…or something to that effect.
We wanted to do something special for the 6th (!) anniversary of the Canadian Podcast Buffet, and Mark came up with this great idea around the same time, so we put them together to get “The Canadian National Day of Podcasting”.
What is it? Well, it’s basically an excuse to get a show out there for shows that are umm, let’s say.. dormant
You can hear us discuss the details on episode 166 of the Buffet, but here’s basically what it boils down to:
- December 1st 2010!
- Put out a show!
- dormant? retired? doesn’t matter – do it!
- Don’t invent anything, just do a show like you used to
- Reach out to old producers, get them in on it
- Listen to us argue over the details
- Just put out a show!
Seems like a cool thing, eh ? For a few days in December, it’ll feel like days gone by in podcasting. Several podcasters have already told us they’re up for it, and I know I’ll try to put episodes of my sleeping shows out on that day as well.
If at any point you did a show, do one for December 1st (2010). You don’t need to invent anything, do it in the style of your old episodes. Don’t cheap out and do a clip show! You don’t even need to acknowledge that you’re doing it because of the “The Canadian National Day of Podcasting” ™, just put out a show and email us at the buffet and we’ll let people know about it.
Why do this? Because it’s fun, we’ll all have a smile, life is short, and soon you will die. You need other reasons?
