People who should be podcasting
Mr. Bischke over at Learn Out Loud listed 10 back in March, but now that I’ve stumbled across his list, I can really only agree with two or maybe three of his selections.
1) Bill Clinton, who’s used to speaking often and extemporaneously on a variety of subjects, could pull off a podcast. People would listen to him read a phone book and come back for more… his voice is so warm and soothing that it’d be irresistable. However, podcasting seems a bit informal for a former “Leader of the Free World.” If he said anything even remotely controversial it’d be all over everywhere online within minutes…. not an attractive possibility
2) Margaret Cho is a standup comic, so she’s got the vocal performance and snappy delivery down, but churning out sufficient entertaining content might be an issue.
3) Steve Wozniak… For interesting content, the guy’s had a crazy life, full of genuinely interesting anecdotes and experiences. I seem to remember a story about him meeting his wife through the dial-a-joke service he set up during college. That earns him a pass from me.
