BlogTalkRadio is Broadcasting Live from SXSWi and Columbia University Journalism School Watchdog Conference


So, as you may have heard, BlogTalkRadio is attending a couple of conferences this weekend. Just because you can’t physically attend and meet us in person, doen’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun, however. Allow me to tell you how you can listen in and still feel like you’re there.

First, the Columbia University School of Journalism is hosting a watchdog conference. It is co-sponsored by the Open Society Institute, the Fund for Independence in Journalism, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, and Columbia University‚Äôs Graduate School of Journalism, and yes, BlogTalkradio is there. If you’re in attendance, do say hi to our own Nikki Starr. If you’re only going to be there in spirit, you can listen live on BlogTalkRadio.

Also, as you may already be aware, John Havens will be broadcasting from the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground at SXSWi. John will be interviewing movers and shakers from the tech and social media world throughout the event – and by throughout I mean pretty much non-stop. Check out our SXSWi page for more details. We begin broadcasting late this afternoon. If you’re at SXSW, we want to meet you! If you’re not, at least you can listen in.

Join BlogTalkRadio at SXSWi – At the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground!


This week begins one of the biggest interactive conferences of the year, South by Southwest.

South by Southwest or SXSW, is actually three different conferences – film, music and interactive. BlogTalkRadio is pleased to announce we’re attending the interactive event. In fact, BlogTalkRadio has partnered with PepsiCo to broadcast live from Pepsi’s Podcasting Playground in the Austin Convention Center.

BlogTalkRadio will be interviewing both interactive industry leaders and up and coming new media stars throughout the entire weekend. Not only will the interviews highlight PepsiCo’s focus on enabling social influences, but it will also bring to light new ideas coming from SXSWi.

What is the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground?

The PepsiCo Podcasting Playground is a special area in the Austin Convention Center¬† featuring four “pods” to allow podcasters a quiet, relaxed spot to host podcasts. BlogTalkRadio will be broadcasting live from the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground, and all interviews will also be live on our homepage.

When does is all go down?

The PepsiCo Podcasting Playground, and BlogTalkRadio’s live broadcasts, will take place before, during and after SXSWi. The Podcasting Playground will be open from Friday, March 13 through Tuesday, March 17th, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.

BlogTalkRadio will be podcasting beginning Friday evening, March 13th.

Stop by and Say “Hi”

If you’re attending SXSWi, I do hope you’ll stop by the BlogTalkRadio booth at the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground. It’s a great place to host your own BlogTalkRadio show, plus John Havens and I will be there to talk about BlogTalkRadio and meet the members of our community. We’re looking forward to this event and can’t wait to talk to you!
