I Have The Podcasting Bug

podcastingWorking on Mashable Conversations with Mark Hopkins has gotten to me, but in a good way.

I have toyed with the idea of adding a weekly podcast/vlog to the site for a very long time now because I like the freedom it gives you to do much more in-depth pieces without having to write enormous pieces.  People are much more likely to listen to you talk for 10 minutes instead of reading a blog post for 10 minutes.

So, with the experience I’ve gained from doing the Mashable show, I am going to launch a weekly podcast of my own next week.  I actually have a tenative arrangement to interview someone from a gadget company for my first episode, so that one is set, but after that, it will be up to you, dear readers, what I talk about.

Do you want to hear me discuss movies?  Technology?  The Web?  Television?  Would you prefer a mixed format?  It could even be something entirely new, but it all depends on you to tell me what you would like to hear, at least in these early stages.

I will be embedding each episode here on the blog, and once the first episode is up, I will also be attemtping to get it added to iTunes for subscriptions.  I also need to come up with a name for it as I don’t think “ Podcast” or “Sean Rants Abotu Stuff” will work real well.  So, please, leave some comments and let me know what you would like to hear out of this!  I am very excited about finally giving this a go, but I can’t do it would all of you!

    Of course, the little tech geek I am loves when you talk about technology, but I absolutely adore your movie reviews and thoughts on films in production. Remember Transformers? That was so entertaining to read for me. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the podcasts.

  • Jenn – I am fully up on Transformers 2, but I am trying to keep myself in check unlike last time. Plot details are non-existent, but I have seen a lot of info on new vehicles (I know at least three confirmed new vehicle modes for Autobots and Decepticons), but just trying to keep my cool this time ;)
