Next week Richard Brewer-Hay, PodShow’s Senior Director of Talent Relations, is coming to the UK for some meetings in London and is clearing up his calendar on Wednesday, August 2 to meet with talented individuals such as yourselves for possible PodShow programming consideration. This is a terrific opportunity to get some real exposure on the premier online social media network.
Yes, I’m going and yes, I’ve filled out the little questionnaire that accompanied this post on Britcaster. However evil you think Podshow might be, there’s no denying that at the moment they’ve definitely got the most potential of any company to bring Podcasting to the forefront and enable it to graduate from being something limited to us geeks.
I’ve had varying degrees of thought of what Podshow is all about for many months now. The Podsafe Music Network is attracting a lot of quality artists, some bigger than the independents that music podcasters like myself play week in, week out and having a company with someone like Adam Curry in a high position will always attract attention, good or bad
So before any of you accuse me of selling out/selling my soul to the devil/sleeping with the enemy/all three in some kind of deranged Tarrantino-esque orgy think about what I’m trying to achieve;
- To bring the independent music I play to thousands, not hundreds of listeners every week.
- Raise the overall awareness of people who go to see said independent bands at gigs, by introducing them to podcast i.e PodFest.
- Make a bit of money along the way.
If PodShow (or any company, come to think of it) can allow me to do that, what’s the harm in talking to them?
