Tim Bourquin – Podcast & New Media Expo

Tim Bourquin and his brother Emile co-founded the Podcast and New Media Expo in Ontario California in the summer of 2005 setting the bar incredibly high for all future podcasting events.

In this interview we look at Tim and his brothers contribution to the podcasting space. We talk about the Podcast & New Media Expo, and the birth of an event where the podcasting community came together as a big family. For those that where not involved in the early days of podcasting this episode is going to set the tone for what I hope to accomplish with this show.

Tim is no longer active in the podcasting space beyond being a fan.. But you can check out his latest endeavors at

Mission of Podcast Legends

Podcast Legends is a new podcast hosted by Todd Cochrane that talks to podcasters who have had and some still do have major influence over the podcast space.  It will take some time to just to talk to the podcasters that started the podcast evolution and my initial focus will be the 2004 to 2006 time period.

The goal is to get these luminaries stories whether they are still podcasting or not.. I want to hear the genesis of their podcast, what made them do a show, the challenges of the early years, where they are today, insider notes from the past, and where they think the space is going.

We have 100’s to interview, and already have a list of nearly 200 that have been suggested by podcasters. For now the site will focus on the early years and progress as we get as many as possible to tell their story.

My end goal is that by talking to wide diverse group of podcasters, that we will be able to capture the history of podcasting in a way that gives “everyone” a voice to provide input.

While I have not yet secured the PodFathers Adam Curry and Dave Winer, my goal is to have them both on the show in the near future.
