Of all the social media tools that have emerged since the turn of the century, one of the most exciting is podcasting.

Podcasting first started in 2004 with audio and has become a medium of communication used by individuals and organizations of all types and sizes – Fortune 100 companies in the US, FTSE 100 in the UK, non-profits, governments, small- to medium-size businesses, the mainstream media… you name it, today they’re podcasting in one form or another.

I’ve been involved in podcasting since 2004, currently co-hosting two regular business podcasts:

The Small Data Forum podcast, co-hosting with Thomas Stoeckle and Sam Knowles. We co-founded this monthly podcast in London in the summer of 2016 with the idea of making Big Data less intimidating, more actionable and thus more valuable, in particular for marketing and communications professionals.

Each month, we get together (usually virtually) to listen, learn, share and educate ourselves and others who grapple with the challenges of the information avalanche. We discuss current industry themes and news topics in the wider context of data, politics and society.

For Immediate Release: The Hobson & Holtz Report, the monthly podcast that extends from the original weekly show that Shel Holtz and I co-presented for over a decade from January 2005 until September 2015.

With the new H&H Report that we started in 2017, Shel and I explore the detail each month behind changing technologies, changing behaviours and changing organizations that reflect the realities of business, communication and technology in contemporary society, each of us with our perspectives from the USA (Shel) and Europe (Neville).
