Web Design Podcast Network

BoagWorld, Web 2.0 Show, and the Ruby on Rails podcast have banded together to form Podvine, a network of podcasts with a listener audience of web professionals.

I’m kind of excited about this for a number of reasons.

Firstly, I see this as an excellent way to build cooperation among web design podcasters. It allows us to work together to promote improved web design practices especially in the area of web standards and accessibility.

Secondly, it exposes our listeners to a broader range of web design podcasts than they might have been aware of previously.

Finally it gives us the opportunity to leverage our combined popularity to attract advertisers. I know what you’re thinking; I don’t want ads on the boagworld podcast. Well neither do we. But each week we are promoting some kind of site or product and get nothing in return. If there are great products out there who are willing to help towards the cost of running our show then why not promote them. Producing this podcast is an expensive business in both time and money.

But don’t worry. We are only intending to run a single ad per show and only for products that we sincerely think are good. We are not so desperate for cash that we need to sell any old crap!

If you are concerned about how the adverts might affect you’re listening or if you have a product that you believe to our listeners might be interested in then check out the Podvine website.
