Reel Reviews' first podcast published on October 17, 2004 - yes, podcasting in 2004!
After 10 years of no new episodes, AOL finally pulled the epsiodes from their servers.
Most links to the podcasts are now dead.
I keep this here as a record of one of the original podcasts.

Podcasting 101

I have been asked to be the presenter for two seminars entitled “Podcasting 101” at the Southern California Mac Fair November 13 & 14. It is going to be held at Cerritos College, Student Activities Center, 11110 Alondra Blvd., Norwalk, CA The Podcasting Seminars are at 1:30PM on Saturday and 2:30PM on Sunday. If you are local and want to learn about podcasts or how to produce them please come on by. It is a good event and should be a lot of fun. If you come, please be sure to introduce yourself – I’d love to meet you.

    It was very nice to meet you at BloggerCon III. Like I said, I enjoy Reel Review’s podcast because it feels like the talk is coming from a person like me, who likes to watch movies and then form an opinion about them, but does not work as a film critic for a living. Keep it up. I’m about to go and get Patton to see it for the first time. I saw “Dr. Strangelove” a while ago and I enjoyed it although it has to be a completely different experience to watch it now that the Cold War and the stress and anxiety of those times is over. There are other stresses and anxieties, for sure, but they don’t seem to connect with the topic of the movie. I think it is a superb example of what in Spanish is called “humor negro”.

    I just recorded a new podcast, still in Spanish. I feel though that I now need to work on the website-side of podcasting because mine is extremely simple, just the most basic code to get an RSS going. I’ve come to realize that it’s easier to approach creating a podcast if there is already a blog mechanism in place. I am coming with a completely different approach, and it’s been hard but enlightening.

    Best wishes.

    I live in the Midwest; it would be great if you recorded your presentation and podcasted it!

    Keep up the good work…

    John, I plan on recording it. I have a digital recorder that I’m going to take along. Assuming I can get someone to patch it into the room’s main AV setup it should work. We’ll have to see what I end up with at the end of the day. If it sounds OK, I’ll post it on the site for download. Stay tuned.
