Show hosts to discuss podcasting and its emergence as a new media format

SEATTLE, WA,– With just over two months until the 2008 edition of the Penny Arcade Expo kicks off, Gamercast Network is pleased to announce their plans to present a panel discussion titled Podcasting: The New Media. Focusing on the recent emergence of podcasting as a new method of communication, the panel takes place on Sunday, August 31st from 10:00am through 11:00am PDT in Satellite Room 400.

Moderated by Chris Paladino, Xbox Community Manager and member of the Gamerscore Blog team, the panel consists of five hosts from the podcasts which form Gamercast Network. The session is being offered as a true-to-life discussion on the realities of podcasting, learning how to connect with an audience in a fun and unique way, and as an insight into the inner workings of successful podcasts.

Attending panel members include Jeromy "Doc" Adams from Sarcastic Gamer, Chad Hantak from the Video Game Show, Danny "Godfree" Pena from Gamertag Radio, Natalie Sousa from Achievement Junkie, and Jay Van Beveren from UncleGamer Radio and Remember When.

As hosts of popular podcasts that appear frequently in the Top 50 gaming podcasts on the iTunes Music Store and the Zune Marketplace, the Gamercast Network members hope to answer questions about podcasting, the individual shows, and what it takes to turn a few people in front of a microphone into a fun, successful commodity that can reach a new group of listeners while still branching off into a more accessible form of communication.

Podcasting: The New Media is open to all attendees at PAX 2008, with the panel taking questions throughout this fun and exciting event. Listeners of the Gamercast Network shows are encouraged to come by and spend a few minutes with the people behind the voices of their favorite shows.
