On the Pod with Nicole Simon

Listen in as Cameron and I (the “I” i am referring to would be me…Mick 🙂 have a chat with the famous female German blogger and podcaster…Nicole Simon.

Nicole talks to us about writing a blog and making a podcast in both German and English and what sort of material is available in both of these mediums in Germany and the EU. We also talk with her about what its like being a female podcaster, whats a good length for podcasts, the iPod Squish and the Apple community, the German response to the Prince Harry dress-up party photos, the pubsub linkrank of royalty and a host of other things.

Oh yeah.. i nearly forgot…I also get ganged up on by both Cameron and Nicole…hmmm…get over it guys…i am the “code monkey” (in Cameron’s own words) and therefore i control the vertical, the horizontal and the bandwidth 😉

We do apologise for the quality of the show as it occasionally drops in and out…the Skype traffic that day was pretty high… 🙁

Buy a piece of podcasting history at eBay…

eBay + DEMO@15 = :)

You have the opportunity to be the Primary Sponsor of the Special DEMO@15 Edition of the G’Day World podcast by bidding for it at our eBay auction.

From February 13 – 15, 2005, Cameron Reilly, co-founder and co-host of the infamous G’Day World podcast will be attending the DEMO conference () in Scottsdale, Arizona.

While he’s there he will be trying to interview everyone he can get his grubby little hands on. The G’Day World shows that come out of the trip will be groundbreaking, historic and maybe even interesting.

Imagine Cameron saying, at the beginning of each show, “this historic episode of the Special DEMO@15 Edition of G’Day World is brought to you by our bloody good mates at **INSERT YOUR COMPANY NAME HERE**. They wanted me to tell you that their **INSERT YOUR PRODUCT NAME HERE** is pretty kickass and you should rush out and buy one today before you’re neighbour does and laughs at you for being sooo, like, totally June 2004.” All its will take for your company to be part of this, is to be the winning bidder on the auction.

Who listens to G’Day World? Everyone who counts. We’ve got over 5000 people from around the world downloading each show. We don’t know who they all are, but we do know that many of them are movers and shakers in the IT & business world. Bloggers. CEOs. CIOs. PR gurus. Software evangelists. Want to get your message out to them in an innovative way?


The highest bidder wins the Primary Sponsorship. Losers (and don’t kid yourself, if you don’t win, you are a loser, not “the leader of the people who didn’t win”) will get a chance to be secondary sponsors of the Special DEMO@15 Edition.

Well we don’t know, or we wouldn’t have put it up for auction. Of course, we could carry on with a lot of “the value of the earlobes” discussion, and maybe you’d buy it, maybe you wouldn’t, but we’d rather YOU tell US how much you think it’s worth.

It depends on how many interviews we get lined up, but we promise to do at LEAST two shows from there and no more than forty-seven. Somewhere in between.

Well that’s our business, but since you asked so nicely? we might use it to visit NY and Seattle and do some additional interviews with movers and shakers? we might use it to book a hotel room in Scottsdale Arizona so we don’t end up sleeping on the sidewalk and getting molested by the local constabulary? we might contribute it to a needy cause? but what’s more needy that funding the continued growth of good podcasts for your ears?

So start bidding and may the highest bidder win. Oh yeah, I guess that’s how this auction thing works, right?

On the Pod with Jeremy Wright

This is a podcast we have been trying to do for quite a while…listen in to this “On the Pod” episode and hear us interview the busiest little blogger around and a man that does a hell of a lot for the business blogging “cause”…Jeremy Wright.

Jeremy is the guy that sold his blog, ensight.org, for cash “ages ago”, he put his blogging services and knowledge up for auction at eBay, he started Inside Blogging, one of the first blogging consultancy companies around with Darren Barefoot, he set up the Business Blogging Awards (with Darren), he is involved in a few books being published and…he lost his job because of his blogging…to name a few things.

We cover all of this stuff in this interview and we go into quite a bit of detail about a lot of stuff including his sacking. If your a fan of Jeremy’s…don’t miss this opportunity to hear him chat to us for nearly an hour.
