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.

Great show! Very inspiring and a great insight into what’s happening in the podcast industry.
For some reason, when people are asking for a Mac developer podcasts, http://www.cocoacast.com is always overlooked, why waiting for some hypothetical podcast from PixelCorps.tv when more than 40 screencasts on Cocoa development are already out there?
Late Night Cocoa is still alive, Scotty even added a couple more podcasts at http://www.macdevnet.com, check it out!
Great job, Adam. Congratulations on getting all those people together. Interesting to hear the panel be almost defensive about watching their number of listeners. I don’t think it’s anything to be defensive about. After all, you create these shows for people to listen to and/or watch, right? Knowing how many people subscribe to your shows seems a valid source of feedback to me. Keep up the great work.
Thanks Adam – my only quibble is that Victor Cajiao wasn’t on the dais.
I did want to make a comment about why some people don’t listen to as many podcasts as they should. I have found that many podcasts don’t get updated on any consistent basis. I have found a few shows that looked interesting, but once I start listening, they don’t get updated any more, or I didn’t realize that they haven’t been updated in months. This is the biggest reason my dad doesn’t listen to podcasts. He found a few he liked, but they were very unreliable. The reason you and the rest of this panel and many others are successful is because of the reliability. I know that you will update weekly, even if it is just to tell me that you won’t be updating that day. I have started listening to a lot more podcasts because you, or Victor mention them on your sites. That is a great way for up and coming podcasters to get their name out there.
Thanks again, Keep up the great work!
