Ask AOA: local podcasts

podcast logoJessica R emailed recently:

I was wondering if AOA readers could recommend any locally-themed or locally-produced podcasts.

Here are a few to start:

Know of others? Please share!

I know WAMC realeases the Media Project as a podcast. I don't know about its other shows.

Here's another: The Jazz Session, an online jazz interview show affiliated with All About Jazz, is produced right here in Albany. I'm the host and producer, and I live near Sage's Albany campus.

I do many of the interviews in New York and most of the rest by phone from home. Albany-based guests have included Brian Patneaude and Lee Shaw, and I've recorded several interviews in town, including with Eric Alexander, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Dan Loomis Quartet, and most recently with John Ellis last night at Red Square.

You can find all the episodes for free in iTunes and at http://thejazzsession.com.

All the best,

Jason Crane

I'm pretty sure that they guys over at The Tuesday Night Tech Show read AOA and have commented on stories before. They're in ...Ballston Spa?

Thanks for the shout out for my podcast with Jim.

One of my clients in Albany has a "webcast" called "Jazz &..."

She used to have a jazz, etc. radio show on WRPI. But I helped her create her own webcast. The show can't be "podcasted" because of cost-prohibitive music licensing fees. But you can listen to her show via streaming anytime at:

The three-hour show is on a continuous 24-hour loop and is updated once per month. This month's program is a very cool collection of music all about the moon.

and its kinda local, but ive been re-broadcasting my college radio show (1998-2001) as a podcast and i'm local... the show was done originally in Oneonta... there's about 80 episodes up and ive got a good amount left to do... http://2bsradioarchive.blogspot.com/ ..its a step back in time situation.

I heard this Podcast from a few childhood friends from Guilderland. They banter about anything from sports to pop culture. It is very entertaining and comes as a high recommendation!! web.me.com/nerdbomer ...check it out Cap City!!

... I can't overstate enough how wrong stereotypes about school districts can be. A lot of people have preconceived notions about places, both positive and negative, that don't always match reality until you and your child experience it yourself. ...
