MacCast mentioned on UK’s ‘The Gadget Show’

Written by: Adam Christianson

This is so cool. I was just told by a listener that the MacCast was mentioned on the latest episode of The Gadget Show on Channel 5 in the UK. I was very excited and flattered to hear the news. Thanks to The Gadget Show and Channel 5 for even considering my show worth the mention, I am honored.

Since I obviously don’t get UK TV here in the States, I would love it if someone could send me a clip of episode.

UPDATE: Thanks to a listener I now have a copy of the segment and a DVD version is on the way. I have asked for permission to post the clip, so as soon as (and if) I get it I will post a link.

    (I’m the one who told Adam btw)

    I was amazed when I heard them recommend the MacCast. Wow! This is getting big

    To quote from the show, “Here’s a brilliant one I can thoroughly recommend, The Maccast, for Mac geeks by Mac geeks”. To be mentioned on a cable/satellite channel would be cool, but this was shown on one of the United Kingdom’s main five terrestrial channels (i.e. everyone in the UK has these channels). It was the only podcast Jon Bentley recommended on the show, with only a passing glance of Adam Curry’s show. The Maccast is also the only podcast mentioned on their website – and click “links”. Well done Adam ;)

    Hmm.. Suprised it didn’t happen sooner ;) Great work, keep it up.

    Channel 5 was launched less than 10 years ago.

    It has by far the lowest viewing figures of all the 5 terrestrial channels.

    (but 100% of people in the UK with satellite or cable can get Channel 5 free of charge)

    But saying that, Channel 5 does have a few very good programmes.

    but still.. this is superb. I love the MacCast

    – the presenter (of the MacCast) is just an honest guy, not prentious, no commercial agenda (no adverts) , he’s intellingent etc. etc.

    Adam, you don’t even need to bother with fancy jingles, prizes. Please keep up the good work.

    Congrats Adam! You must be really excited about this! Your podcast was one of the very first podcasts I ever subscribed to, and since then each episode has always been worth listening to. Keep up the good work! -Stitzu

    I have a copy of The Gadget show in question toasted onto DVD that will play on your Mac dvd player if you have not been offered/sent one yet.
