Fresh Podcast Online

October 7, 2011

We just recorded a new podcast and it’s online.  Someone asked me yesterday “what is a podcast?”.  Yes, she was over 40 like me.  I didn’t know what a podcast was until about 5 years ago either.  It’s a fancy word for “an audio clip that you can get off the web”.  In this case it’s like a 25 minute radio segment.  And the bonus is you can download it to a listening device such as a phone…I listen to them in my care (via phone) on the way home.

Episode #16 of the Northwest Weather Podcast was a fun one to produce.  We talked about one of the warmest Septembers on record and the big time cool down October is bringing.  Plus, the first mountain snow of the season, super volcanoes, and where the bus-sized dead satellite fell.  Both Stephanie and Sophie dropped by…in Sophie’s case she was hungry and we were between her and her food.  And did you know one big Oregon beach town was named by a group of schoolchildren?

We also have a great interview with Oregon AMS President Steve Pierce.  He’s on the show to talk about the big Winter Weather Conference coming up on October 29 from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM.
