Important day today. Got my login details as a Judge for the European Podcast Awards for 2011. As winner of the “Personality” section for 2010, I know how this can affect the impact your podcast makes. I have to do this right.
I have 16 podcasts to listen to (4 shortlisted in each category of Personality, Business, Non-Profit and Professional) and make my recommendations, along with the other judges from such places as soundcloud and audioboo, as well as other podcasters.
Wish me luck!
Justin Wayne, one of my fellow podcasters from AMP and MIUK has written a report for his college on the future of podcasting. He’s based it on figures from a number of podcasts, including my own, and has included soundbytes from Rodrigo de Sa, from the Azores.
Both Justin and Rodrigo actively broadcast live in streamed shows, and, of course, I don’t, so we have different opionions, but it’s interesting to see what the figures show: both downloading and streaming are on the increase. New media (if it still is “new” of course) is alive and well.
