The Podcast Expo

We’re getting ready to head off to the Podcast and New Media Expo. We’ll be sure to grab some audio and share some of the experience with you. We’re very excited about the possibility of winning the Best Produced Podcast award, and are simply amazed that we made the final nominations (you guys are the BEST!)

Here’s a link to the awards event if you’d like to watch LIVE:

Friday September 28th. Starting a Little after 4pm (Pacific)

Expo

Podcast Alley (a podcast listing) currently lists 35,213 podcasts from around the world. To have been nominated as one of the top 10 of the Best Produced, to be ranked #15 overall and #1 in the Technology category for September is just unbelievable … all because of YOU cachers out there!!!

Go Get ‘em!!!

Last Chance: The PodCacher GeoCoin

This is your LAST CHANCE to get your hands on the 2007 PodCacher Polished Nickel GeoCoin!
We are currently taking pre-orders for a 2nd and FINAL order (“The Last Wave”). DEADLINE for placing your order is September 23. Order yours now!

This a fund raiser for the PodCacher Podcast. If you enjoy the content that we provide for you on the weekly audio show, this website, or the PodCacher forums, this would be a great way to help support our efforts (and get a nice, highly-sought GeoCoin to boot!).

Google Issues

Google is not (currently) accessible from our location. We have contacted our local provider and they are clearly aware of the issue. It seems to be isolated to the Google domain. We are able to reach other sites (podcacher forums, facebook, etc.) as we would normally. The issue: ALL of our notes / links / storyboard etc. for our shows are kept organized in a Google app (Notebook). If we can’t access our information in time, we may have to postpone creating a show. This also means that we can’t access our gmail. No access to email, recent hotline call-ins or coin orders. Bummer.

Go here to discuss this issue.

Finding free WiFi

Update: We drove several miles to a free WiFi location with our laptop and are online with Google! We’re going to download all the material we need, convert it to a usable document, then head on back home. The show must go on!!!

PodCacher nominated for “Best Produced”!

We are excited to announce that PodCacher has been nominated for a 2007 Podcast Award in the category of Best Produced Podcast. A huge thanks goes out to all of you who nominated us for this category. This is a fantastic opportunity for great exposure for the PodCacher podcast and for Geocaching.

Winners will be chosen based on votes received, so we are asking for your help! Voting is open NOW until August 11. Votes can be made each day (every 24 hours) at www.PodcastAwards.com during the voting period. Please vote as often as you can – and tell your friends and family! Email your caching friends and post in your local forums and let them know that we have this opportunity to have a GEOCACHING Podcast recognized.

PodCacher Travels

We’re off to Atlanta! We’ll be seeing sights, geocaching and recording audio. We’ll bring back stories and share our travel-caching experiences with you. For now you’re welcome to follow along with us via a picture blog that we’ve set up just for our travels. Check back often – we’ll try to update our adventures each day, if we can.

Show 106 Coming Soon…

Hey Everyone – We are back from an amazing trip to Raleigh, NC for GeoWoodstock5 and we are busy creating a show for you. We got home at 2:00am so we weren’t able to get the show out last night. Thanks for your patience. We have some awesome audio and a great show planned for you!!

 

12 of 12 and Trail Mix

This Saturday is the 12th day of the month. For those of you who have been following this show you know that on every 12th day of each month we take a bunch of pictures and then post 12 that represent our day. Since the 12th day of each month will randomly fall on different days of the week, this is a nice way to get a “real” snapshot of what a typical day might look like. Many of our listeners have also shared and I think it’s cool to take a peek into each other’s lives. Kinda makes this big ol’ world seem a lot less big.

Here’s a link to a forum thread about the 12 of 12: Forum Discussion

Upcoming on this Monday’s show: We’ve got a tasty, savory show planned! Just because it’s made up of a bunch of small pieces doesn’t mean this show won’t be nutritious and delicious! Come on by and grab a byte on Monday! :)

Have a GREAT weekend and …

Go Get ‘em!!!

16,000 Things to Do With GPS

Wired is a magazine that I read. I get the paper-magazine version in my snail-mailbox. I’ll also sometimes check up on their online postings as well. In case you’ve never heard of it, it’s a pop culture, current event, techie, gadgety, wide-variety publication. It’s how I first heard about podcasting.

They recently posted an article about the use of the GPS to do the Degree Confluence Project. (Something we discussed in Show #36).

Have any of you ever found a Confluence?

Stop by the PodCacher Forums and let us know.

Have a Great Weekend and Go Get ‘em!!!
