I was invited to speak to a class of media students at Durham College today. Their instructor, Rita, has wisely introduced new media into the curriculum, so I was asked to speak about podcasting.
I have a rule... if I can bike to something, I'll do my very best to accommodate all such requests. Durham College is in North Oshawa and well out of my bike range, and although I considered a combination of Go Train and bike, driving made the most sense. So I broke my rule and drove. Obviously my rules aren't etched in stone.
It was a great pleasure talking podcasting with our future podcasters, even though the bulk of my references were before their time. I'm used to that. Here's proof nobody fell asleep.
Since I came all that way, I had to drop by 94.9 The Rock to see my pal Bob Willette. Bob put me on the air and interviewed me, which means I made my GTA Rock Station debut. Appropriately enough, my segment was during the 90s Nooner.
It was worth the drive to Oshawa.
