About

Welcome to The Podcast Place! This is a new site brought to you by a bunch of people who have a love for podcasting. The site began in December of 2008 and is still under construction.

What is “The Podcast Place”?

microphoneSince the creation of broadcast media, the business in suits, and government censorship have ruled over everyone’s personal freedom. With computers, the internet, and finally podcasting, that all has changed!

So now with the freedom of expression that podcasting allows, it also creates the freedom for people to be pointless and lazy, to speak when they’ve got nothing to say, and pontificate whenever possible.

That is where we come in!

We tried to use other podcast review sites, but always we ran into the same problems. For one, they never told us when a podcast was dead. What do we mean by dead? When a podcaster makes have a dozen shows, one ever week or two and then stops. That show is dead. Nothing is worse that reading a description of a podcast that sounds interesting and to find out is hasn’t been updated in 2 years!

Another podcast is the lazy people. You know, the two guys who thought it would be great to do a podcast, so , of course, they pick movies as a subject because everyone goes to movies. If you lucky they actually watch the movies they review (trust me, I’ve heard podcasters talk about movies they saw years ago by memory), but still they’ve got nothing new to say.

Next we come to the conversationalists. Where are the lazy movie people are usually two guys, the chat people, usually two, can be any combination of guy/girl. This is where they set up a couple of microphones and they just talk for an hour. “Y’know, not everything is an anecdote, you have to discriminate! You choose things are funny or mildly amusing! You’re a miracle! Your stories have none of that! They’re not even amusing accidentally!” – Steve Martin as Neal Page in John Hughes’ Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

With all that, the dead podcasts are the most irritating. When you do a podcast and you begin to build an audience, you build a trust with them that you will be there on a timely basis. When you just stop, it’s a slap in the face to all that listen.

One thing you might notice on The Podcast Place is we never rate a podcast. This is for one reason, we offer reviews on so many subjects and many of these subjects we know nothing about. We cannot tell you if the podcasters are knowledgeable or not. We can only tell you if the show itself is done well and is active. It is up to you to tell us if the podcast is worth listening too. Please leave a comment, so others might learn from you listening experience!

We are always looking for others to help review and recommend podcast. If you are interested in being a part of The Podcast Place team, let us know!

    Hi!

    Having read your review criteria, I’m suitably cautious about reaching out to you, but I think my show fulfills all your requirements.

    It’s called MIGHTY MOVIE PODCAST – Interviews with Filmmakers. We’re just finishing up our third week, and have already posted interviews with such unique directors as Tim Disney (AMERICAN VIOLET), Eran Riklis (THE SYRIAN BRIDE, LEMON TREE), and Slava Tsukerman (LIQUID SKY, PERESTROIKA), with Michael Keaton and Atom Egoyan coming up soon.

    I’ve been doing film journalism for a while, mostly text in such publications as Cinefantastique and such online outlets as the Independent Film Channel and Air America Media. I moved into video a few years back, and now am hoping to fill film fans’ hunger to go behind the scenes with these short (usually about 15 minutes), candid, and entertaining interviews.

    Listen in & let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Best,

    Dan Persons

    The Serving Donuts podcast is hosted my two friends, Scott and Jim who are professional broadcasters who’ve looked for a different way to communicate with the audience. Sometimes there are guests. The show revolves around news, relationships, the battle of the sexes, and being married. It’s lighthearted and fun. Give it a listen if you have the chance.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    My name is John White. I am the host of a weekly podcast dedicated to my favorite NFL team, the Carolina Panthers, called Cat Crave Radio. (http://catcrave.com)

    I wasn’t sure how to contact you other than to use the same method used by the gentleman above.

    The show has been in production now for a little over a year – 60 episodes in all. Please consider this as my submission for review.

    Feel free to contact me at the email address provided. Thank you!

    Hello,
    We would be greatly honored if you would take some time to listen to our podcast and review it!

    The same group of guys that brought you the Metal Rules! Magazine in the 90’s, now have a radio show. Metal Rules Radio interviews musicians/personalities in the metal music community, reviews song submissions from up and coming artists, and has fun discussing a variety of topics every show. New episodes are posted every Sunday.

    Thanks for your time!
