On the Pod with Michael Pusateri

In this “On the Pod” episode we talk with Michael Pusateri, VP of Engineering at the Disney Channel.

I saw Michael at the 2004 O’Reilly’s eTech conference when he presented a great session on how the Disney Channel started using blogs, Wiki’s and RSS in his department close to two years ago. This is a great interview and it stil amazes me that an organisation as large as Disney was using this sort of technology that long ago in a real world situation.

We also touch on a few other areas that Michael has a personal interest in like MMORPG’s, Geocaching and Dr Pepper cans.

As usual…this is another “On the Pod” you don’t want to miss if you are trying to get blogs, wiki’s and RSS into your organisation.

On the Pod with Michael Geoghegan

We thought we would look inward into the world of podcasting for our next guest..and we came up with Michael Geoghegan.

Michael is the man behind Reel Reviews…one of the most popular podcasts out in the wild and is all about the main passion of its host…movies.

We chat to Michael about his love for films, how he got into podcasting, the 900 DVD’s in his basement, how he structures his podcasts, Orson Wells, Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil, The Searchers, Ford-Kurosawa-Leoni-Tarantino, Chopper, De Nero, Sleep Away Camp, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Show Girls and what he thinks of Cam’s top 10.

On the Pod with Darren Barefoot

I have had to skip a couple of shows to get this interview out that we did with Canadian blogger, Darren Barefoot, due to the fact that we touch on Northern Voice conference during the interview, and the conference is on this week 🙂

Darren does a heap of stuff…he works for Capulet Communications during the day, he started up Inside Blogging with Jeremy Wright, he was the other blogger that auctioned himself at eBay and importantly and he is one of the organisers of Northern Voice which is Canada’s first blogging conference that is being held in Vancouver on the 19th of February this year.

During this interview, we touch on Northern Voice and blogging conferences in general, gatherings of geeks, Nooked, RSS and the “process” at Inside Blogging.

Apologies for the quality in this one, but sometime Skype connections just don’t cut it 🙁

Darren’s one of the good guys out in the blogosphere so subscribe to our feed or just download the mp3…especially if you are heading up to the Conference.
