Dan Carlin – Host of the Hardcore History and Common Sense podcasts, Political Commentator
New media is coming for us. Well, if you are reading this, it already came for you – so congratulations on being ahead of the curve. New media is supposed to be the “democratization” of the creation, production, distribution and consumption of media by the masses. It’s a way to level the playing field, to take down the big dogs, to help David beat Goliath, to…..well, you get the idea. The thing that’s crazy is, I can’t believe there isn’t MORE interest in new media. Think about it, why does anyone listen to the radio anymore? Now you can just tune in to awesome podcasts with limited to no advertisements, pause and resume at your leisure, and pick your topic! I guess that’s why we got into this in the first place, to try to be stewards of this new media movement. Well I’m not here to talk to you about podcasts, I’ll leave that up to someone who’s much better at it than I!
