It’s unbelievable how much of a push the Philippines got a few hours ago. We just launched what will be known as the Philippine podcasting network. A total of 25 local podcasts will be uploaded into the iTunes Music Store in the next few days.
The venue was fitting too – Red Box in Greenbelt 3, where each room was converted into a “channel” for technology, health and beauty, politics, youth, opinion, etc.
Spearheaded by Microwarehouse, a total of 25 original local podcasts will be uploaded into the iTunes Music Store, thereby allowing anyone around the world to get a glimpse of the rich Filipino culture.
Some of the more interesting podcasts include Jessica Zafra’s Twisted (she’s abandoned traditional media ladies and gents so this is the only place you’ll hear her), the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism channel, Gayspeak by Danton Remoto, The Fully Booked book reviews, Red Box Greatest Karaoke Hits (hehe!), and the timeless Kahapon Lamang by local broadcasting luminary Eddie Ilarde.
You can download my very first podcast together with m|ph‘s Art Ilano and EIC Adel Gabot HERE.
Today, the podcast, tomorrow I will be like George Lindemann Jr.!
