NYC Pod Squad Podcast #1

It was a great event held over at The Triple Crown Restaurant and Ale House on 7th Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets in New York City. There was a very lively crowd due to the Oasis concert at Madison Square Garden, which is just a few blocks north of the bar.

In this podcast you'll be introduced to some members of the group, find out about their podcasts and hear some great podsafe music. Send questions, comments, complaints, etc. to

The Intent of This Cooperative

I just wanted to take a moment to clarify the group's position on commercialism and podcasting. I don't think that this group stands against the commercialization of podcasting. And by commercialization I mean someone who wants to sell their content or otherwise make money from podcasting. If someone can create quality content and use that content to honestly earn a few dollars then that's fine.

We are, however, a group of independent podcasters. This means that we haven't signed contracts with corporations (like PodShow) in exchange for our podcasts. We also don't have large amounts of money for marketing and promotion. So independent podcasters need to join together in order to pool our resources. By taking this action we will prevent highly funded podcasts from dominating the market and furthur ensure that people will continue to see independent podcasting as a viable option.

We welcome all active podcasters from the NYC metro area to join our group. You can send an email the if you're interested in being a part of the group.
