“Today, we are so excited to announce the newest addition to our communication channels, the “Voice of Business” Weekly Podcast, sponsored and produced by Chamber member, ALTRES and hosted by Jo McGarry.
The ‘Voice of Business’ Podcast provides a platform for local businesses to share their stories of success, as well as provide valuable insight into the business landscape in Hawaii. Episodes are hosted on the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii’s website, along with various podcast hosting platforms including Spotify and Apple Podcast. Each podcast episode will be between 15-20 minutes in length. Our hope is that the listenership can use this podcast as a way to connect with local business owners and hear their stories behind the balance sheets.
We are honored to have Jo McGarry serve as the host. She comes from a decades long background in media. Jo was the restaurant specialist at Honolulu Star Advertiser and the publisher of Gusto Magazine for ten years, and the former food columnist with MidWeek, with a readership of more than 300,000 loyal food fans weekly. Jo is also the Founder of MoJo. The Business of Food, Hawaii’s only full-service restaurant advisory company.
You can listen to the first couple of episodes here. Stay tuned for an exciting line-up of speakers as well as other communication channels coming your way!”

Check out “Ten Years in Your Ears,” an extraordinary series of articles from Slate marking ten years of podcasting.
Podcasting is an overnight success after years of work. Not 35 years; only a single decade has passed since this Guardian story used the new term podcasting. The medium was briefly the hot new Internet star (Word of the Year 2005!) and was then quickly eclipsed by YouTube, social media, Farmville, and a thousand other new new things. Now weâ€™re told podcasting is back, a resurgence complete with a flurry of press attention, new companies jumping into the space, and that precious commodity the Internet bestows and rescinds in mysterious waysâ€”buzz.
PodCamp Hawaii is coming, October 24-25, 2008. Whether you are new to blogging and podcasting or an expert, you will discover a rich world of warm, friendly, smart people and will be able to network with some of the internetâ€™s most forward thinkers.
Remember though, this is an UnConference! That means the sessions are all free and anyone can speak. There is no top-down style, and there is just as much going on â€œin the hallwaysâ€ as in the sessions. Be prepared for incredible learning, dialog, and networking as hobbyists, professionals, educators, musicians, ad execs, govâ€™t agencies and nonprofits all come together to learn, share, show, and tell.

HAP member Vernon Brown of the 808Talk podcast has crossed into the next dimension of video with 808TalkTV.
“Since I am approaching my one year anniversary of podcasting I decided to add an extra cut for my listeners and do a little video podcasting,” Vernon writes. “I’m no pro, but many of my listeners have been asking if I was going to morph to the video side so I guess the pressure got to me and I put together a little something to give a glimpse of what I want to do.”
He says 808TalkTV will “show my favorite places in and around Hawaii and take a visit with some great and wonderful people and the things I love.”
