My Head’s Bout To Splode

Is there a 12-step program for podcasters? It seems like I can’t stop!

We have nine podcasts on the network. We cover tech news, the Internet, security, gadgets, open source, biotech, media, computer help, and the Mac. What’s missing from this list?

A Windows Vista podcast, of course. I’ve got a really good host in mind. He’s agreed in principal, and I expect we’ll launch when he gets back from vacation in early September. You’re going to love this one.

Alex really wants to launch an audio version of MacBreak – and I’m with him on that. I think we’ll make this more TWiT and TWiMish. I have some wonderful Mac experts in mind for the roundtable. We’ll probably launch MacBreak Weekly next week, right after Apple’s WWDC announcements.

And my off hand comment on TWiT a few weeks back about how we need a podcast covering the myriad legal issues surrounding copyright, net neutrality, privacy, and security, stimulated an avalanche of mail from interested lawyers. Denise Howell says she’s willing to host – she’s perfect for the job – and I think we’ll be launching this roundtable in the next few weeks.

So that’s three more podcasts coming soon to I can’t promise I’ll stop, but I do think we now have a pretty well rounded offering. You know why I’m doing all this, don’t you?  I want to be on the cover of Business Week just like Kevin!

Tom Cruise’s doughier little brother” will join us this week on TWiT, by the way, so we can rib him about the cover. Cory Doctorow will be on, too, now that’s he’s back in the States. Should be a good show.
