Today’s 40 minute show had the following segments:
- FGI Roundtable – Jim A Jacobs, James R. Jacobs, Shinjoung Yeo and Daniel Cornwall discuss what led them to work with Free Government Information and what we see as the big issues facing the government information community.
- Elizabeth Cowell discusses the GPO LOCKSS pilot project at the Spring 2007 Depository Library Conference.
- Podcast Sampler – we take a quick listen to Profile America, a podcast from the US Census bureau intended to be played by broadcasters. Check out other government podcasts.
- Outro music – Scary Guy by Maria Daines used by permission. According to the story behind the song, this song was inspired by the global Scary Guy project.
In response to a request made on bibliocasting-L, we recorded a three minute promo for the FGI podcast. I explain how we create the podcast and what we hope to do with it.
I mentioned the following in our podcast:
- Our theme music came from Set Me Free by DJ Topshelf and downloaded from Podsafe Audio.
- The background music was “Hobbit & Lord of the Rings” by the Brobdingnagian Bards
