Podcasting is the new Punk Rock! Podcasting saved my life. What IS a Podcast? Podcasting is a new digital communications medium that is not only changing the way people consume media, it is changing peoples lives. Through my journey, I have met fellow podcasters, and listeners, whom I now call friends. The inspiration and comfort this medium gives to so many is a story that hasn't yet received the attention it deserves. In 2009 things went crazy for me and my family. We were living in Virginia when I was downsized, leaving us with a mortgage and a feeling of What now? Times were tough. No one was hiring. This downward spiral lasted for a few years, forcing us to return home to New Jersey to live with relatives. I was in a deep, dark depression. At my lowest, I picked up a book from the famous movie director and podcast pioneer, Kevin Smith. The book gave me permission to do something crazy, if not desperate. Do it Start a podcast Go talk on the internet with your friends. And so I did, starting my own highly successful podcast: ThatMan on Fatman. But this film is not just about my journey. Its the journey of the many podcasters, and listeners, friends and family, and how this medium is changing, helping, and even saving peoples lives, let alone building communities. The world is now at everyone's fingertips and podcasters are the pioneers of a new digital age and medium. Please join me in this insider look of a world heading for tomorrow.
