Getting Quick-n-Dirty with Aaron Strout: Guest Hosting a Podcast

October 23, 2009 in News & Events | Comments (0)


When someone asks you to fill in for them on something, it’s flattering. When that person is someone for whom you have a pretty sizable load of respect, it’s even more so.
Jennifer Leggio is one of those women in the tech industry for whom I hold such a sentiment, and so when she asked if I would fill her co-host spot one day on the podcast she does with Aaron Strout, I was pleased to say yes.
So that’s what I did today from 3pm to 4pm.
They use the same production platform that I use for Social Media Hour, which is BlogTalkRadio. It’s not the greatest, but it’s just about the only comprehensive and reasonably reliable option I’ve found for doing a talk show.
We talked a bit about some social applications, we talked with Gradon Tripp and Meg Fowler of Social Media for Social Change, he graciously allowed me do to a shameless plug of my quest to be the Panasonic Living in HD Insider, we talked about the featured Tweeter of the week – Ben Foster of Allstate, we debated advertising on social platforms and then Jennifer Leggio actually called in (turned out the trip on which she was *supposed* to go was canceled so she actually *could* have done the show, but was kind enough to let me sit in anyway), and then we wrapped it up.
Whew. I’m exhausted just reading that. No wonder I was so pooped and my already fading voice got even more Debra Winger-like towards the end.
It was a great time, and I’d gladly go back again; and certainly will be asking both Jennifer and Aaron to join me on Social Media Hour soon!
