Blog it, ToledoWritten by Lisa Renee Ward | | firstname.lastname@example.org
In past columns several blogs that have had companion podcasts have been featured, podcasting is becoming a popular method of reporting and entertainment. It is possible to listen to podcasts without an Ipod or a similar device; it’s just a simple matter of downloading the file to your computer and using a media player such as Windows or Real Player to listen to them.
This first site is not a blog, but what it features might be of interest to those of you who are fans of history and classic radio programs. The OTR Podcasts. What caught my attention was a May 1956 performance of an opera called The Toledo War, or The Michigander’s Bride, an opera by David Broekman, libretto by Edward Eager. OTR also features classics as The Saint, and Sherlock Holmes.
As a quick reminder, several local blogs that use podcasts that have been featured before are; Lucas County Choppers (which features video), The Yippie Show, The Nookular Option, Sylvania City Councilman Mark Bula and Diana Schnuth’s The Low Carb Lifestyle.
Next we go on to Bill Kudzia’s Kooz News. His recent opinion on the ruling on the local Ten Commandments is thought provoking as well as his latest post on the New Orleans Mayor’s race.
Two brothers are the writers of BaylyBlog: Out of our minds, too. David lives in Toledo where he is a pastor of Christ the Word Church, Tim is in Bloomington, Indiana where he is the Pastor of Good Sheperd Church. The focus of their blog is religion and politics as well as personal.
Mike’s Points was created with a focus on Public Relations and ”providing ’points,’ comments & links about PR, journalism, blogging, communications, marketing and other items of interest.” A recent post on Hilton Hotels & the military bloggers is one that is highly recommended.
For those of you who are interested in local politics, there is a new political blog in town called Progressive Toledo. The list of team members is growing and as one of them, I recommend it as a place to read or discuss local issues.
Whether you want to read, listen, be political or be entertained, it’s out there on the internet. When Lisa Renee is not out there searching or listening to podcasts, she can be found on her blog, Glass City Jungle, if you have a blog or a podcast you’d like to share? Email her at email@example.com.
