PodCamp DC & Church Podcasting

Through a local meetup group, I happened to find out about PodCamp – a group of bloggers, podcasters and other new media enthusiasts who come together in unlikely places to share and exchange their knowledge. I had the extreme fortune of attending the DC event this weekend and was blown away!


It was held at the Art Institute in Rosslyn, VA. Everyone there was SO willing to share their knowledge and expertise! I got a few tips and tricks on how to get a podcast going, met up with a few other folks who were also interested in new media for work and personal interests, and had a great presentation from a clearspring speaker – Justin Thorp, on sharing video/content across platforms (check his blog: Oatmeal Stout – http://drinkingoatmealstout.com/) Gotta love those widgets!

On top of all this, I’ve been inspired (and hopefully have a willing co-“victim”) to bring podcasting to my church – it’s been in the back of my head for awhile and i had planned it with one of the deacons until he retired and moved. Now, I want to get it going again…I think having downloads (and even charging per download) would help connect my church to the young adult community and have a revenue source for the church…

I had a great time – I can’t wait for the next DC event…I’ll def make sure to bring my laptop when I do!

  1. Thanks Justin, your talk was really good, especially hearing the discussions that it fostered. I got excited about possible solutions for work and personal/church projects, so I apologize for not introducing myself as we were letting out – that was so rude of me! (but so cool of you to follow up!)
    And I did later realize (after all that thinking died down) that I forgot to ask you a question about something you’d mentioned – a new media & government conference you’d been a part of? I wanted to hear more about that. Again, my profuse apologies and praises – did learn a lot at PodCamp and have recommended it to several friends and co-workers.
    Thanks for the link too – I promise next time to say thank you in person. 🙂
