Read more about the history of Verbum Domini and help us to pay tribute to a podcasting pioneer!
While we're still on the topic of podcasting, I would like to acknowledge someone who has made a great impact in religious podcasting as well as in voice over.
Over the past couple of years, I've been able to get to know Brian Noe, a former lector in his parish, through email and his daily podcast, Verbum Domini, the oldest continuing Catholic podcast in existence, established two years ago around this very time.
In addition to working with Adam Curry's PodShow and being a member of Voices.com, Brian continued to deliver quality daily podcasts spreading the Good News while bringing the Bible into the homes of his listeners everyday, and in time added guest lectors to read the daily scripture readings in his place, including Jennifer Willits from the Rosary Army Podcast among others.
Dutch priest Father Roderick, founder of SQPN, announced this news in episode #255 of the Daily Breakfast, a variety show style podcast featuring a mix of news, movies, tv-series, videogames, history, health tips, inspiration, and science fiction that is accessible to Christians of all denominations as well as people of other faith backgrounds (if you like The Simpsons, you'll love this podcast).
In a recent interview, Brian revealed I'm very excited about the prospects for the program moving forward. I know that it will be in good hands at SQPN."
I want to thank Brian Noe personally for being such a trailblazer in this brave new world of podcasting and for ensuring the continuation of the Verbum Domini podcast by entrusting the preparation and production of Verbum Domini to the team at SQPN.
If you are involved with a podcast, please leave a comment. We'd love to hear about it and celebrate with you.
