (did I get that right, Mike?) came to the last Portland Podcasting meetup, where I did a demo of how I record and publish TinyPodcast. He emailed me a few days later, asking if I’d be interested in coming down and delivering the same demo to The Oregonian, and after a millisecond or two of consideration, I agreed. 🙂

Mike and the folks at the Oregonian were great – gracious, smart, and interested in podcasting, and how they can dive into this new medium. I talked for about 30 minutes, about the basics of podcasting, and answered the excellent questions that came from the group (there were probably 25-30 people in the conference room). Then, I spent the rest of the time doing the demo – recording and posting a short episode of TinyPodcast. Afterwards, Mike gave me a tour around the newsroom, which I caught on video, and will be posting soon.

I want to thank Mike for a great time and a great opportunity. Let’s stay in touch – I’m more than happy to help or answer any questions. I love this stuff! Can’t wait to see what kind of podcasts start appearing out of the folks who attended.

    Thanks again, Josh. Your presentation generated a good buzz, and people really appreciated your ability to communicate geek to a lay audience. Hope we can be early adopters, too.
