Podcamp NYC

(35:03) John C Havens is the lead organizer of Podcampnyc and the writer of the Podcasting Section of About.com. This is a great interview for those unfamiliar with podcasting who want to know what it can do for you and why others are so excited about it. This interview also a great introduction to the emerging ideas of barcamp and unconferences. I picture this episode being great for those arts organizations who've heard about these concepts but have yet to implement them.

Electric Youth

(23:11) Dean Parker wrote the book for a musical featuring Deborah Gibson's music he thought no one would ever be interested. Boy was he wrong. The show has begun it's journey to Broadway in a small family-owned Orlando theatre called the "Starlight Theatre," with Ms Gibson attending opening night.
