This week’s podcast roundup is going to start with the long ones and progress to the short ones this time around, but first, a couple of places where I’ve talked about the Alberta Podcast Network. I had a chance to be on the What It Is podcast, along with Eva Foote and Mari Chartier. And I was on stage with Ben Yendall and Trina Shessel talking about podcast communities.
You can hear more about the network at our next Edmonton Podcasting Meetup on May 28 at Variant Edition. OK, that’s enough of me. Let’s go to the movies.
