NEWS: The Podcast & Portable Media Expo Coming Soon (September 29-30)

Last year (Nov. 10-12, 2005) I attended the first Portable Media Expo & Podcasting Conference (Now called the Podcast & Portable Media Expo) in Ontario, California. It was amazing. I met so many fantastic people from the world of podcasting, music and media, including …prepare for some name dropping…Chris Breen, Laura Burstein, Michael Butler, C.C. Chapman, Todd Cochrane, Paul Colligan, Adam Curry, Paul Figgiani, Dave Hamilton, Jeremy Horwitz, Mark Hunter, Leo Laporte, David Lawrence, Dennis Lloyd, Brother Love, Franklin McMahon, Ken Ray, Scott Sheppard, Phil Torrone, Rob Walsh, Ben Williams and many, many more. Here’s a link to an audio podcast report I did about the show for one of my favorite podcasts: MacVoices, hosted by Chuck Joiner,

The show was voted Best New Show of 2005 by Expo Magazine. Here’s a link to the main show page: Also, PodcastAcademy 4 looks to be a fantastic full-day event, held the day before the Expo begins (Thursday, September 28). Here’s a link to the page that describes it. Below is an audio slideshow from 2005 show (it includes photos from the Podcast Academy and the Portable Media Expo). I hope to see you in Ontario, California at the end of September.
