This presentation from Tom Webster of Edison Research gives us vital information about how the world of Podcasting is growing each year and how the mainstream are becoming listeners due to changes in technology.
Please take the time to listen to the presentation and gain insight into why the time to be podcasting is now.
The presentation is approximately 60 minutes long, and may be viewed or downloaded below. Alternately, you can download the data slides (only) for the The Podcast Consumer from Edison Research.
Once upon a time, there was a little event that two guys started in Boston. Named after BarCamp, they called it PodCamp and expected 50 people to show up. Instead 300 people came and started a movement. Today, PodCamps have occurred on every continent except Antarctica and have helped thousands of people around the world learn, share, and grow their new media skills.
This year, the organizers of PodCamps Boston, NH, and Philly are trying something new: PodCamp East. We recognize that times call for a little more thrifty approach to attending conferences, so rather than litter the East Coast with lots of events, we're bringing together 3 PodCamps into one.
Come join us on September 28, 2012 and learn, share, and grow your new media skills at PodCamp East!

Hotel and Travel Information
The fantastic team at the Greater Wilmington Convention and Visitor’s Bureau have been a huge help in planning Podcamp East. They have spoken with local businesses, hotels and even AMTRAK to help up secure good rates for out of town visitors.
For those taking the train to Podcamp, the best hotel is The Sheraton Suites located on Delaware Avenue in the heart of Wilmington. You will need to call the Sheraton and ask for the Podcamp East rate; Tara Kucharski is our contact there. The rate is under $100 a night.
