Brian Greene of Doop design has created a mailing list for those interested in being involved in podcasting in Ireland. This is the first step in the creation of a representative body for Irish podcasters. According to Brian:
The function of the list is to discuss the setting up of a representative body for Podcasters in Ireland. The list is open for anyone to join and discuss this topic.
The need exists to safe guard the activity of podcasters regards licencing, legal and a range of other issues like standards, training, hosting, product placement & sponsorship.
As someone who has done quite a few podcasts and who intends to do many more in the near future, I have signed up and will contribute to this body – if you are interested in podcasting in Ireland, I urge you to join up as well.
