After the passing of Bob Goyetche in November, the Canadian Podcasting community rallied and decided to have a memorial PAB reunion and boat cruise in Kingston where the first PAB conferences were held. This is the weekend. I can’t go till tomorrow, so I made a quick walkcast using just my phone. My how times have changed.

I’ve been working for a couple months to produce a webpage of Canadian podcasts which have produced over 100 episodes. In the podcasting world, the 100th episode is considered a milestone.   Click here to go to the Canadian Podcast 100 Club.

Congratulations to the great folks who created 100 or more episodes of the  following 21 Canadian Podcasts.

Congratulations to the great people who have brought you all this great programs.

I have compiled the list using the amazing Castroller website. Castroller is a site that allows you to easily find, manage and share collections of podcasts. Check it out.  You can find all the Canadian Century Club Podcasts at .

You can import an OPML file of the whole set into your favorite podcatcher at

If you have a podcast with over 100 episodes, feel free to add the Canadian Podcast 100 Club to your site with a link to

Please let me know if there are other Canadian podcasts with more than 100 episodes which I have failed to add to this list.  I would be happy to add them.

  • Update: Somehow, the amazing lovehatethings blog and podcast slipped under the radar of my awareness.  My loss.   Anthony Marco is a blogging and podcast machine.  In a little over a year, he has posted about 500 articles and 104 podcasts about, technology, pop culture, music, social media, the copyfight, a pinch of sarcasm and a pound of rant.  Congratulations Anthony on reaching the your 100th episode.  I’m late to the party listening to your podcast but I’m hooked.

Podcasters Across Borders was in Kingston last weekend. On Saturday evening, we took a lovely boat cruise around Kingston complete with an open mic for all the podcasting musicians. This show features highlights from that cruise and includes performances by myself, Mark Blevis, Bob Goyetche, Chris Brogan, Jay Moonah, Danielle Lennon, Bob Ledrew, John Meadows. My daughter proved that she was the youngest podcaster on the boat by interviewing people using the video feature on her camera. Her interviewees included myself, George Motoc, Andrea Ross and Chris Brogan.

Enjoy a slice of PAB.

Over the past few weeks, several of my peers in the podcasting community  have reached the milestone of 100 shows.  Congratulations to Mark and Bob at the Canadian Podcast Buffet, Isabelle and Dave at Broca’s Area, Mitch Joel at Six Pixels of Separation, and Javier, Gerard and the crew at the Hands and Feet Show.  The Bob and AJ show is at show 98 and should be able to release their 100th show before Podcasters Across Borders in June.

My current episode of For the Sake of the Song with Kyle Heimann from Popple is Episode 50.   I was feeling a little down that it will be some time before I reach my 100th episode, then I started doing soime math.  I currently have  6 more shows ‘in the can’ to be released between now and the end of June.  With podcast extras, and other special episodes I have 65 produced shows on my For the Sake of the Song site.  I also produced 25 audio podcasts for my Lenten multimedia project, 40 Days of Catholic Media on my Catholic Canadian site. We produced 14 episodes of the Podcamp Toronto Podcast this winter.  My recording of my brother in law, Drew Beatty’s podcast novel, White Trash Land has 23 sections.    Since October 2006, I have hosted about 20 episodes of the Librivox Community Podcast.  I have also completed 89 sections of public domain books and poetry for Librivox.   There are probably a couple special one-off projects with groups like Twisted pines that I’m overlooking as well.

Just a sec while I do the math here.

65 plus 25– carry the one,  add 14 plus 23, then 20 more add 89 equals…

236 audio programs that I have produced in the last 18 months or so.

(give or take a few)

Well none of my projects is currently near the century mark, I do believe I’m amassing a fair body of work.

Enough of blowing my own horn.  I now return you to the regularly scheduled conversations with some wonderful songwriters.

Mark Blevis

In the podcasting community, Mark Blevis needs no introduction. He is co-host of the Canadian Podcast Buffet and Just One More Book!. His other podcasts include Electric Sky , Growing Enthusiasm , The Robert Farrell Podcast and Swimming In Literary Soup. He also maintains the Canadian Podcast Directory and organizes Podcasters Across Borders, along with Bob Goyetche. Mark is also a songwriter and musician, having played in the Robert Farrell Band. He has a sample song available as Mark Harold Band on the Podsafe Music Network.

Our discussion was wide ranging from music, to podcasting and beyond.

This Week, I thought I would do an End of year Round-up of For the Sake of the Song and replay some of the great music I’ve featured this year. It was tricky picking just 12 or 13 songs. Since March, I have recorded 45+ episodes of For the Sake of the Song. If each song had 3 or 4 songs, thats over 120 songs to choose from. This is episode 37, so you can see from above that I already have a number of shows ready for 2008. Upcoming guests include John Lunman, Peter Judd , The Undesirables, Trout Fishing in America, Mark Blevis, Manitoba Hal, Pork Belly Futures and Chris Yale.

I have also continued to be a regular contributor to the Librivox Community Podcast and have started a podcast for Podcamp Toronto. In 2007, I produced about 60 podcast episodes, and I’m not sure how many chapters and poems for Librivox.
