Podcasting- Part 2

Contributed by Duncan Fremlin, Broker. In the last issue of PSN, I wrote about podcasting and the impact it is having on terrestrial radio.   I read recently that some of you haven’t explored this world yet.  What are you waiting for?

 
Parliament Street News is a special publication.  It enables each of us to stay connected and feel like we actually belong to something important, not an easy feat in a huge overpopulated city like ours.  If you’re new to podcasting, here’s another one to check out.  It’s special because it is Toronto-centric offering personalities and topics about us.  It’s called Toronto Mike’d.  You can find it on all of the popular platforms or go to www.torontomike.com

 
Mike Boon is the host and at this writing, in seven years, he has uploaded over 570 episodes, an astonishing number by any podcasting standards.   Mike describes it as “a podcast about anything and everything”.  If you search past episodes, you’ll likely find a local personality, or maybe even a friend that you know or are interested in.  It’s not only entertaining, it’s good company.

 
Unlike commercial radio and TV, podcasting is not measured by “how many are listening” but rather, “who is listening”.   Mike has taken this huge metropolis called the GTA and reduced it to a village, friends and neighbours who are really nice and interesting.  His guests come from all age groups and all walks of life.   Many are very famous and others not famous at all.  The best part is, the conversation isn’t controlled by a clock or fast food commercials.   If the guest has an interesting story or a special song that they want to share, no problem, Mike has all the time in the world.

 
Mike’s interviewing style is a cross between Brian Linehan and Howard Stern, well researched, non-confrontational and intelligent.  His guests open up like they would to a good friend and after you listen to a few of his interviews, you’ll appreciate that he is exactly that, a good friend.
Full disclosure – I’m a new sponsor and a recent guest.
