UK Podcasters Conference

We started by briefly discussing #ukpod14 the UK Podcasters 2014 conference – which was awesome – and how the plans for a UK Podcasters 2015 conference are coming along. We’re in the final stages of viewing venues and checking out three different UK cities to find the right venue for the UK podcasting community. We’re excited and itching to tell you more.

National Podcast Day – 30th September 2014

Is this an international day of podcasting?

Izabela starts by discussing the name National Podcast Day and asks, “why is it not named as an International Podcast Day?”

We both fully support the idea of an international day for podcasters and have a chat about how it may expand further going forward. I throw my 2 cents in, then Izabela throws her 2 pennies in and we agree to disagree on the naming of the day. That is not the most important thing here for UK podcasters. What is important is that podcasters worldwide will unite to promote podcasting on an international level!
