It’s amazing how fast Podcasting went mainstream. 8 months ago there were only a few hundred Podcasters, now there’s hundreds of new Podcasters every day. And as Podcasting continues to go more mainstream, the “voice” of Podcasting is starting to change.
The original Podcaster was typically someone just talking into a microphone in their basement. The Podcasting movement kind of had an underground purity to it. But now bigger names are starting to get involved.
Everyone from ABC News to Queer Eye For the Straight Guy are using Podcasts as promotional tools for their shows. And as of today, you can add Pauly Shore, aka “The Weasel” to that list.
Pauly Shore and the folks at TBS have posted ads around the Internet (including MethodShop) promoting a Weaselcast.
“Want to know more about the man formerly known as “the Weasel?” Download Pauly’s Minding the Store podcast to hear him talk about his loves, his life… and, oh yeah, his new show.”
The ad links to a Podcast where Pauly talks about his lack of Podcasting knowledge and about his new show Minding the Store. The Podcast is basically a loose conversation with a guy named Marlon from El Salvador who has a little trouble with the English language.
What do you think? Is this Weaselcast funny, entertaining, awful, boring, brilliant, etc… ? Post a comment below and join the conversation.
