Brian is a nerd and a geek of many interests. In this article, he will examine his interest in podcasting. Specifically, what it is, his influences, and examples of his favorite shows.

Nerd Brian Origins: Podcasting

In 2006 I listened to my first podcast - The Mac Geek Gab, a weekly show starring Dave Hamilton and John F. Braun. Their show, which is about giving tips to Mac power users, struck a chord with me, as I had been a Mac user for a long time. In radio, people could call into the show and interact with the host, and listeners live, but in a recorded podcast, this would seemingly be impossible. John and Dave’s innovation in using email, Twitter, and Facebook to connect with fans overcame the difficulty of interacting with listeners. Later, these two even started live streaming their show, allowing the listeners to interact in a chat room.

However, my love for audio communication goes back even further. - As a kid, I enjoyed listening to AM radio - namely Clark Howard and Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM. These two programs (please note that Coast to Coast AM is now hosted by George Noory) while both originating in the 90s, before the age of podcasting, now incorporate podcasting into their business model. For Clark Howard, he has his shows available to download two days after the show airs originally on their syndicated stations. For Coast to Coast AM, they have a service called Coast Insider, costing as little as fifteen cents per day, to access five years of the show’s archives, commercial free.

I am still a fan of AM radio (and a little FM) even today, however, I listen to only about an hour of radio for every ten hours of podcasts. However, that takes into account some of the podcasts I listen to which are essentially downloaded radio shows: Clark Howard and Car Talk. I think this concept of listening to your shows (television or radio) on your own schedule has really become popular in recent years. On the television end, this was done with concepts of TiVo (and other DVRs) as well as Netflix and Hulu. Essentially, with these options, you watch television programs when you want to watch them - not when the network programmers tell you when to watch.

This has branched into radio shows as well. I mean if you look at the Apple iTunes (as of 7/12/2014), six of the top ten podcasts are radio programs. Its shows that people want to listen to these popular shows, but just on their own time. When one thinks about listening to radio, most of us likely listen at regular intervals (on the way to or back from our place of work or school). But what if you go into work at seven in the morning, and one of your favorite radio programs comes on the air a nine - you likely won’t be able to listen to the show. Now, that problems is solved as many popular radio programs are available for free, and others are available at a low price (such as Coast to Coast AM and Kim Komando).

So what are other podcasts to which I subscribe? A lot of the podcasts I listen to stem from other podcasts I also subscribe to. Sometimes the host(s) are also on other shows (regulars or guests), while sometimes it is the parent company of the original podcast where I find other content of which to listen. The Mac Geek Gab was the first podcast to which I subscribed. From there, a dedicated listener, Michael Johnston, started his own podcast called iPhone Alley (which has since changed its name to We Have Communicators and then its current name, The iOS Show). Michael Johnston would transform the Mac Geek Gab standard MP3 episodes and, upgrade them to an Enhanced ACC format. Of course John and Dave promoted Michael’s show, and therefore he got listeners as well.

Listening to The iOS show (iPhone Alley at the time), I was introduced to another couple of podcasters who were regulars on Michael’s show - Adam Christianson, and Jeff Gamet. Adam also does a weekly show called MacCast and Jeff does another couple shows - Apple Context Machine and TMO Daily Observations. Another podcast I subscribe to is Adam Carolla’s The Adam Carolla Show Podcast. Enjoying his daily podcast, and appreciating the work that Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam did on the Loveline radio show growing up, I subscribe also to the Adam and Dr. Drew Podcast.

So as you can see, my podcast subscriptions are primarily are about Apple/pop culture/news/humor. Podcasting is something I’m really excited to be finally jumping into, having been a fan of audio talk shows for a long time. Thank you for reading this article, and now you know a little bit about my Origins when it comes to podcasts.

What are podcasts of which you regularly subscribe?
