Always Listening to Cameron Reilly, Australian Podcast Pioneer

caesar-augustus-album-art-300.jpg

*Explicit Language Warning* Cam has a colorful manner of speaking and I don't edit it down for this episode. Watch the little ears!*

Cameron Reilly, cohost of The Bullshit Filter, Life of Caesar and more, joins Joel to talk about his life in podcasting, and independent media which started in 2004. With claims to "fame" as the first Australian podcaster and the first person to use a recorded Skype call for a podcast in the world.

Cam is a straight shooter who spends most of his days shooting straight at Ray Harris, his cohost for Life of Caesar, BS Filter and other podcasts and projects across the interwebs.

If you like learning about the beginning of things, hearing about the future of podcasting or learning some of the inside workings of a popular podcasting empire from Down Under, this episode is perfect for you.

And subscribe to any of his podcasts by visiting: http://thepodcastnetwork.com

Yep. He's THE podcast network. That's another thing Cam was first at.

Always Listening to Jay “Pod Vader” Soderberg

FullSizeRender.jpg

Joel’s podcasting hero, Jay Pod Vader Soderberg, joins the podcast to talk about his career in media, radio, podcating and life in and out of companies like ESPN, Blog Talk Radio, Spreaker and more.

'Podcasts don't have a "middle" ... radio is nothing but "middle."'

 

Pod Vader was the backbone of ESPN’s launch into podcasting producing dozens of shows at once and featuring in many of them on-air as well as behind the scenes. At the top of his field and working for the biggest player in the space, he leapt out to help independent producers with Blog Talk Radio (now Voxnest) helping small shows, big shows and everything in between make money right away using dynamic advertising.

Starting the next phase of his career, we look over all of his jobs and experiences while speculating about what’s next in the podcast space. To hear from Jay regularly, find The Next FanUp podcast or follow him on Twitter at @TheRealPodVader

Picking up Hope at the Airport - My Podcast Movement 2018 Story

IMG_1770.PNG

Joel Sharpton, Chief Editing Officer for Pro Podcasting Services details his trip to and from Podcast Movement 2018 with the “point” coming in at around 15:00, so feel free to jump to the mushy part.

Thankful and mis-quoting Mark Twain, Joel “rambles on” to the point about Podcast Movement, airport hours and antiseptic eventually. Stick with this kid, he’s going places.
