In response to the explosive popularity of podcasting as a hobby, vocation and creative outlet, TASCAM has announced the launch of TASCAM Talkback, a bi-weekly podcast created specifically for podcasters and streamers.
Designed to help podcasters enhance the art, craft, and content of their shows, TASCAM Talkback will delve into the technical aspects of putting together an ongoing podcast series, as well as the critical and organizational skills required to book guests, navigate interviews, and keep a long running show on track month after month.
Heading up TASCAM Talkback is Bruce Wawrzyniak, a veteran podcaster behind more than 180 episodes of the Now Hear This Entertainment podcast. This hugely popular series shines a spotlight on up-and-coming talent in the music industry and gives listeners an intimate view into the artistic process of a musician, as well as insight into various business concerns facing today’s artists.
“Bruce’s connection to the music world makes him a natural addition to the TASCAM family, but it’s his experience as a podcaster that makes him the perfect host for this show” remarked Eric Larsen, Director of Marketing for TASCAM. “This project is intended to be both educational and conversational, and this requires a host who has really been-there-done-that. Bruce is that guy.”
“Bruce’s Now Hear This Entertainment podcasts have been incredibly popular because he knows how to get the most out of his guests,” added Chris Krimitsos, Chief Creative Officer of Podfest Multimedia Expo and Executive Producer of The Messengers: A Podcast Documentary, a definitive and highly acclaimed journey into the world of podcasting. “For someone like Bruce to bring his insight and expertise to a show created for podcasters is amazing on its own; for him to do it together with TASCAM, a company that has been at the heart of so many podcasters’ systems, is even more fantastic. This is going to be a hell of a great series.”
The premier episode of TASCAM Talkback is available for download now and will return every two weeks with a new episode. It can also be heard on iTunes and Stitcher Radio, with more platforms to be added.
