The Bob Davis Podcasts Celebrates One Year. The one year anniversary of the new version of the podcasts is August fourth. July 5th 2009 is the fifth year anniversary of the original Bob Davis Podcast. Don’t get too excited, although there will be fireworks at the end of the podcast. In just one year, nearly a million podcasts have been served up at the rate of about a hundred thousand a month, three thousand a day. Thanks to the listeners, and the sponsors. A dinner discussion about the opportunities departing talk show hosts (locally) may mean for Bob Davis, provoked a wider discussion about why podcasting is better, more promising and more fun, than radio. Plus, why more and more quality talk hosts and radio people are jumping a sinking ship and starting their own podcasts. How has that changed Bob Davis, how are the podcasts different from radio, how a revolution in technology spurns a revolution in communication. In some ways, it’s the same revolution we’re seeing in American Politics, and the fading institutions of the old world. What happens when a podcaster runs out of printer paper on a Sunday night, just before he about to print his ream of the latest news, read it, and then comment on it? A discussion about what a ‘political news cleanse’ might sound like. Plus a few shout outs and a short talk about what being in business for yourself is all about. Sponsored by Baklund R&D.
