Podcasting has come to Houston in a big way – but there is room for your skills to make sure it grows. Your’s truly, is becoming the resident Podgod – helping setup several podcasts as well as broadcasting a few of my own. Riding with the Window Down is a companion podcast to my blog and while it doesn’t have thousands of listeners, it is growing.
mobilepodcast.org is a Houston based podcaster focusing on mobile podcasting.
The biggest success so far is the Lone Star Gridiron podcast. It is a podcast that covers high school football in the Texas area. With only two shows under our belt, we already have some advertisers lined up and the listenership is growing fast. This type of niche podcasting has great potential.
A site that is just starting up is called This Week in Houston and it is designed to be a podcast about what is happening in Houston. TWiH is looking to local bands for musical content as well, so if you know of someone – spread the word.
If you are interested in setting up your own podcast, want to get some pub for your existing podcast, or would like to contribute to TWiH – drop by and check it out. Podcasting is exploding and Houston needs to be a major player in the space. We already have the best bloggers in the country – we need to become the best podcasters in the country… and that includes supporting our own.
Also check out the Houston Podcasting Yahoo Group – it is freshly created and needs some members!
