Check out the Alberta podcast roundup

When I was learning about the local podcasting community, I found it was powerful to let people know about each other. So, while we wait for the paperwork and other nuts-and-bolts matters to get sorted out for the Alberta Podcast Network, I thought I'd apply the lessons of the past to the present and create a regular roundup of Alberta-based podcasts.

None of these are members of the network, because there are no members yet (though I've been test-driving the ad format on my podcast, which will be an unpaid member of the network). But I was happy to expand my Alberta podcast listening, and I hope this little bit of attention is welcome:

Alberta podcast roundup 1
I've been rounding up Edmonton-area podcasts for a couple of years. Here's the most recent example of that:

Now that we're building the Alberta Podcast Network, it's important to expand the scope beyond the capital. I'm still working out what that will look like in the long term, but for now, I'd like to highlight some podcasts based elsewhere in Alberta that I had a chance to listen to recently: 
On The Know Nothing Podcast, Eric Garner talks to entrepreneur Jeff Hill about Nike founder Phil Knight's book, Shoe Dog; on The WorkNotWork Show, Terrence Gannon interviews Paul Brodie about building Brodie Bikes and his subsequent adventures.

What else?

Let me know what you think about this roundup. I'm hoping to publish it or something like it on the website of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.

In the works is a way to deputize some other listeners so we can scale this beyond my own ears and time.

I'm collecting information about Alberta-based podcasts on this form. If you have reason to believe that I haven't heard of your podcast, please fill out the form so that I know about it.

The recruitment process will start soon, and I will let you know where we're at as soon as possible.

Many thanks. Happy listening and happy podcasting!
