Today we take a look at a podcast from the Chertoff Group, called Insights & Intelligence. For those outside the beltway, Michael Chertoff is a former government employee who started a company to do consulting work. He hires many previous govies.[Read more…] about Review of the podcast “Insights & Intelligence”
Today we take a look at a podcast from Government CIO Media called “The Agile Advocate.” The Show Notes page has a good look with clean graphics and the audio is good. It sure looks like they are trying for a monthly podcast. Generally speaking, most popular podcasts don’t let listeners wait four weeks for the next episode.
In blogging we are taught not to write in blocks; the same is true in verbal communication. It seemed like the moderator was so serious that he was speaking in long paragraphs.[Read more…] about Review of the podcast “The Agile Advocate”
Today we take a look at a new podcast titled GDIT TechTalk. Now, if you are active in the Washington, D.C. federal technical community, then you would have an idea about the title. Last year GDIT merged with another large contractor called CRSA. It seems like an attempt to bring the two monsters together.
However, if you are just looking for a podcast to listen to, you would undoubtedly be chagrinned at the assembled letters of G, D, I, and T. If this podcast is targeted for employees, then they should say so in the description. If it is for a general audience, then work on the title and description.[Read more…] about A review of the podcast “GDIT Tech Talk”
“Two mints in one” was a television commercial from back in the 1970’s. The idea was the Cert mint was a taste mint as well as a breath mint. To my eyes, “The Business of Government Radio Hour” is an attempt at making a radio program a podcast. It seems to succeed on the air, but the IBM folks are not familiar with the basic concepts of podcast marketing.
The good news: excellent audio quality, knowledgeable hosts, and great guests. The bad news: the show is not marketed as a podcast, yet it appears on Apple Podcasts and PodcastOne.
When you arrive at the business of government website, you see a link to “interviews.” Are these video interviews? Written interviews? Podcasts?[Read more…] about A review of the podcast “Business of Government”
Let’s take a look at the podcast called AI Today from Cognilytica. I listened to episode #102, an interview with a couple of people who are applying artificial intelligence to solve an underwater problem. The concern is the proliferation of a non-native species called Lionfish.
Clocking in at 22 minutes, the podcast I listened to is enough time to give the basics of a topic and keep it interesting. The podcast has a classic open, body, and close. You will find an open and close bumper and a midroll read.
In my experience, multiple hosts and multiple guests make for a confusing interview. Here we have Kathleen Walch and Ronald Schelzer as moderators interviewing Erica Angle and Adam Kantor from an organization called Robots in Service, or RSE.[Read more…] about A review of the podcast “AI Today”
Alex Raul asked to connect to me on LinkedIn and I took a look at his profile. Lo and behold, he has a podcast. Since I have done hundreds and hundreds of interviews about the cloud, it made sense that I should review of The Cloud Native Show.
Cloud Native is a podcast from a Washington, D.C. based company called Rackner. This company has a focus on working with Amazon Web Services, so it makes sense to have a discussion talking about being native to the cloud environment.
The host has a natural voice for an interview program. The selection of a guest from a large company, Brooks Brothers, means that Rackner must have a well-known presence in large commercial companies. Selection of guests is great – from Brooks Brothers to Amazon. The moderator’s technical competency seems adequate.[Read more…] about Review of the podcast “The Cloud Native Show”
