Bernie Goldbach’s vidcast experiments with new format

20 Nov

Bernie Goldbach may not be a household name, but for listeners of the podcast FIR (For Immediate Release) he’s the Irish correspondent who delivers an interesting perspective.

So I was really curious as to what got him started on a format like this, pointing a video camera at a newspaper, flipping the pages, and discussing stories. It reminded me of a radio segment on BBC radio (BBC World Service, if I am not mistaken) where the host/anchor gave listeners a summary of the news every day.

Some podcasts do this, but a video podcast has an additional benefit of pointing to the story itself, and being able to comment on parts of it.
