I’m the 9th Most Recognized Voice in Podcasting

While I was at the Expo I ran into Dan Klass of the Bitterest pill (One of my all time favorite podcasts, my show "Building a Better Dave" is a cheap immitation at best of the genious that is Dan Klass). While I'm interviewng him he says, "Hey, you're #9 !" and I'm like "Fwa?" he explain that Alex the Podcast Junk UK made a list of the most recognized voices in Podcasting and I'm number 9. The interesting thing is he is #10 (and that is a crime!). Here is how the rest of the list unfolds. 1 P. W. Fenton 2 Trucker Tom 3 Adam Curry 4 Leo Laporte 5 Mr. Cameron Reilly 6 Anji Bee. 7 CC Chapman 8 Franklin McMahon 9 Dave Jackson (that would be me) 10 Dan Klass The podcast Junky reviews different podcasts. Here is what he said about me "If you’re a podcaster and you haven’t listened to Dave Jackson’s “School Of Podcasting – Morning Announcements” then you’re really missing out on a treat.

In other words, they changed their minds. To this people say, "Well if Yahoo is passing on podcasting, then it should mean something." To this I also point out that every major label passed on the Beatles. Meanwhile Microsoft is inching closer and closer to podcasting, USA Today is looking into embracing the "New Media" (apparently strong believers in "if you can't beat them…"). Why Yahoo never moved the podcast directory to the front page is beyond me. Lets create something and make it hard to get to, and then pull it when it doesn't deliver big results.
