I introduced the term farm podcasting into a USDA press conference earlier this week (see post from May 1) and since then I’ve had several people ask me about it. Questions include, “What’s a podcast?” “How can I do it?”
In our ZimmCast this week I interview Leon Corzine, President of the National Corn Growers Association, about marketing and legislation. Although sometimes these seem very separate they really are very related aspects of the business of agriculture.
In our weekly program from the Missouri Beef Industry Council, I talked to Communications Director Dawn Thurnau about Beef Day at the Capitol. It takes place on Tuesday, May 3. Dawn describes all the activities the MBIC is involved in that day. She doesn’t mention it but you can also get your picture take with Molly Moo! I’m looking forward to meeting her.
Due to the NAMA convention this week’s MBIC Report is posted a little late. In this week’s program from the Missouri Beef Industry Council, Cindy spoke with Teri Jo Oetting, nutrition director, about the new USDA food guidance system from the perspective of a dietitian.
If you still wonder if blogging and podcasting is something that has business applications then you ought to see what General Motors is doing. Although they have more than one blog, start with GM Fastlane.
In this week’s MBIC Report, the weekly program from the Missouri Beef Industry Council, I talk with Steve Taylor, Executive Director, about the pending food guide and Teri Jo Oetting, Nutrition Education Director, about their exhibit at the Missouri League for Nursing convention at Osage Beach, MO.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project has done a little bit of research on podcasting. Here’s an excerpt from a new article on their website called “Podcasting catches on”:
One of the only people out on the bold, cutting edge of information delivery is Blair Fannin, with Texas A&M University. Listen to Cindy in this week’s ZimmCast talk about his weekly programming which is podcast so you can subscribe and download just like our ZimmCast! ZIMMCAST
Our ZimmCast this week features fellow blogger Keith Good. Keith is the publisher of FARMPOLICY.com, one of the few blogs focusing on agriculture. Keith keeps an eye on the mainstream news and provides a concise summary of news that’s important to agriculture. You can listen to the interview here or subscribe to our podcast feed in the sidebar titled “ZimmCast.”
Although it repeats some of the things that I’ve written before about podcasting I still recommend you look at this article written by Stephan Spencer for MarketingProfs.com and in their e-newsletter today.
