Join The NYC Podcast Community

I'm working on something new over at http://community.podcastnyc.net and I'd like to invite folks to join, contribute and provide feedback. This new platform will allow for enhanced discussion and learning as well as providing a more robust interface for people to connect with podcasters. Musicians and podcast consumers are welcome and we'll be adding functionality to address the needs of the different segments of the podcast community.

I look foward to seeing you there.

Transit Strike Podcast

I've set up a temporary podcast over at http://www.glitchnyc.com/TransitStrikePodcast to cover the news surrounding the strike and to collect interviews with union picketers, commuters, scabs, cabs, and more.

"Making sense of a complicated situation, one conversation at a time"

Feel free to send stories, rants, and audio feedback to
TransitStrikePodcast@glitchnyc.com

We'll still be doing the GlitchCast, but I wanted to set up this podcast to handle the stream of "talk" content outside of our normal indie music format.

The NYC Event Last Night


Thanks to those who came out to the Big Contact Event at Tonic last night in NYC. We packed the house. I just added some podcasters' shows to http://www.bigcontact.com/events. Visit the site to listen to the bands as well as some of the podcasters' shows who were in attendance. I'm sure I missed some folks. If so email me at events@bigcontact.com.

We'll be doing more shows in 2006. Drop me a line if you have some good ideas.

Thanks again,
Nat

More info


Hey, Nat here from Big Contact, The Feed Player, and Hellthy Entertainment. Rob and I had always talked about a podcast gathering where musicians and podcasters could gather and rub shoulders. Regrettably Rob will be out of town the day of this event but hopefully others will be able to come.

I wanted to invite all podcasters, videocasters, mp3 bloggers, musicians, & music lovers to the first ever Big Contact Event celebrating The Deli Magazine's 1st Birthday. This event is at Tonic Dec 6th, 2005 in the lower east side of Manhattan, NYC.

There will be free food, dj spinning NYC-only music, subway musicians, and great live bands including Say Hey Record's, and friends of mine, The Occasion.

I've also made sure the bands that are playing have agreed to let you use their music for your shows and also will make themselves available for interviews. You can listen and find everything at www.bigcontact.com/events.

And I also want to help promote those who will be attending. If you're attending and playing some of this music in your show I want to highlight your show on the site and podcast. So email me at events@bigcontact.com if so.

Portable Media and Podcast Expo

It's coming up in less than two weeks. The Portable Media and Podcast Expo that is. And there will be a healthy contingent of NYC Pod Squadders on hand. Rob from Podcast NYC will be there. So will Jerry Cahill of The Cystic Fibrosis Podcast. Frank from The Overnightscape and Jim from MadPod will be on the same Jet Blue flight along with Gregory Galant from Venture Voice. Podsafe Music star Brother Love is heading out on Jet Blue as well. Mike Dunn of Nomadic Audio is speaking on a panel during the conference. Finally, Jason from GothamCast recently announced that he's making it out as well. Suffice it to say that NYC will be well represented in Ontario. Now we've got to figure out when and where we all link up while out there for the next NYC Pod Squad podcast.

Come Down To The White Horse -- UPDATE

And hang out with a group of folks interested in blogging/podcasting/social media. The BlogOn 2005 social media event starts on October 17th. So on October 16th, David Parmet, Mike Dunn and Rob Safuto are organizing an open gathering or "Geek Dinner" in honor of the event. We expect a good mix of bloggers, podcasters and other social media types. Cameron Reilly of The Podcast Network will be on hand from Australia enjoying our NYC hospitality.

Here are the details:

When - Sunday, October 16th @ 5:00 PM
Where - The White Horse Tavern, at the corner of Hudson and 11th Sts in Greenwich Village
RSVP - If you plan on attending it's appreciated. You can RSVP in the comments of this post, via email or over at David's post here.

We look forward to seeing you there.

***UPDATE***

We're moving the party to a place a block north of The White Horse for logistical reasons. The new (and final I promise) spot is a place called Dublin 6. It has a great back room that can seat 40 people pretty easily. Time and date have not changed.

A few of the positive RSVPs from out of town are: Cameron Reilly, Jeremy Pepper, Michael Geoghegan, Jason Korman, Shel Israel and more...

We look forward to seeing you there.
