Our New Podcast: Politics, Streaming Wars, the Oscars -- and Faith

THE LATEST is getting its podcasting act together. Here's a link to our most recent one.

At THE LATEST, we tried podcasting and webisodes some years back, but our site was giving us trouble at the time and we literally closed it down for quite a while in order to conduct some much-needed repairs.

Things that seemed to work well in our test site didn't work so well in the real world.

We relaunched TheLatest.com in late 2017, so the site has been up and running for two years now -- the site is always a work in progress -- and we figured it's time to get back into podcasting.

In this most recent podcast, taped last Friday, Feb. 7, we talked about how the race for president is shaping up, the streaming wars, the Oscars and the need to believe in something.

My colleagues Karl Susman and Rachel Capoccia joined me.  The podcast is around 15 minutes long.  The one we did the week before was over 40 minutes long.  We're getting a little better each time.

I'm late in getting the word out to you, our site visitors, and so keep this in mind if you listen to our podcast (see link, below):

-- The political talk was just after Iowa and the State of the Union -- and the impeachment vote -- but before New Hampshire;

-- Rachel Capoccia's Oscar prediction -- made before the Oscar ceremony -- is really, really interesting, in my view, in light of what we know now.

The streaming war segment, led by Karl and the need for faith (Rachel) remain as timely and relevant as ever.

As we go forward from here, we're thinking we'll go more niche. 

We want to produce stand-alone podcasts on tech, sports, politics, law, fashion, entertainment -- you name it. 

If you would like to participate, we're looking for people who know their topics and who like to talk. If you have a particular passion for a particular topic and want to be a podcaster, please drop me a line: [email protected].

I particularly like politics but, in keeping with our "neutrality" philosophy, we want to include a healthy mix of liberals, moderates and conservatives.  Let me know if you would like to join us.

If you need a terrific producer of podcasts in order to do your own podcast, I highly recommend Christine O'Donnell at BrightSighted.com:

I'll be back in a few days after we post our next one.
