You are herepodcaster
Now in my tenth year of being a podcaster, it is by no means surprising that one of the topics I’m asked about over and over again is how to start podcasting. I always recommend starting off with the minimum essentials and then slowly building up your gear as you go along. In other words, don’t make a huge investment in hardware and software initially. You can always upgrade and enhance your set up as you go along. This way, if you find it is something that isn’t for you or perhaps you simply don’t have the time you thought you would had when you first decided on doing it, you can stop without having invested too much money into it.

Last year we welcomed Blogworld and New Media Expo to New York with its first conference set in the Big Apple. Where does the time go? It's back again and once again it is at the Jacob Javitts Center in Manhattan this time in June (the 5th-7th 2012).
At last year's event, I met several listeners as well as fellow podcasters and new media producers there. If you are going this year, be sure to say hi if you spot me there. Should you attend? Here's a piece I wrote a few years ago, but it still applies today: 5 Reasons to go to Blogworld & New Media Expo.
If you hurry, you can still get the early bird discount on admission (ending tonight). Save an additional 10% NOW on your Early Bird Blog World New York 2012 registration with the code "BWAPVIP10"! Register now to save!
I was very excited to learn that BlogWorld and New Media Expo are doing their first east coast event this May when they announced it a few weeks ago. Previous Blogworld & New Media Expo events took place in Las Vegas, NV. For once I will now be able to attend a expo without having to fly there (I don't mind the actual flying, it is everything else that is part of the commercial airline experience I could do without).
Although the dates are quickly approaching, you can still save 15% off your Thursday, weekend, or full access passes for this year's Blogworld and New Media Expo (2010) using the special link below.
Although written for last year's expo, the reasons are still valid for this year, check out "5 Reasons To Go Blogworld & New Media Expo…".

After participating in last year's Worldwide Photo Walk (WWPW), I contemplated leading a walk myself this year. Before I knew it, it was July already (the month of the walk). When I checked to see what walks were available locally to me this year and saw that there were none, I immediately scrambled organizing a walk myself. Once I had the details worked out, I proceeded to submit my application to lead the walk prior to the posted deadline only for their website to erroneous tell me that applications were no longer being accepted past their deadline and therefore would not allow me to submit it. There was no recourse either.

Next month is the Blogworld & New Media Expo 2009. October 15 - 17, 2009 is the first expo/confonrence after Blogworld merged with the New Media Expo. It is a trade show for anyone involved with new media. Be it podcasting, blogging, social media, vblogging, etc. there is something for you at the Blogworld & New Media Expo.
I attended last year for the New Media Expo 2008 in Las Vegas, NV and found it enlightening to be around like-minded individuals working in new media.
Always interested in technology, in early 2005 he started his own podcast, about everything and anything. This lead to involvement in various other shows, such as Rough, Ready and Raw and Doctor Who: Podshock. These days though, he prefers to invest his time podcasting solely about science fiction.
Ken Deep comes to podcasting from the traditional broadcasting medium. Having honed his skills in professional radio and television broadcasting, he applies the same vigor and enthusiasm to our podcasts.
He, along with Louis Trapani were there from the beginning of the Gallifreyan Embassy and helped to bring it to where it is today. His extensive knowledge of science fiction is evident in all our shows.
