PCPGH Video: “Grassroots Podcasting”

From PodcampPittsburgh.com:

The Wrestling Mayhem Show and Should I Drink That join forces once again for their annual panel to discuss their methods in gaining a grassroots following in their respective niches, and maybe lay out a little violence.

You can subscribe to our video or audio feed in itunes to make sure you get all of the content as it comes out. You can also follow us on Blip.tv, TalkShoe, or right here on this news feed.

We had a great time this past weekend at Podcamp Pittsburgh 4.  And DJLunchbox and myself had a chance to sit down after we recorded Episode 189 to talk about our experiences over the weekend.

If you’re on the itunes stream, you might already have it, if not, head on over to our TalkShoe host page and grab it for yourself, or listen here:

The Chopping is Infectious

It’s amazing how much we’ve influenced the Podcamp scene over the years.  As we displayed the other day with our own videos, this phenomenon of “chopping” our social media friends is just as strong as in Podcamp Pittsburgh 1.  This year, Uncle Crappy, DrScooter, and DaCheet joined our little “club” of victims.   But the most amazing thing is that, aside from during our won Grassroots Podcasting session with ShouldIDrinkThat, we don’t encourage it outwardly.  When a colleague, or new face, comes up to one of us and asks “can I get chopped”, there are a few things that run through our heads.  1. This guy is crazy. and 2. Sure!

Anyways, this was a long lead into DahCheet’s round of videos displaying just that fact.

Podcamp Chops: Still Effective

Another Podcamp is over, and chopping ensued during our session, which was awesome to have our listeners watch live on the Podcamp stream, and aftwerwards at the bar.  We have three phone-recorded videos with chopping participants, Chachi, DJLunchbox, Uncle Crappy, V-Rock, and DaCheet.  Enjoy…
