Much doing in the land. First up there is the L.A. Podcasting Festival September 26-28 2014 in Beverly Hills. If you think this is going to be a Nerd 101 fest you are .25 correct. There will be nerds but there will be a lot more comedy and and performance based podcasters. Think of it more as a film festival but for audio. However I suspect there will be a bunch of video recoding going on at the event.
And if you can't make it to the festival you can purchase a live stream ticket for the doings and beings.
On September 30, 2014 it will be National Podcasting Day and there will be live stream events to pluck much wisdom.
You can check out the event page for more info.
Whoops, so late, gotta go.
