My USA TODAY #TalkingTech podcast hit a new high last week–we made the top 15 of most downloaded shows on Stitcher, the insanely popular podcast app.
#TalkingTech came in @no. 12, up 9 from the week before, and is in great company with NPR, Freakonomics and Joe Rogan.
We’re higher than popular shows and hosts like NPR’s Planet Money, Rachel Maddow, Marc Maron, Niel deGrasse Tyson, the Nerdist and Tim Ferris.
In the technology section, we’ve been no. 1 for four weeks in a row.
If you’re new to the show, I publish new #TalkingTech audio reports daily–7 days a week, with commentaries, interviews and reviews. You can find them on Stitcher, TuneIn, iTunes and SoundCloud. On Thursdays, we do the #TalkingTech Roundtable live on TuneIn. They all live, naturally, on USATODAY.com as well.
In recent weeks, guests have included YouTube star iJustine, KTLA’s Rich DeMuro, online radio host Tom Leykis, and a slew of start-ups–including Shyp, Washio and Ring.
Another busy week in podcast land. ICYMI: here’s our #TalkingTech collection, for your listening pleasure.
Finally, end your weekend with the amazing laugh of YouTuber Michael Markman, a.k.a Mickeleh.
The VidCon 2015 convention in Anaheim is now history. Here are some scenes from the floor.
We start with YouTuber Toby Turner posing with fans.
The Instagram booth let folks fall backwards into yellow balls. Most took video selfies while they were doing so.
Justine Ezarik (iJustine) was mobbed everywhere she went, for photos.
Green screen fun.
That’s a realistic statue of the guys from Smosh that folks posed with.
