Coming Soon: The Community Admin Show

A while back I decided that I would like to start podcasting. Basically, I thought it’d be fun. So, I did some thinking on what type of show I could do. I came up with one main idea, a show for community administrators. I decided that I didn’t want to do it as a part of my network, at this time. I felt it’d be fun to let someone else be in charge of all the stuff that comes along with that, with me being the one responsible for producing the podcast. So, I pitched it to The Podcast Network. They liked the idea and said to create a pilot (the first episode). I did. And they decided to go forward with the show. So, that’s cool. They’ll be setting me up on their server in the next week or two and then I’ll start publishing shows shortly thereafter.

The show will consist of the following:

– Me speaking about topics that I have experience with that effect community administrators. A lot of these topics will come from communities I visit, such as SitePoint and I’ll speak about the topic and how I handle it or would handle it, etc.
– Interviews. We’ll be interviewing people related to the field. A lot of the time this will be community administrators, bringing their perspective to the show and allowing people to learn from it. This will be a big part of the show.
– Listener questions. I hope to make listener questions a big part of the show. People looking for input and advice.

We may have a little bit of news/announcements here and there, as well. But, it won’t be all that much. Just if something catches my eye. I won’t be just doing any news, like the release of forum software, etc. That’s not what the show is for. Maybe the highlighting of specific resources, as well. We’ll see. It will be a bi-weekly show with each one being between 30 minutes and an hour (probably 30-45 minutes each).
