With our Kickstarter campaign to fund a “weekly podcast for the Iowa Startup Community” now complete (yeah!), I wanted to share a few thoughts on the experience.Read More

So, it’s 2013 and while I’ve never been much of a motivated-by-resolutions type of guy, I thought I’d give it a try this year. In all honesty, I couldn’t be happier that 2012 is over - that year was filled with loss, disappointment, injury and illness (some happy stuff, too, but that’s overshadowed in my current retrospective) - and I want to make the most of all that 2013 could be.Read More
Two big milestones to report last week in podcasting related to my life.
First of all, we ended PrairieCast, the SPN-themed podcast that I co-hosted with my friend Andy Brudtkuhl for more than two years. We put together 80 episodes in that time on four different platforms. I've been a podcast consumer for many years and I was really excited to create one when we started back in February of 2010.
I've been a consumer of podcasts for several years. It started as far back as 2002 when I would download the Bob & Tom Show directly from their website(1) for something fun to listen to at work. I took a bit of hiatus from it for awhile and then picked it up in earnest about 24 months ago.
I now listen to a multitude of podcasts - from comedy, to educational, to sports - because it helps me feel like I'm not wasting any part of my day. I listen in coffee shops, I listen while washing dishes and I listen while in the car.
Last week, I made the jump from simply consuming this audio content to creating it. I teamed up with experienced podcaster Andy Brudtkuhl in Des Moines to create PrairieCast, a weekly discussion of and with entrepreneurs and innovators in Des Moines and on the Silicon Prairie.
We've recorded one episode and are set to record our second one this week. You can find PrairieCast at the link above or subscribe to it through iTunes. Additionally, Andy has a long standing podcast called "Managing the Edge" and he had me on as his guest last Friday. Check out that episode here.
