A podcast about Irish blogging, bloggers and events

I've been thinking and talking about the idea of doing a podcast around blogging, blogs and the people involved in Ireland. It will be a lot more of the latter than the former but it's certainly something I'd be interested in trying at least.

There's a lot that could be done there - interviews, readings, highlights, regular slots from contributors, advice on starting up, comedy sketches and talking about upcoming events that those listening might want to know about.

My idea would be a fortnightly "show", with presenters, contributors and segments. There's such a wealth of talent from the various people interacting on blogs, on twitter and generally online that I'm sure that something interesting can be found there.

I wouldn't even say it's purely "business" or "entertainment" or anything as focussed - perhaps a mixture or perhaps themed shows. I've liked how the podcasts went (I need to get to doing those as well) and it would be hugely open to collaboration, input and suggestions - just structured and regular.

I've had a few people express interest to me via twitter already but if you have any suggestions, ideas, requests or indeed think it's an awful idea, please do let me know.


  1. Sounds very interesting! I like the idea of a mixed bag on a show better than a narrow focus or themes. I think you're right, that there's plenty of material out there. Good luck!

  2. That's a great idea! Um. That's my say.

  3. think that's a really good idea. You could do a 'start your own blog slot' or something? anyway we'd be happy to help out!

  4. Love the idea. You must have the most active brain ever! seriously though, I never come up with good ideas.

  5. Susan - thanks so much! Would love you to come on at some stage.

    Travors - Dan, you're on my list to talk to!

    T cup - excellent, I'll be in touch! :)

    Jennifer - Ah it's just other people's ideas rehashed. I just think it's time to do something like this. Would love to get you on it some time!

  6. Great idea! I love listening to podcasts on my way to work Shel Holtz has some great information about podcasting: Looking forward to it.
