Toronto Podcasters Meetup

Tod Maffin is the coolest podcasting / radio guy in Canada!

On Tuesday December 13th, we had the opportunity to attend the Great Canadian Podcasters Meetup in Toronto, Canada. There were podcasters, producers, radio, television personalities, and more, all looking to build a solid community during the early adoption phase of podcasting into the mainstream Canadian culture.

Independent audio podcasters and video podcasters were present, many of whom were quite colourful and came prepared with business cards. Round table discussions with Tod Maffin of the CBC and fellow Canadian podcasting movers and shakers, impromptu interviews, and jovial hand shaking set the tone for an evening of social networking at Casey's Restaurant.

It was interesting to note that many of the podcasting folk knew who we were and some were even hoping to snag us for a chat at the meetup. I would have to say that one of the most memorable moments for me was meeting one of our voice talents, Ryan Wiseman. Because we run our business online (and are also based out of London, ON - not a large metropolitan centre like Toronto), it's difficult for us to meet the majority of our talents and clients. After visiting Toronto, our appetites have be whetted to return to the metropolis to experience, meet and greet more of our talents and business partners.

One week has passed since that meetup, but the memories and contacts made at the gathering are still fresh in our minds (and in our email boxes / iTunes!).

Oh, one more thing... Don't forget to checkout the CBC radio podcasts at the CBC website! http://www.cbc.ca/podcasting

Bye for now,
