I have a feeling that Endurance Planet, the podcast created by Tim Bourquin (of Podcast Brothers and PME fame) has been sold. Tim has often mentioned finding a new home for Endurance Planet. When talking with him the other day, he let it slip that he had just done his last EP interview. When pressed, he was tight lipped about why. My guess is he sold it. Given its track record and the niche it fills, Tim should have gotten a good price for the show and archives. I guess we’ll have to wait to see if I am right or just spreading rumors.
Update: Confirmed. Tim sold it, though the buyer has not been publicly disclosed yet. They made mention of the sale in the 1-25-07 Podcast Brothers. Congrats to Tim & Co.
I accepted an invitation to speak at CES this year. Looks to be an interesting panel along with friends, Eric Schwartzman, Jason Van Orden and moderated by Tim Bourquin. It is an important topic: Audio and Video Podcasting: The Right Way To Use This Medium for Marketing. That plus the Las Vegas location made it a no brainer. I’ve been to CES a few times and always had a great time. [Link]
I just posted an interesting interview with Tim Bourquin on our Behind The Mic Series. If you are curious about the story behind the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, you may find it interesting. I have to admit though, my favorite part is our discussion of “advanced” field research techniques for measuring the spread of podcasting. [link]
