The Garret Tree

  If you prick me, do I not podcast?

A small radio show in the United States says it has fired its home base radio station and turned to podcasting.

There is only one side of this dispute so far, mainly a news release from the show's hosts, Bob Cefail and Laura Betterly, which has the headline: Podcasters fire radio station.

According to the news release, Cefail and Betterly have a show called "The Profit Doctors" which they broadcast through WTAN in Clearwater, Florida.

On September 16, apparently, the station cut off the show's access to their 800 number, with 10 minutes to air. When the station could provide no other way for guests to phone in, Cefail and Betterly walked out and later sent a letter to WTAN, "firing" the station.

The release says
The Profit Doctors solemnly avow that they will be operational on another terrestrial station as soon as possible and will continue to podcast their show to the thousands of people world wide who want to hear what they have to say.

From the websites listed on the news release it appears that their main topic is how to improve marketing in the modern digitial media age.

The Profit Doctors show, on its website, seems to aim at people who want to get "free publicity" for their products.

Their main company In Touch Media group offers seminars and other information for people who want to improve their marketing.

Public sector, private sector, podcasting sector: the times they are a changing.....

I write in a renovated garret in my house in a part of Toronto, Canada, called "The Pocket." The blog is named for a tree can be seen outside the window of my garret.

I'm a Toronto-based writer, photographer, web producer, television producer, journalist and teacher. I'm author of five books, the latest A River Kwai Story: The Sonkrai Tribunal. The Garret tree is my blog on the writing life including my progress on my next book (which will be announced here some time in the coming months) My second blog, the Wampo, Nieke and Sonkrai follows the slow progress of my freelanced model railway based on my research on the Burma Thailand Railway (which is why it isn't updated that often) The Creative Guide to Research, based on my book published in 2000 is basically an archive of news, information and hints for both the online and the shoe-leather" researcher. (Google has taken over everything but there are still good hints there)

New blogs as of Sept. 2009
