A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. A special episode of the Maccast from Macworld 2008. Audio from the Mac Podcaster Meet-up 2008. Adam was joined by fellow podcasters Scott Bourne (Apple Phone Show), Leo Laporte (Mac Break Weekly), Dave Hamilton (Mac Geek Gab), Ken Ray (Mac OS Ken), Cali Lewis (Geek Brief TV), and Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User) for a panel discussion on Podcasting. The group takled many of the topics and issues facing the podcasting industry today. The event also included a open mic session where fellow podcasters and listeners were able to ask questions and make comments on items raised by the panel.
Special thanks to the event sponsors Podango and Data Robotics.

What was the deal with that guy in the middle of the show that was claiming how huge podcasts were but was refusing to provide anything to back up his claims? 100 million downloads? 10,000 shows? It really seemed that the panel was holding their tongues because as a listener (and seemingly for the panel also) he really didn’t make much sense.
Thank god for Leo and Scott for being the only ones to try to question his numbers to see if he was just blowing smoke, but IF the guy is just waving around exaggerated marketing numbers then the rest of the panel should be embarrassed that they sat so quietly during that sales pitch.
