Pinoy Podcasts … tons of funs… to tune in

The world of Podcasts coming to pinoy audiances is growing. gruops like PCIJ have been putting out podcasts for a couple of years. The latest one is a farewell to summer from the summer capital.

[] … Farewell to summer: A special podcast from Baguio City

PCIJ Podcasts HIS past summer, many Filipinos flocked to Baguio City in the north to escape the sweltering heat of the lowlands. Although summer is gone, they remember Baguio with fondness. Baguio has a special place in the Filipino’s heart. It is the beloved summer capital, the alluring City of Pines, the place that holds many childhood memories….[] PCIJ.org

ABS-CBNNews.com has wealth of pod-able stuff on its website and as well on ABS-CBN Now its downloadble pod-able virtaul download areana which is a paid service.

Myself am still working my podcasts. I put up a podblog area for now- while work on my techie skills- but since my best medium has always been the visual. I really plan to have a video podcast soon… hopefully it will work to be a something that will free me from the world of news blues the industry I'm in is in.

Overseas in Hong Kong for example - a recent podcast I heard was on maids plights on the site of the Suoth China Morning post.


But there is little yet in the way of freelance pod networks for freelance podders - most content is porduced in house. SO podding for pera- is still far off- not only here but abroad as well.

One way to raise hits on podcasts though is to link up your pod with broadcasters. www.mabuhayradio.net is home to Dean Bernardo and my little dabble in news and info overseas.

rchive Shows:

SUN - Lab Songs Lang
MON - Mabuhay Music Hour
TUES - Mabuhay Music Hour
WED - Mabuhay Music Hour
THUR - Magandang Gabi Po
FRI - Kommunity Korner
SAT - Perlas ng Silanganan

We do a portion of a show a newscast called - pilipinas direct is the name of the daily ten minute news pod we do. check it outsome time. Its more of a free to air and free to pod newscast. hopefully its something that will grow.
