If this is the first time you’ve heard about our podcasting project, you might want to read this post, The Golden Age of Podcasting, and listen to this conversation that Patrick and Mark had about podcasting in general. We started recording several weeks back and have heard back from some of our first interviews: Here’s what Tolman & Wicker’s CEO Greg Van Ness said after he’d spent an hour doing his first podcast.

Podcasts with our region’s thought leaders is one of the innovative ways that 805connect is bringing relevant, useful resources and connection to businesses of all sizes throughout the 805 corridor.   I recently had the opportunity to join Mark and Patrick in a podcast, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Not only was the conversation wide ranging and thought provoking, but Mark and Patrick elevated our discussion in ways that I think will provide listeners with key insights for all businesses that can be easily understood and considered for implementation.   I recommend the 805connect Podcasts for listeners and participants alike.  I know I learned some things by participating in the conversation, and I believe you will too!

What a treat to be in a professional studio to do the podcast with you today. You and Patrick are knowledgable, warm, welcoming and asked excellent questions about the topic of self and indie publishing in today’s business environment. It was my pleasure to be a guest and I look forward to hearing from your listeners when it’s time for them to think about indie publishing. Thank you so much.

The 45 minutes flew by.  It felt like an enticing mix of easy banter at a bar, intellectual fodder at a coffee shop and vision sharing at a retreat.  Mark is a master at making sparks fly!

I thoroughly enjoyed being a guest on the 805conversations Podcast.  The opportunity to converse with Mark and Patrick regarding a variety of relevant business topics was refreshing and insightful.  There is great information and new vocabulary that everyone can learn by listening to this series of conversations with business leaders in the 805connect area. Without hesitation I would encourage all business professionals to take a brief moment out of their busy day and listen to the 805conversations Podcast.”
