I have been taking part in online communities since I first learned how computers could connect people together, sometime in the mid-1980s.
When I first came to know Eden Spodek, and then worked with her as an organizer on the social media unconference Podcamp Toronto earlier this year, I realized she had just as much interest in communities online as I do. Even though we sometimes come to it from different angles, we have a real rapport when talking about our favourite people and favourite community-building tools.
With the help and support of many of our friends, Eden and I decided to host our own podcast about online communities and some of the social networking tools that help build them. It’s called Community Divas (link to iTunes)
We are very fortunate to have had the help of Jay Moonah with our first episode, and we decided to take the opportunity to interview him for the podcast. Part 1 of the interview we did with Jay Moonah, podcaster, marketing strategist, musician and a driving force behind Podcamp Toronto is in Episode 1, and the second part will be in our next episode in about two weeks.
We hope you’ll listen and participate by giving us your feedback and offering suggestions on how we can make it more meaningful for you. Follow Community Divas on Twitter or join the fan page on Facebook.
If you are also interested in learning more about podcasts and social media, consider attending Niagara Podcasting and Social Media Meet-up next weekend and PodCamp Montréal, September 20 & 21. Admission is free for both events and I am looking forward to attending both.
