All The Web's A Stage

If the Bard were alive today, he might have appreciated the portable fame podcasting provides. Imagine works of the English playwright being downloaded to your iPod or mp3 player for "Shakespeare on the Go."

Imagine no longer. Inspired by the recent surge in podcast downloads, PR firm Jonathan Slaff & Associates launched TheaterPod.Com, podcasting production and distribution services for performing arts organizations. JS&A recently edited -- for mp3 distribution -- snippets of performances by the Kings County Shakespeare Company.

The 15-minute podcast spotlights KCSC's upcoming production, "Rappacini's Daughter" and "Bad Evidence," two plays by Terry Quinn, which will be presented in a two-part evening by KCSC April 14 to 17, 2005 at the Abingdon Theater Complex in Manhattan. -- News Release
As you like it (or not -- wink wink), download the theatre podcast from either Kings County Shakespeare Company or the Podcast Source Directory at TheaterPod.Com.

Alas! Me thinks I should have wanted to be the first person to think of marketing these services. Assuredly, I will not be the last.

Phew! I'd better get some business podcasts up here quick, before I embarrasse myself further from trying to badly emulate Shakespearean language. Meanwhile, lots of media companies and boutique agencies have already sprung up offering their own niche of turn-key podcast production services.

If you'd like to get in on the podcasting craze, below are a few selected links. BTW, please don't email me with links to add here. This is just an overview. Yes, I will no doubt update this page irregularly, but I just don't have the time to be a linkmaster. Besides, as you peruse these resources, you'll eventually find more...I promise...really, I do.
