FIR Speakers & Speeches: Where Podcasting Fits in the Business World – July 9, 2007

Podcastingbookcover-thumbIn June 2007, How to Do Everything with Podcasting was published. Written by FIR co-hosts Shel Holtz with Neville Hobson, the book walks you step by step through the process of creating, broadcasting and promoting your own podcast.

In this FIR Speakers & Speeches podcast, Shel and Neville read a complete chapter from the book – “Chapter 20: Where Podcasting Fits in The Business World.”

This chapter is the introduction to Part 5 of the 360-page book, “Use a Podcast as a Business Communication Tool,” covering business podcasting today, podcasting as a marketing supplement, podcasting’s advantages and the regulatory argument.

More information about the book at the companion website:
