One of the guys who is kicking major ass in the podcasting world is Todd Cochrane. Not only does Todd run the very popular GEEK NEWS CENTRAL podcast, but he also is the main dude behind the TECHPODCASTS directory. He lives in Hawaii with his family and is a busy guy. I thought that the 12 month anniversary of podcasting would be a good time to pull together some of the guys who are trying to build a business out of it (eg Todd, Adam Curry and Evan Williams) onto the show so we could all talk about where we think it is and where it’s going. Todd was the only guy who replied to the email and so… he’s on the show!

Someone asked if this was “sleeping with the enemy” and I really don’t think of guys like Todd as “the enemy”. Competition? Sure. But I wish him and his crew nothing but success. A rising tide carries all ships. Podcasting is going to be big and there will be room for all of us to have some fun and make a few bucks.

This is also the first show I recorded using the new SKYLOOK tool. I recommend you check it out. It’s an OUTLOOK toolbar that manages Skype and records Skype calls. Check it out.

Hope you like the show.
