They are the hosts of ABC Gotham, the NYC history podcast that covers a new topic every episode from each letter of the alphabet, its Kathleen Durkin and Kate Murray! What makes NYC so fascinating? What about beer? How delicious is it and what can we say about it? Oh and what about those Risk boards based on countries and cities? All this and more go listen!

Sorry for the delay but health issues have kept this ship down the last week or so. We’ll also be switching to a one episode per week format for the foreseeable future while much catching up is done.
This month’s panel is really about the most popular type of podcast out there: the nerd panel. It’s when a bunch of people (usually white guys in their late 20s) get together and talk about…whatever. It could be Battlestar Galactica, bad movies, soda pop, model trains, you name it. These enthusiasts make up the majority of podcasts out there, but why? Why are these shows so popular to make and why to people keep listening? Here to answer this is a panel of majesty and esteem. From the Nerdpocalypse family of shows we have returning guest Jay Jacksonrao! From the Fantasy Movie Podcast another returning favorite Kasey Thacker! And the champion of Psquared panels 19 Nocturne Boulevards producer extraordinaire Julie Hoverson.

This month we take a look at some of the growing influence of apps on the podcast world. To tackle this subject we consult with two app experts that are behind very different types of apps. Our first guest is the vice president of podcaster relations at Libsyn and strong proponent of individual apps for each podcast it’s Rob Walch. Our second guest is the vice president of product at Stitcher smart radio and someone who believes that podcast discovery is the biggest issue facing podcasts today, it’s Todd Pringle.
Our returning guest this week has been a mainstay in the tech industry for more than a decade, he is the VP of Product at Stitcher and all around good guy, Todd Pringle! We delve into the topics that have been addressed all month: why responsibility does Stitcher have to the podcast community? How can apps help represent minorities? Are more detailed statistics the key to monetizing content? And so much more. Fans of the Stitcher app will certainly enjoy the details on all that behind the scenes info so check it out.
