Subscribe to the RSS feed and follow me on Twitter and American Airlines


As covered in a press release today and picked up by Paul Colligan, we have sold the rights to run episodes of GrapeRadio on American Airlines starting next month. An assortment of episodes will be available on the in-flight personal entertainment media players in both Business and First Class.

This was a long time coming and we are extremely pleased about our new partnership with America Airlines. I think this is another great example of the kinds of opportunities overlooked by most “podcasters.” As I mentioned in my PNME 2007 presentation, you are more than just a podcaster. Once you stop focusing solely on your RSS feed and start to see yourself as a Digital Media Entrepreneur all sorts of other opportunities for building your brand, your distribution and monetization appear. Congratulations to my partners at GrapeRadio, great job! You can read the press release here.

    Yay! Congratulations to you all. How nice to see your hard work and creativity rewarded with extra attention like this. As an airline passenger, I am often desperate for seomthing (anything!) new and interesting to occupy my flight time. This will be a great opportunity to expose a whole new audience to your good work.

    Many happy returns!
