One note regarding sound quality of this recording. We noticed some degrading of quality in some parts of the show. We’re not sure what the cause is—whether it’s Skype-related or our recording software—as we haven’t encountered this before. We hope it doesn’t spoil your listening experience, and we plan to have identified the cause and addressed it by next week.

Until later this week from Napa, California, and then next week’s regular show,

Podcasts for Communicators

Starting in January, Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz—two communicators who think they have something to say that you might find worth listening to—start their weekly podcasts. Shel’s in Concord, California, and Neville’s in Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

We’ll bring a balanced view on what’s going on in the US and Europe in communication, technology and other relevant topics.

We’ll be having weekly conversations via Skype and posting the resulting MP3 recording on this podcast blog. You will be able to get the podcasts from our RSS feed or download them directly from here. Either way, it will be simple for you to get them.

What will we talk about in our weekly podcasts? What will be the format for our conversations?

Well, why not listen to our pre-launch podcast we recorded today - that will give you a good idea of what to expect when we fully launch next month.

We hope you’ll find our conversations interesting and useful. We’d like to know what you think. Let us know if you have a specific topic you’d like us to discuss.

So look out for the first podcast in early January.

Meanwhile, our best wishes for a peaceful Christmas and New Year!
