The Nebraska Farm Bureau is about to kick off its annual convention in Kearney. I bring this up because we have such good friends there and I don’t get a chance to write about state groups as often as I’d like. However, I want to use NEFB as an example of a group that I recommend start podcasting.
I know you’re saying “Not podcasting again.” But when you’re an evangelist you never give up on what you believe in.
I recommend podcasting to organizations like NEFB because they’re already producing their own audio. For example, you can listen to Tina Henderson’s first convention report which is available as an audio download from their website. It wouldn’t be much trouble to podcast that. Producing and hosting the audio is the hard part. By podcasting it members don’t have to be at their computer to listen. They can subscribe and if they have an iPod or other digital audio player, they can listen wherever they want. They’ll also get updates without even having to go back to the website.
So in a soon to be memorial line “Gentlemen & Ladies, start your iPods.” It’s farm podcasting and coming to a farmer’s iPod near you.
Oh, and Tina, you sound marvelous.
