200: The 2nd Canadian National Day of Podcasting

canada

Here’s our entry to CDNOP! Would be strange if we didn’t get something out, eh?

These are bullets! :

  • If we actually had prepared, or even
  • had show notes for you, these bullets
  • would contain wonderful link-baity snippets designed
  • to get both you and search engines interested, all without
  • offending people or making fun of minority groups.
  • PAB2011 videos are here

Happy CDNOP!!

DECEMBER 1 IS THE SECOND (GREAT) CANADIAN NATIONAL DAY OF PODCASTING

This was so much fun last year, let’s do it again!

Here are the guiding principles :

- Put out a show! Dormant? Retired? Doesn’t matter – Do it!
- Don’t need to invent or reinvent anything. Just do a show like you used to – or something new, up to you. It’s all good.
- Reach out to “retired” producers. Spread the word.
- Don’t have a site anymore? Send us the audio – we’ll host it!
- Tag; #CDNOP
On December 2nd-ish, we’ll post a (hopefully massive) list of all the participating shows on Canadian Podcast Buffet – to be sure you haven’t missed any.
Les francophones sont invités a participer aussi, envoyer-nous vos liens!
Keep your earbuds on, this is going to be fun once again!
