The News

 . . .or at the very least trying to make it into the news; this plan is just crazy enough to work! Melzer is at it again. Find out about Operation @thehour on his website and help Zombie Boy get the attention of his favorite nightly news/talk show The Hour, a CBC Canada show. Melzer is a big fan and wants to be on the show talking about podcasting, writing, social media and of course his book The Zombie Chronicles. How can we help him make another dream come true? Check out his site to find out. It could be a tweet thing to do!

With Evo Terra

Did you know Evo Terra was doing Emergency Intervention? About a month ago I received a message from Evo Terra about a new group called Social Media Triage (SMT). I was interested as I’m involved in a number of social media sites and, lets face it, I always wanted to pick Evo’s brain. He has engaged in social media networking from the beginning of the concept. Do your marketing plan a favor and join Evo Terra at Ustream.TV  Saturday mornings at 9:00 am MST. Join the SMT Facebook Group so that you can get the updates. Tell him Podioracket sent you!

See how podcasted novels are changing the face of education. Collin Earl, author of The House of Grey, has something to say about helping students learn English.
