The CommsCafe chatWelcome :-)

It’s been a while — and we knew you missed us so we came back!

In this cheeky chat we:

  • Craftily reference a YouTube video of Aussie satire show CNNNN
  • Let you know that GoToMeeting.com are our sponsors (and we think their product is great, too!)
  • Chat about Allan’s recent ‘off the grid’ experience over the Dec-Jan period — he loved it, we missed him, and he only thought of Lee twice but was blown away by how ‘matter of fact’ some folks in his travels consider podcasting and blogging
  • Talk about the time it takes to create a podcast versus a vidcast versus a blogpost, and Allan has a superb strategy for dealing with the whole ‘time it takes’ issue for SMEs (Small-Medium Enterprises) — plus he explains why he rarely listens to podcasts and explains why Auburn University takes a day off to celebrate Robert French once making the ‘Coffee Stain at the Bottom of the Cup’ section of Allan’s blogroll.
  • Link to such luminaries as Mitch Joel, Bryper, Josh Hallett, Robert French, C.C. Chapman, The Divine Miss M (nice new image for your Diary of a Shameless Self-Promoter podcast, Heidi!), Donna PepsiCola, Steve Crescenzo, Stuart Bruce, Shel, Neville and FIR, and the IABC Conference in New Orleans
  • And talk about LibraryThing.com and the wonderful scanning mouse you can buy for $15-20 — well worth it!

Along the way we rip the p*ss out of each other (as usual), disagree with each other (as usual) and shed more light on business communication than you will see at an Aerosmith concert.

Agree with us? Disagree? Let us have it – both barrels! Drop your comments on the show blog, or even better send a Waxmail to our new Gmail account: commscafe at gmail dot com.

All in all, 36 minutes of caffeine-fuelled hyperbole and satire, which you can either download and listen to right away, or else subscribe to via your rss podcatcher. And if you are an iTunes user, you can find our podcast in the iTunes Music Store (for free, of course!) Beware, though: iTunes has a funny habit of not picking up all of our chats; you are better off copying our rss feed and then, in your copy of iTunes, go to ‘Advanced’ in the top menu bar, ‘Subscribe to Podcast…’ and paste in our rss feed there.

Until next time (paying clients must always take priority): take it easy, take some risks, take your chances where you can when you are playing Roger Federer.
