Podcast Movement Denver Blubrry Recap – PCI 361

Beer Cups were a popular swag item at Podcast MovementAfter much preparation and anticipation, half of Blubrry’s Podcast Movement attendees headed to Colorado from Michigan while the other half simply headed from their homes in Denver. It was refreshing to see the conference so well attended and the team was excited to talk to would-be podcasters, newbies and, of course, to catch up with veteran podcasters and friends.

Today’s Hosts: Mike Dell, Todd Cochrane, Cathy Beuten and Ben Beecroft
