Where’s the Where?

Welcome to the first “Behind the Scenes” episode of “e-travels with e. trules”, a twice a month feature of the podcast, where I will be speaking to friends, colleagues, fellow podcasters and travelers around the world…. in between my monthly scripted shows.

My first guest is my producer, Harry Duran, host of “Podcast Junkies”. Harry has been my podcast guru and guide through this new art form for me, and after meeting him by “accident and incident” at the LA Podcast Festival this Fall, he has helped me condense, consolidate, and re-design my web presence, upload, download, and launch my podcast, and generally welcome me to the international podcast community of podcasting, which is quite a friendly and supportive one, even for an old curmudgeon like me.

Enjoy and Happy Trails…..
