The Future of Podcasting And Hosting Over 800 Episodes

Posted by

Your digital media catch-up is right here.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes:

Debbie Millman On Why Design (And Podcasting) Matters – This Week’s Six Pixels of Separation Podcast – Episode #800.

I just published my 800th episode on Sunday of my podcast, Six Pixels of Separation (a pretty serious milestone). My guest was Debbie Millman who hosts the Design Matters podcast (which has actually been going on longer than my show!). Still, Six Pixels of Separation is the longest running business podcast in the world (I believe?). I started in May of 2006. So.. over 15 years… every Sunday without fail. How is podcasting different from radio? How has podcasting evolved? How much bigger can it get? Also, my other podcast, Groove – The No Treble Podcast, also came out this week. Episode #83 (it’s a monthly show – so  close to seven years on that one) and this month I hosted Anthrax bassist, Frank Bello. With Groove, I am trying to build the largest oral history of bass players. I’m a big fan of the podcast movement. 

What do you think about podcasting?

App of the Week: Castbox – my preferred way of listening to podcasts and other digital audio formats.

Once the segment goes live on Jack 103, I will post it here for you to listen in, learn, share and engage….
