In The Works

Todd Cochrane (GeekNewsCentral.com) is poised to take centerstage on the global podcasting scene on Friday the 13th, with a big announcement  — which has been promised for weeks — finally coming in his 64th show. Meanwhile, Peter Kay (VoteHawaii.com), a familiar voice who recently jumped into podcasting, has also been thinking big, looking to make waves out in the middle of the Pacific.

Both Todd and Peter will probably have a lot to say at an open, noontime HAP meetup, taking place at Kakaako Waterfront Park on Thursday, May 12. If you’re a local podcaster, wannabe-podcaster, podcast listener, or just curious about podcasting, be sure to pack a lunch (and some sunscreen) and join us.
